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!

Evening texts with Jill

X is so afraid of Craigslist people, so won't sell her things there. She sees this world as hostile, instead of developing trust and faith in seeing the world as benevolent #reverserolemodel

Coming home and being on a roll, throwing things out. If I don't truly love it or want it, toss it! Toss it aaaaaaal!! #liberation #deepcleanse

Today, I chose to become a leader. To stand in my full power. To be the bold courageous change maker that I want to be, to transcend my ancestral lineage, and to be all that I know I can be. #declaration #empowerment
[Commentary: Shiiiiiit... it takes time to embody a power declaration! It's been 4.5 years, and I feel 92% there compared to -34%. I wonder if 100.0% is possible...?]

Wow, iPhone 6s calendar has 'Travel Time' feature to block out travel time #thelittlethings

The feeling of X having ripped me apart (due to her own misplaced rage and scarcity), I used it in my coaching to describe how client Y's boss is ripping her to shreds. Y shouted, Yes! Yes! You're describing EXACTLY how I feel! Wow... everything does happen for a reason.
[Commentary: What a twisted way, Universe, to expand my already large sense of empathy and compassion. Hmm... So twisted. Sending a person filled with rage and scarcity to attack me, so I can know EXACTLY how my client feels. Geez. #soulmaturation]

I love the shocked look on people’s (especially my immigration lawyer's) face when I tell them I’ve been to 106 countries (aka badass brave) and have tens upon tens upon tens of thousands in savings (aka non-poor starving digital nomad) and punched out a 24-page business plan with 5 year forecast in 48hrs (aka 'not just a pretty face' boss lady) and I look no older than 24 (queen of self-care). #nonconformist

Advil worked sooo fast because I don't take meds of any kind #healthiswealth

I'm not gonna count on X to share her testimonial. She's just not there yet. She will be. Just not yet. I think it's because she doesn't want the world to know that she needed a coach to champion her to the next level. #vulnerability

Shawn Achor's talk about mirror neurons and how negativity is contagious made me feel, once and for all, at peace with leaving X! Thank you, Universe! Thank you. Oh god, on my knees, thank you, eternally, forever more. #boom

Live a life of abundance, not of latte deprivation!!! #wisdom

Yesssss! Declined the ambassador position for X!! Woot woot! One less thing to do. <insert deep sigh of relief> Can focus on my writing and on high calibre clients again. Yes!!! I got what I wanted: to experience being in the pathway of easy, abundance and influx, with someone else doing the marketing. And I declared Hell No! to working with Y (victim, attractor of drama and negativity) and Z (flaky, inconsistent and immature). Thank you all that is holy for giving me this experience, helping me discern between hell yes and hell no, and giving me the clarity and courage to decline. #boom

Sucked up the fear, posted coaching scholarship on X group anyways... Got applications within minutes. Yaaaay! Got over the fear. #brave

OMG by avoiding/delaying working on slideshows, got a msg from X about how I only have a tiny set of slides to fix. Woot woot!! Less work for me.
[Commentary: Ah, I see. Giving projects some extra time and breathing space reduces the amount of manual work for me to do. I see, I see.]

Ugh, did it all wrong: was chasing poor starving clients to save them à la mother Theresa, rather than building powerful content and deep relationships with founders and trailblazers to champion them to upgrade their businesses to heal even more of the world.
[Commentary: Doh. Sigh. We all start somewhere... And we grow and we shift and we live and we learn.]

Aww it was so nice to go for a walk on the seawall with Dani, talk food + nutrition + travel + boys + life + everything. Fun and friendship!! #sisterhood

I love it! Cute looking guy is within MY line of sight, and I'm not in his. So I get to stare at eye candy all day long, without him seeing me do it. Hahahah. Lol!

Laughing and giggling with Priya and reminding myself: friendship before business, always. #sisterhood

New mantra: it's time to meet my wants, above and beyond just my needs. I am worth it!!
