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!

Perk of being an introvert: I can satisfy so many of my own needs without compulsive need to go get it "out there" and make life even messier via hormonal, emotional and/or energetic enmeshment. #boom

Met up with Christelle in Cusco, sorted our individual and travels, ate a burger with fries and egg inside, wandered about in San Blas #bliss #sisterhood #girlgoneinternational

Might I be able to get refund for program X that I don't resonate with? Maybe... Pays to ask and get creative on how to reclaim more money!!
[Commentary: In the end, this guy used the fine, fine, fine print to say no. He promised big, big promises and lied. #reverserolemodel]

Feeling like a millionaire by renting a car to drop X off at game and go finish my Mastermind PowerPoint slides and speaking notes for launch at coffee shop.
[Commentary: Hmm... actually, having now developed the art of discernment, I didn't feel like a millionaire. I felt like a house wife, which is the external golden standard of what a woman should be and the illusionary satisfaction of having met that golden standard made me feel like a million bucks. Wow! What a discernment!! #seeing #enlightenment #clarity]

Universe supporting me: X reschedule web rebranding consult and AirBnB guest arriving late. Yay!
[Commentary: LOL! The Universe is, indeed, loving. Even though everything that I used to be doing was not what I was meant to do, they were all stepping stones towards what I am doing now, which is what I'm meant to do. The Universe could have siphoned my health, bankrupted me, thrown me out onto the streets homeless, but it didn't. Instead, it taught me how to co-create and perceive miracles, as a life tool and a faith muscle. Wow! #seeing #unfolding #quest]

Brunch with Lisa like 2 peas in a pod <3 #sisterhood

He uplifts me, comforts me, asks if I want to go for a walk when I had a bad day, holds me tight and rubs my back when I'm crying. #love
[Commentary: Yeeps, I don't remember who "he" is, but I thank him from here until eternity. #truth #grateful]

A note from Susie: I'm reading your post this morning riding the train into work, smiling and it brings tears to my eyes. Go girlfriend. We have never met and I already feel enormously inspired and feel your huge energy. Xxxxx #moved #love #testimonial

Not a single speck of fear left in my body to add myself just below Hilary Clinton on most well travelled people list. #reclaiming #empowerment
[Commentary: LOL! I remember doing this. A decade of self-development will siphon the fear right outta ya! Sadly, wikipedia deleted my entry :P]

Chantel sharing her cupcake with me #love

Spent an hour chatting with Andee and laughing. I feel so supported by her. She talks about how hard it is to go at it alone... when it doesn't have to be. She is showing me where lone wolfing takes you. #mirror #sisterhood #empowerment
[Commentary: And yet, 82 moons later, I still find it challenging to find support. I ask waaaay more than I used to... but have yet to find support strong enough to lift me... Why is that? #inquiry]

Pixar movie: I know. Sniff. I cried when goofball island crumbled and when Joy said "all I was trying to do was keep her happy." #remember #pain

Old farts in Fiji, Morocco and eH enjoy being with me. I DON'T enjoy being with THEM!!! And I don't have to!!! Whaaaaat?!? This is new?!?
[Commentary: You mean, I don't have to hang out with old farts who have a languid, old, draining, dragging energy? You mean, I get to say no just because? You mean, I get to just say no? Whaaaaat!?! #epic #aha #turningpoint]

Talked with Joyce on phone for 2 hrs. Went from both sobbing on not feeling "good enough" to laughing about boys and hypocrisy of life #love #sisterhood #joy

20 moons ago...
Dear Mr. Dude, you can't come to Lapland, Finland and speak Italian and expect to be understood. Are you stupid? #reverserolemodel
[Commentary: Hmm... is this my gift of #seeing, my travel guru-ness or my empathy blind spot? Or all three? #inquiry]

Thank you X for raising the bar for me: for the first time in my life I call in a man with heart AND spine AND wallet AND purpose. This is new! #firsts #turningpoint #reclaiming

Wow, realised that I don't have to take event X so seriously. Place already picked, show up, shake some hands, kiss some cheeks, have fun, move on. The marketing is done for us. Don't need to lead. Don't need to do. Just need to show up. #wisdom #boom #presence

After dinner when I said I was cold, walked two steps in front of him, turned around and he already had his jacket off and held up for me to wear. Aaaawwww, how #sweet! He told me that he feels so at ease being himself when he's with me. [Yeah, I have that affect on humans, regardless of gender or age. I know now that it takes others to #mirror our gifts back to us because the ego is only able to see outward.] When we're together, everything is lovely. It's when we're not together that my mind starts wondering if he's enough for my lifetime well-being, actualization and spiritual growth. #discernment
[Commentary: Presence is a double-edge sword. When we are together, I am completely present with him. The moment and everything connected to it is perfection. But if I only let presence lead me, then I would have settled for an unawakened angry boy who couldn't rise with me on the soul maturation journey. Have some god damn standards, Ella! #remember]

Woah! Massive fee difference between Transferwise and PayPal of $250!!! Not ever using PayPal ever again to do international transfers. #remember #wisdom

How funny that I worked in Rwanda for the national curriculum development centre in 2007 and now [8 years later] I'm creating curriculum for my own coaching business. Full circle! #unfolding #surrender #unknown

41 moons ago...
Caught myself in a scarcity loop: read book at warp speed so I can return it and get my money back within a week... tied to limiting belief that I won't find value in the book anyway to prove myself [my ego] right that I'm beyond help and no book can give me any value [because I have no value]. Shiiiiiiiiiit! #growing #truth #enlightenment

With infinite grace, freedom on!

xo, Ella
