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!

Woooooow! I'm so calm AND so wise AND so grounded, running this webinar because I have beautifully rich material to share and my wholeness and worth claimed back! What a difference 2 years makes! #daringway #risingstrong #courage #healing #reclaiming #empowerment
[Commentary: I even remember the shame storm after my first webinar where a small handful of people came because I begged them and everyone dropped off after 10-15min... not realising that there was no idea, no matter how much I tested and pre-tested the webinar platform. Argh. #firsts #turningpiont Thank you Brené Brown!! #mentor]

Oooh Nathallee called it, I'm afraid of... not failure... but success!! #wisdom #mirror #sisterhood
[Commentary: Woah! Fear of success is a real, legitimate thing! If I am successful, then... people will steal my money, demand MORE of me, siphon my resources, ditch me, sever our friendship, ostracise me like the last time I boomed in success, etc. etc. etc. It's real. #truth]

My Fb post: Rockin' new year means reading a book and falling asleep to the audiobook version of that same book. Khaled emails: LOL. You're funny. I think I'll be able to pick you up from the airport. Would you like some confetti and doves thrown at you as you grace the Dubai land you'll be walking on? #lol #tribe

Restrict my availability on Acuity Scheduling to increase perceived value of my time. Be: value my time. Do: adjust Acuity. Have: higher value clients.
[Commentary: Back then, external perceived value of my time was the external cue/motivator. But what I didn't realise back then was then was the alignment of this external motivator with my soul's inner agreement and guidance of increasing my own valuing of my time and self-worth. That's why it worked. If it was just to "look busy" or "look good" to others, then I wouldn't have attracted such high value clients. Space before particles! #wisdom #alignment]

Putting eye mask on my face to sleep reminded me of hostel in Zurich. Even though I got work done via Skype in kitchen with X, it was miserable sharing a room with 6 girls, most of which snore. No more hostels!!! #remember

As always, X's website redesign was lickity split fast and I got to chat with Se Young in the meantime :) Just needed to sit down and do it!!!
[Commentary: Hmm, I'd have to disagree with my then self on this one. It's because I was in the wrong format of work (consulting back then vs. coaching now) that there was so much resistance, procrastination and sluggishness. And of course, there was a lot of fear back then too: fear of stepping into my purpose, fear of shining too bright, fear of being too great. #alignment #unfolding]

Found someone's debit card at supermarket. Could have done nothing, but I did something. I sought recognition of course but didn't need it. Didn't yearn for it.
[Commentary: LOL! Oh what a walking oxymoron I was (I likely still am, though to a MUCH lesser degree) to state that I don't need external validation but seek it out anyway. Sigh. At least I noticed that I didn't crave it like a drug like before. #awareness #growing #unfolding]

My email to connector X was f*cking awesome: Appreciating your support and referrals graciously and gratefully. #genius #kindness

Teaching aerial silks: 2hrs for commute, setup, 1hr class, take down. At $25/person, that's $62/hr and after split with biz partner: $43/hr. Not terrible as funnel to my coaching practice.
[Commentary: OMG it was indeed  a TERRIBLE funnel to my coaching practice. The reasons people came to aerial silks class were much different from why people came to 1:1 coaching. With a location-dependent silks class, I made $62/hr. With a location-independent coaching practice, I made $200+/hr. I just didn't see it before! I knew it in my head, but didn't see it with my heart. My mind tried to turn a hobby into a lucrative hobby because god forbid I just enjoy my hobby without making it productive or profitable. Sheesh. Patriarchy and Culture are powerful influencers that have nothing to do with my core values... #remember #discernment #wisdom]

Power of habit: wake up 8am, meditate, "May Cause Miracles" book, breakfast. 9-10 email time, then start my day.
[Commentary: My how I've grown since then from the days where I believed everyone else knew best and blindly followed white American men's advice for success. Ha! How wrong they were. Now I wake up whenever I wake up, meditate, write my "Morning pages", read and drink in my own wisdom funnies through these gratitude blogs, and then start my day. In the evenings, I read and then meditate again to wind down. #remember #myway #discernment]

I'm so grateful I don't have spouse and children so I don't have to take time away from them to do coaching certification. I don't have to feel guilty about pursuing my purpose. And I don't have to feel overwhelmed and do a shitty job at certification because I'm pulled in 6 million directions by all their needs. #remember #freedom #peace

Taking a day to work instead of island hopping around Bolivia. Now that is maturity! #thelittlethings #lifestyleentrepreneur

Returned ladle to X and basically invited myself to dinner at her place LOL! And said yes. Outside my comfort zone. [Gosh... how small I must have felt to think that I was wrong and despicable for inviting myself over for dinner, especially when her hubby was away and she was alone for dinner.] People trust me. She told me she's pregnant and the only person to know is her husband. She hasn't even told her mom yet! We had a great laugh. Humour makes me compelling. [Gosh... how insignificant I must have felt to grow up so serious, so heavy of heart, so sombre of spirit that I thought I was not allowed to be funny, silly and light-hearted. Sad #growing And clairvoyant as my Leadership tribe typed me most compelling when I'm flowing or funny. #remember]

Hanging out as couples
[Commentary: Actually, I don't necessarily enjoy hanging out as couples. I just finally felt like I was no longer a wild horse with rabies for ALWAYS being the only single person in the room. I felt an illusion of belonging, which isn't as great as true belonging which I now have, but it's a stepping stone, an appetiser for what was to come. #unfolding #discernment #reverserolemodel]

Getting X's feedback on my "Reinvented Women" profiles: Stunning! I guess my inter teenager is still seeking approval, but not so much for who I am anymore, more so for verbal "support and encouragement" that I never got as a child. I was expected to succeed but never given the verbal cherishing or encouragement.
[Commentary: I know now that verbal acknowledgement was not my parents' primary love language, plus they never got verbally acknowledged so how would they ever know to pass that on. #healing #enlightenment #acceptance]

Yay! Wave Accounting now has a "Starting Balances" function so I don't have to do circus flips and tricks to get that manually adjusted and balanced #lifestyleentrepreneur #thelittlethings

I'd rather oversend newsletters than undersend and miss someone who really, really needed and wanted to be part of my program #truth #wisdom

Having a flirt-a-thon with X. Why not! It's fun. #lol #play

Aww Joyce called to check in on me and ended the call with, I love you. #sisterhood #love
[Commentary: People, especially white people hehehe, are shocked to hear that we don't say I love you in our family. Growing up, sacrifice was the language of "love". The more you sacrificed yourself for someone else, the more you loved them. So being told "I love you" felt so foreign at first...]

It's a shock that I'm even still alive, no less thriving!!! 8 years on borrowed time. Wow! Goosebumps. #remember

With infinite grace,
