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]

Remember: X says "yeah but" a heck of a lot. He's got so many excuses. Such victim in him.

My AirBnB host thinks I'm gonna freeze into a popsicle. He gave me a sweater, hot tea, and aimed the heater right at me. Hehehe. So sweet! I did tell him I'm from the #greatwhitenorth and born in -30C snowstorm. He insisted. Bless! <3

If I didn't have to eat, I'd never go out #hsp #introvert So I guess it's a good thing that I'm taking a ride to Rodney Bay [St Lucia] to have a wander and get some food. I wish I could just order pizza and stay in. #introvertboss

Aha moment: wretched knot in my back disappeared when I accepted that I need to be with, feel and know disgust. It's not an emotion I knew before. This is new. #somatic
[Present day: These days, I'm seeing that being a soul in a human body is like being the ocean in a tupperware container, and the "point" of all of it is to go through the rainbow of emotions and come out the other side to guide others through the chaos called life.]

Reached out to Nicole for self-defense class suggestion and will joyfully spend $99 for personal empowerment. Joy begets more joy!!

Ironic how I don't feel I've achieved enough to be the coach to overachievers. Didn't make 30 under 30 list. Don't have a PhD. Not a millionaire. I guess the reminder is not to compare achievements and that I'm trained and skilled at coaching, not achieving what they've achieved. #wisdom

Wearing my Desigual coat, turned up at Shoegasm, barely looked at price tag and bought four pairs of boots. I loooove looking and feeling pretty. I loooove my life! I'm sooo grateful for the money in my bank account. Thank you Universe for loving me.

Can't help but shake off the feeling that if I had saved even more money on last RTW trip or not bought things that I've thrown away since, I could afford even more luxury on this RTW trip. It's ok, I'm aware of my "regret the past" saboteur. At least she doesn't decide my actions anymore. And with self-compassion going forward, I can change my behaviour going forward.

Thanks to dating mirror, I'm seeing my extraordinary, which motivates me even more to write my book, which motivates me for the first time to want to go through my gratitude journals. Not just mechanically, but truly feel each and every one of them. #author

May 5, 2017: Walked to bed feeling like Universe was near me, with me, inside me, around me. Spoke to It and felt not alone and not afraid. Very cool experience. This is a first! #enlightenment #somatic

I walk up to the bus stop in pouring rain and the bus shows up 30 sec later. I paid 2€ and machine didn't give me change, which is fine because the day before I underpaid and the driver let it pass. Wasn't gonna run around like a chicken without a head making change. Besides, Italian prisons, they can't be that bad, right?
[Present day: LOL! I can't believe I wrote that. So couldn't be bothered running around to make small change for the bus that I'd be willing to go to prison. LMAO!]

Aha moment: I really hate being asked what do I want to do today [as his events calendar and entertainment]. The pressure to plan ahead or justify myself is so irritating. I want to flow. I want to flow to my own rhythm.

Walking to Walgreens [Chicago] there's was a preacher man outside and started with two words and stopped, said good day and that was it. I must exude some sort of "don't waste your breath" and/or "f*ck off" energy in a confident way that he didn't even bother to preach to me. LOL! So cool. 104 countries will do that to you. #rtw

Paddle boarding in sunshine still water, no wind, with Sindy Barra and Maria. And now that we've eaten, we can go eat. LOL! It's called pre-eating. LMAO! Barra paddling with twinkle toes with huge ear to ear teeth grin because we're going for ice cream. (Insider joke: Maria, what is it you cunt face. LMAO!!!)

Free cookies at Tractor because they forgot my sandwich. Thanked them on my way out and for the treats and she was so surprised and grateful that I thanked her. Doesn't everybody?

Oh wow I just stood there and said, I wouldn't do it for less than $50,000. Confident. Knowing. Trusting. Deserving. Worthy. And receiving the abundance in the Universe. And it worked!!

Woke up at 1am to journal my rage for having betrayed myself and paid external attention to X’s needs and mostly (not completely) forgotten my own internal needs. Wrote and wrote, did Somatic Experiencing "vu-ah" exercise and felt so much better!!

Old me: black and white and X would not dare wake me when he goes to work. I'm so open and whole and sweet now that Y wouldn't leave the house without a kiss and snuggle. #growing
