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!

Nicole acknowledged me as a breath of fresh air, so kind hearted, so thoughtful, so giving and so generous.

41 moons ago...
The term: husband trainer. Ugh [see myself in this] and lol [now that I know I can move past it]!

14 moons ago...
OMG baby pink is all over just like my rebranded website!!! I can predict trends. #whoknew

48 moons ago...
N semi-retired at 36. I'll be fully retired at 32. Phsshhh. We'll be retired waaaay before then!!!
[Commentary: LOL! Oh delusions of a little kid.]

15 moons ago...
OMG so glad I don't have sponsors for my trip and HAVE TO to take fake pics of all my comings and goings for THEIR sake. Bleh.

Customer service rep: asked her again for her name and thanked her by name. I made her smile. I made her day.

23 moons ago...
X shouted my name like how she calls her bro. Lacks softness / femininity. #reverserolemodel

66 moons ago...
Give self permission to have a good cry to release emotional charge, self-compassion, empathy. See self as precious child, mix in gratitude

Pep talk with Joyce after X bailed. I was stuck between voices of my sage and saboteur. Don't judge or get rid of my hyperachiever. Embrace all aspects of self and this self-acceptance will work miracles on my life.
[Commentary: Wow, I was wise. I wish I remembered my own wisdom :P]

Lauren called bc she knew that I can make her feel better. Uplifter!

40 moons ago...
So glad I never cared much about clothing or looking good (like X is sooo chocked by desperately wanting to look good, poor guy). And so grateful to have discovered the value of feeling good, over looking good. #reverserolemodel

Damn you mom [I love you, you know that] for role modelling being a doormat. You really do train people on how to treat you

68 moons ago...
Look at me worrying that I had overdone it with X. She's super excited to see me and thanked me for taking the time to enroll her.

10 moons ago...
I cry for the children who had to become adults before they were adults. I mothered my mother.

10 MOONS AGO...
X admitting: This is not about parental bashing, but about healing our wounded child. I’m a holistic chiropractor, I’m supposed to be the model of health! But I’m not. The silence, the isolation, shove it down and smile when I can’t even get out of bed in the morning. #reverserolemodel

You don't know the value of your freedom until it's taken away. Or when you've never had it and taste it for the first time, you can't go back. You can NEVER go back. That would be Spiritual suicide. #boom

26 moons ago...
So thrilled I had the courage to ask fellow travelers to take a photo for me at top of castle tower [Ljubljana, Slovenia]. Even if it was staged :P No regrets.

54 moons ago...
Meditate daily. If skip a few days, first time in 1.5 months where I felt stressed about where the next paycheck was coming when client was already sending me $6k and aerial yoga studio has $$$ potential. Just hadn't planned on 2 months of little business income. [Even though $15,000/month had come in earlier this year.]

29 moons ago...
After I left brunch with X, I felt uneasy. It was the feeling of being happy... with a best friend who is native and likes the things and food I do... but... something about her energy... bleh... mismatch. Had a headache after being with her.

12 moons ago...
I love that before and after aerial yoga class María has a receiving line of cheek-cheek kisses. I love the hugs too. 

56 moons ago...
Renting my place out is excellent practice for having a family and killing perfection. Others will make a mess and together we'll clean it up. Things don't need to be perfect.

Women who are free will set the world free.

Freedom on!

xo, Ella
