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!

I was spot on: I felt like I hadn't cried in a while, which isn't normal, and then the tears flooded. Now I feel better. #spaforthesoul

Bro made my month with story of his friends hanging out at my place in awe of the location by the beach, all my travels and mocked but admired my coaching "post-it" wall of greatness. It just lit me up!!!
[Commentary: Thinking back... it probably lit my ego up, not me/soul.]

My goodness X is so flaky and unreliable, but when you are with her, she is so big-hearted, so present, so grand, so compelling, so magnetic, so creative, so genius, so fun, so funny, so charming, so real, so wow. She makes you feel like a better person and reminds you to be a better person by her being. And she pulls it all off by ignoring all bombardment of requests coming to her: leave them to their own device and they'll figure themselves out <-- it's great advice!

Maria just said I look like a girl in a magazine. Aww.

Celebration of my awesomeness by revamping content of my website and anchoring myself as a wealth coach. So full of vital energy! Woooooo! #burst

Wow, I was brave enough to do this "56 countries in 52 weeks" trip and keep going, keep building my business, keep showing up for my clients, keep on top of marketing, and keep on top of my financial goals. Wow! F*cking wow!!!
[Commentary: This is probably the second time in my life where I consciously felt proud of myself. I remember the first time clear as day. Fascinating how we're not able to see our own greatness, like the light that beams outward sees only darkness, until a mirror shines the light back at our sight. This is why we never succeed alone.]

No man will ever love me more than my dad!
[Commentary: O. M. G. I can't believe I made such a declaration, which I ask All-that-is-Holy to cancel, clear and delete. My dad wasn't able to love me the way I needed, NO WONDER I attracted boys and guys who couldn't love me any better. Oh. Shit. Cancel, cancel, cancel!!!]

64 moons ago...
- I'll send you off. - Text me. As he waves goodbye in the cab. Thanks for the packing company. I'll have my phone on so text away.
[Commentary: Who knew that this seemingly brief exchange would symbolise the reclaiming of my self-respect and open the gateway to meeting my own inner goddess. The 'how' is ALWAYS not what we expect!]

Biz partner saying to me: I've never felt sooo powerful in my life! (And it was thanks to me!)

Lying in silk hammock in Chung Dam studio [South Korea] I thought, "there's going to be an epic love story tied to this journey" and I actually believed it. That feeling of lack flew away. I don't know when, I don't know how, but it's already a done deal. And now I get to enjoy the revelation!
[Commentary: And sure enough, a year later, in the same month as this knowing, all revealed itself. An epic reclaiming of my spiritual freedom!]

58 moons ago...
Left the phone on silent all day. What a treat, what a blessing!

4 moons ago...
Wow!!! Ayahuasca fried my defaults... including my default of sleeping to numb out like mom did.
[Commentary: And indeed, since then, I haven't slept nearly as much and feel even more vital energy coursing through me. Wow!!!]

While I [my mind] was worrying about not being able to afford AirBnB cost in Europe, X had already submitted coaching scholarship form and was paid whatever fee I asked. So why the worry, eh?

33 moons ago...
Client M testimonial: What?!? Is our next call our last call? I'm not allowing that.

73 moons ago...
Took time for a healthy kale salad then a zen power nap

67 moons ago...
OMG X and Y's photographers reached out to me to rebrand their company website

9 moons ago...
OMG, these guys are hilarious at TLR with their helium balloon farewell messages to Thomas LOL!

Roomie tells me about a king that she met online and I exuberantly shout: WE have to meet him!! She hasn't even met him yet, but WE have to meet him. And then we laugh uncontrollably every time we recall that line.

88 moons ago...
Mint.com automation, no more paper, no more manual input! Sweeeeeet!

19 moons ago...
At TD Scholars conference, realised: People only wants to hear about the grand successes because it's mediagenic. But overachievers need to hear below-the-surface stories of overcoming adversity, balance and recovery, unspoken failures/crisis, dark winding path, authentic life lessons... this is the hard part.

15 moons ago...
I have so many titles: success coach, positive psychologist, psychotherapist, illumination mentor, founder, author, researcher on hope, grace and awe, overachiever, polymath, lifestyle entrepreneur, digital nomad.

Wow X is a hustler, I just said no to being part of her telesummit and she went and asked if I knew anyone in my network who could benefit from the exposure. I admire that directness. But bleh, hustler energy is so uncompelling and so uninspiring. Bleh. Shake her off.

Women who are free will set the world free.

Freedom on!

xo, Ella
