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!

Somatic vuuuh-aaaaah exercise lead to tonsillitis. Powerful release! A lot of stuck energy purging out! Oy. And wow! #epic #somatic #healing

I seem to work really well at a desk with a lamp and blackout shades so I have no concept of time and feel like the day does its thing and I do mine #presence #lifestyleentrepreneur #joy

A line in my first poem: I adore you for what you’ve already done. Not for how much yet to be done. #freedom #beauty

A year after completing my Six-figure Simplified program, clients X and Y both got paid $1,200 USD per day. Booya!!! What a privilege as their coach to share in their joy!!! #joy #enchantment

Being on the road makes me want to work even more, so that I can be on the road more. I can't believe how languid and blah I felt in Vancouver. I feel like I belong here, on the road. I'm producing my best work! I even have to beg myself to give myself just one more hour of work because I love my work. Which is the same work as before... but I'm different. #lifestyleentrepreneur #whoknew

Woah! I dreamed that I adopted a daughter. She was 4-ish. #wtf

Wow, watching myself on video was… ok. It was ok. And when it was my turn to go upfront, I didn't have a shame attack. I felt like I belonged. I felt like I deserved and was worthy to be there. First time, ever!! #firsts #whoknew #journey

Watching Parenthood helped me discover my values of peace (hate conflict) and kindness (hate meanness). And X reminded me of value of competency (hate incompetency). #whoknew

Louise Hay book pointed how X was getting under my skin. Repeated mantra 100x/day, bought expensive moisturizer, set energy boundaries between me and him to unload his poor health habits. Power of the mind.
[Commentary: In the end, none of that helped. Even saw naturopath and acupuncturist. Still nothing. It was 48 hours after breaking up with X that all my eczema vanished overnight. All of it. #empowerment #somatic #healing]

I'm in my happy place working on podcast with Megan!!! #sisterhood #creativity

Huuuuge leap moving to Rwanda. Skipped hugely in title from new grad to manager with 4 staff. I had amazing stories to tell, photos to show and it skyrocketed my professional credibility

On the open road, instant friendships, smiles, openness, and resonance. In Vancouver, a surreal amount of effort swimming against the current to meet a few extraordinary people. Let's not even get started on the dating pool. Bleh. Lol! #contrast

Joyce having her dream baby, Sam's step dad marrying her mom, Autumn meeting Philip at Nascar event and now part of the British royal family. Holy f*ck, amazing stories!!! #stories

Movie in Stanley Park. Blanket. Munchies. Great friends. Guys and girls. #tribe

After 10hrs of sleep, new insight on Instagram: instead of just reporting what I'm doing, wish people well, show kindness and compassion, empathy and love. Ask them how they are. Ask them what they need/want. Duh. Lol! #seeing

I knew it! I knew it! I knew it! I knew my future partner would be in self-development world too!!! So glad I didn't listen to X's "not everyone is perfect, you know" advice, implying I should settle. So glad I didn't listen to messages of "Your standards are too high. Don't be so narrow. You’ll end up alone. That set of criteria doesn't exist. You’re setting yourself up for disappointment." All this advice from single people or unhappy married people I don't resonate with me. Sooo glad I didn't listen to them. #intuition #boundaries #no

Monicah offered for me to stay with her during my NYC visit. (Why am I surprised that she would say yes? Why am I surprised that my friends regard me highly? Gosh I'm so hard on myself... Must see myself so lowest of the lows...) #awakening #seeing

I thought I had to own a home to be worthy of a husband. To show him that I can stand on my own, be his equal, be deserving of him. Ha! How wrong I was. I only needed to be me, be happy and be free! #enlightenment #home #truth
[Commentary: Funny thing is, I did own a home and it's when I sold that home to pursue my bliss and my freedom that I met higher and higher caliber men! Duh. Hindsight is 20/20. Foresight is fear and anxiety. Sigh.]

76 moons ago...
I will not have an acidic cat and mouse marriage. I will know and love myself so that I don't take my insecurities out on others. I am never again a victim. #declaration #claiming
[Commentary: Sadly, I'd be a victim again and again a few times more before reclaiming all my personal power and responsibility. Sigh. #journey #unfolding]

Mainey made time to call me before boarding her flight to SF. Now that's love! #sisterhood

With infinite grace, freedom on!
