There is a freedom at the intersection of: entrepreneurship, enlightenment and enchantment. The path of Grace, lined with 22,000+ documented moments of daily gratitude (1999-2018), lead me here. Enjoy the daily wisdom funnies, especially the present day commentaries!

Adios X, hello Y. How funny that Y was right there in front of me, but I was wasting my time with people like X, A and B. #wisdom
[Commentary: As a spiritual ganster, I gotta say, THE hardest part about soul maturation is not only losing friends (as the Universe orchestrated for us organically) but of consciously letting go of "friends" who are not your people, who will not fan your flames. It's a painful process, the body registers pain. And it's a necessary process. #enlightenment #surrender #letgo.

Client X: "I'm totally an overachiever. Parents raised us to get straight As. My siblings are that way as well. I'm not allowed to get sick. ... My ex-husband would never have let me sign up for coaching with you." After a stroke AND a divorce, she is resilient as f*ck! My oh my, what a badass! #badassery #empowerment #reclaiming #turningpoint

TED Talk: the biggest turn on for men is to see a woman radiant and confident #truth
[Commentary: Now... how to get there, actually, genuinely and authentically become radiant and confident, how molly that's another mega-quest all together. #unfolding #growing #enlightenment]

My date had me at "be", he said "Sometimes you just want to be. [...] You're so much fun. You're like a radiating beam of sunlight."
[Commentary: Whaaaaaaaat?!? That's it, one single lone bar "standard" and you're his?!? Whaaaaat?!? He uses the word "be" and I'm giving up all of myself to "dance, monkey, dance" for him?!? That's f*ucked up!!! The Culture that raised such a broken girl is f*cked up.!!!].

OMG, I actually did market in reverse: what, then how, then why #aha #shit
[Commentary: Watch Simon Sinek's TED Talk on Why - How - What.]

Today my setting a model for my dad to express himself finally paid off. He expressed himself and asked when I'm available to give him a hand. Rather than imposing or assuming I'm always available. In his own way, he's telling me that he misses me and wants to see me. He bought meat and asked me to call him when I'm heading towards their house. I taught my dad to express himself! Holy shit!! Whenever I have these oppressive cries, I'm only moments away from a miracle. Tiny tiny moments away! #truth #wisdom #unfolding #babysteps

No longer hoarding plastic lunch containers like my parents #growing #thelittlethings

Booked Leadership flight to CA and redeemed Marriott Hotel points. Looked up old email for $20 discount to put my flight just under $350, so I can apply credit card air miles. Yay, entirely free trip! #genius #globetrotter

Andee thanked me for event reminder. I wasn't bothering her at all.
[Commentary: How sad that I went through 3 decades of life know/believing/feeling like I was a huge bother to the world. Sigh. Good news is, it's completely heal-able. You gotta do the self work if you want to be free. The price is high, the reward is great. #enlightenment #healing #wisdom]

Googled "How to date an Argentinian" LOL! They are indeed casanovas LOL! The PDA, the wooing, the chivalry, the bellisima principesa LOL! Maybe the girls are my people (primary) and he's just my lover (secondary)... #discernment #dating #shenanigans

Helping a friend enrol a client for him. The Law of Giving. #love

I invited Norma Reid from CTV and Dawn Chubey from Breakfast Television to try Aerial Silks. #boom
[Commentary: They never came, but I can live happily with myself knowing that I tried. Not very hard, mind you, but I tried. #babysteps #wisdom]

Running errands during lunch
[Commentary: Ah yes, the days when, as a consultant, my clients still controlled my schedule. And the highlight of my day was getting away to run personal errands for me, for my soul. Long gone are those days, f*ck yeah!! #lifestyleentrepreneur #freedom #enlightenment]

Ella, you chose your dreams for the journeys they'd make possible, and you knew when you chose them there'd be obstacles, crises, and young souls who'd stand in your way. They exist by design. To tempt you, lure you, test you. So that you can come back, prevail, rise above, and rock on. And ultimately to convince you of your awesomeness. They're part of the plan. There have been no mistakes. All is supremely well. These are the days, Ella, mid-adventure, that will mean the most to you. Enjoy the journey, The Universe #boom #enlightenment #truth
[Commentary: If I remember correctly, I got these from tut.com.]

You can live in the arctic and build a greenhouse or move to Tahiti #lol #wisdom
[Commentary: Tahiti. Final answer.]

Epic fun outing and hug landing in new city #sweet

Wow had a dream about a man being shot in the head from behind :S Maybe it was all that watching of holocaust videos while in Ploand. At least I'm remembering my dreams now! There was more but I didn't write them down right away so I forget now. #turningpoint #enlightenment
[Commentary: Dream Yoga works!]

Brilliant that I took photo of pillow AND asked if I could return the old one in exchange for a better-sized one. And they say Yes!! Oooh-wee! You ask, you get. Sweet honey attracts bees! #turningpoint #ask
[Commentary: Until this day, it irks me that Culture raised me to be programmed with asking for help = death. Sigh. #unfolding]

Sandra said: You're so #sweet I want to put you in my pocket and take you home.
[Commentary: Interesting... I never saw myself as sweet. Thinking back, and especially reading back on these 22,000+ entries, it shows up again and again. What has me not see it too? #inquiry]

OMG crying my eyes out at Gilmore Girls revival when Lorelai has her epiphany and memory of her dad with pretzel and movie. And when she's home Luke give his "I will always be here for you" speech. Gushy tears... no man (or boy, for that matter) has always been there for me. #lol #thelittlethings

Women who are free will set the world free.

Freedom on!

xo, Ella
