There is a freedom at the intersection of: entrepreneurship, enlightenment and enchantment. These are the 22,000+ gratitude moments that got me here. [From gratitude journals 1999-2018]

There was a Starbucks right there to greet me with familiarity [Seoul, Korea] and I got a $5 green juice... and I saw it: the empty plastic bottle is perfect for my coconut oil which leaked that morning. Thankfully I was smart enough to put it in a ziplock bag. And now I saved myself a big mess. Ready made plastic container perfect size for my coconut oil. Tada!!!

I am in love with my life. I am in love with me.
[Present day: Hmm... this seems to be a lessons/state that I forget over and over and over, then remember here and there, and forget over and over and over. Hmph... Seems like when life is going well, ie the way I want it to, I am in love with life and me. When things don't go my way, then I hate life and me. Childish, but true. We all do it!]

Uber driver offered to wait for me outside FedEx office. I said no. Felt bad for him waiting for me. I'll figure out Internet and how to call another Uber... Then said, wait, yes. Yes. Do wait for me. Yes, yes yes!! I paid for him to wait. And of course I caught free wifi from FedEx to change Uber destination. Wow, that was easy. Stop feeling like a bother to the world, Ella!!!

What if the Universe is saving me from myself and saving me for a love so grand that all these boys will have seemed like dodged bullets. Phew!!

Self deprecating "You missed the show" comment about self crying over grandma's death... Saw it and experienced it for myself.
[Present day: Yeah... once I let myself see and feel an emotion, here self-deprecation and self-hatred, then it's over. I get it, I get it now!]

Abra Malaga [Cuzco, Peru] 62km bike ride 4300m down to 2000m. Breathtaking! Best experience ever! Level 3 seeing. Such fresh air, such an awesome ride. Lucky I got a terrific bike.

Oh this is so fun, just head out and go explore with the flow. Not knowing where I'll end up.

Oh wow, stopped eating sweets living in Spain and periodical breast soreness went away. Bad, bad North American refined sugar!!!

CTI coach training: First day I felt so uncomfortable and unconfident in what I had to coach without knowing how to coach. Second day, with more practice I felt stronger and more at ease and more willing to fail.

That was nice, to lay down stretched out on 3 train seats horizontally. Thank you DB [Munich, Germany].

Can X come out and play?

12 moons ago...
X picked me up to shake the sand off of me. He commented Jesus Christ you're not as light as I thought. Yeah, I might look petit but I am hella strong.

12 MOONS AGO...
I discerned: dating him ≠ owing him ≠ marrying him ≠ owing him

Lynn's eulogy: remembered for her sense of humour, planning and love.

Wow post-Vipassana feeling: deep pure luxury at Posada de la Luna hotel, which I treated myself to, then burst and burst of tears came out. Relief, letting go, who knows. So I used those tears and did a "56 lessons from 56 countries" Huffington Post article. Seeds planted by X of 104 life lessons book that I shot down because I thought I'd take too much time to create. But after this good cry, voila! Created my picture book. It only took 45 days... plus 35 years. And hearing X stuck with 250 physical unsold copies of her book, coupled with memory of me dumping 50 of my own physical books in recycling during traumatic estate sale, I'm going e-book route. Definitely e-book, not physical book!

Women who are free will set the world free.

Freedom on!

xo, Ella
