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]

Thanks to being an HSP I understand people's accents and language really well. Easy natural ear for it. Like babble fish. Gift. No wonder I'm often the translator. And the marriage counselor between my parents. And the interpreter between my clients and themselves!!

I loooooove Sara! She's so sweet, so kind, so fun! And kickass business woman. She'll help me up X's game.

See this face? This is the face of an empowered gal who told off the man, following her for 5 blocks, to f*ck off. What she really wanted to say is: my self-defense teacher taught me well and I will not hesitate to gauge your eyes out, bite off your penis and make you regret the day you were born. Who needs a self-empowerment workshop when you can just take a stroll on the streets of Amman [Jordan] and roar like you've never roared before. Oh and I'd spit on him too. Just so he knows his place. Feeling invincible!

I'm growing too. I entrusted my darling condo to my brother. Even though it didn't come back pristine, I made a connection with him.

Awww he set an alarm and woke up early to Skype with me.

Resting and laughing my head off re-watching Friends

OMG first time in 3 years I actually loved social media: bulk scheduling posts instead of dreaded daily posts. Last launch I put daily reminders in my calendar to manually post countdown graphics. This time I pre-schedule everything. God I love automation!!!

Went into Bose store to buy adapter charger and they just gave me one for free. Aww. Stood tall and confident and open and willing to buy and so ready to receive. Thank you!

Coming home from Viñale [Cuba] and doing laundry by hand, sooo happy I don't have to do anyone else's. Went to bed at 9pm sooo happy I don't have to give sex to anyone or tolerate the night light if they want to stay up. Sooo happy to wake up at 4:30am and listen to Carolyn Myss's "Entering the Castle" audiobook out loud without disturbing anyone. Sooo happy. Bliss of being single. (Seems like I only need cuddles and acknowledgement the week of my period... And the rest of the time, leave me alone. LOL!)

First inaugural Vital Silks yoga event, did so great, was totally in the moment, brought out what my students needed, it was amazing!! Learned a ton! Not as many participants as my saboteurs would like, hahaha, but wonderful experience!!

I was so wrong about X, orphan, rapped, autistic... what a hard life. Be less judgemental, Ella. I thought I already was non-judgemental. Everyone has a story...

15 moons ago...
Talking to Lyna was so life affirming of my decision to cut X out of my life fully. No contact, no make up hug/kiss/sex, no friendship, no nothing. Your behavior disgusts me, so no you don't get to be part of my life. I do NOT give you permission to mess with me again.

I figured out the coughing that Nathallee and I were talking about! It is power chakra pumping to shed old layers of disempowerment!!! It needs to pump, it needs to purge. Got teared up telling X how she disappears on us and it's frustrating and disappointing when she says she'll be here at a certain time and doesn't show up. I've put everything into this and ... tears... of... permission and freedom to say how I truly feel. And she responded so well and so lovingly. It's like my inner child is finally free to express herself without fear of loosing people who she depends on. She powerfully acknowledged that when her freedom starts to affect others, freedom has gone too far. Oh to have the deep trust, friendship and safety of saying how I feel (neglected and disappointed) without retaliation or annihilation of my self-worth has been the best gift in the world.

My flight got changed to 3hrs later. But that's ok. I still got to go to morning sting ray park sans cruise ship crowd. And plenty of time at airport to transfer and select my GoPro photos. Yay! It all works out. And no, I still don't want a tour of the whole island.

You SEE Ella: the AirBnB guest who mentioned this apt as the worst zip code in Vancouver and X who was inconvenienced with my key mix up both wrote ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE things about my apts and me. Proof the Universe loves me. Proooooooof! How much more proof do you need? Enjoy life Ella. Enjoy every minute. Universe has got your back!!!

So hot that X and I ended up watching 45min of how to become millionaire video, some comedies, then early bed time
[Present day: LOL an introverted entrepreneur's dream date night!]

79 moons ago...
OMG! Laundry Upgraded art project came out perfectly numbered and spaced!!!

45 moons ago...
OMG X got an AirBnB eviction notice. Talk about the Universe deciding FOR you when you're wishy-washy and can't decide for yourself!

40 moons ago...
Yaaaay! 2nd offer on my condo sale. Listed Jan 13, closed and completed Feb 17. Never before seen speed!!

16 moons ago...
Absorbing Caroline Myss's voice: what makes you think entrepreneurship and/or financial freedom would be easy?!? What EVER made you think that?

39 moons ago...
Damn, I do have a thing for blond hair, blue eyes. Lady who bought my table on Craigslist, her hubby is gorgeous.
[Present day: Not anymore. Those rose tinted glasses shattered as soon as a dark hair, dark eyes lover entered my world.]

Women who are free will set the world free.

Freedom on!

xo, Ella
