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!

Had a Monday with nothing yet planned and succeeded in overcoming my "work harder, you lazy failure" whip and changing it to "I believe I can achieve wealth with ease. I believe I can reach wealth with joy. I believe I can achieve wealth with less doing and more allowing." #mantra #wisdom #turningpoint

X went too far I had a surge of anger [sign that boundaries have been crossed], named it and went into living room to practice vuuuuu-aaaaah rage release. I get it now: the parental/developmental/estate trauma had to happen the way it happened, so it’d lead me to Brené Brown's work, then her Daring Way certification, the to my Daring Way supervisor, then to Somatic Experiencing to heal PTSD then to this rage release tool. I claimed so much power back in declaring that I had every right to feel whatever I want to f*cking feel. Stayed present, stayed loving and claimed back truth that I don't have to be smiley and cute and bright and giggly at all times, just to please and placate everyone else. No one gets to play on my empathy to steal my right to feel and process rage. Feeling so empowered. #enlightenment #turningpoint #unfolding

I finally feel enough!!! 101 countries, baby!!! #firsts
[Commentary: It  only took 10 years of non-stop self-development and 100's of angels and demons and mentors and ogres and 101 countries under my belt. Sheesh. #journey #unfolding #empowerment]

I'm slicing and dicing and making more blogs out of my existing blogs. Leverage. Sooo easy. Why make it hard. #aha
[Commentary: Darn, 45 moons later, I keep forgetting my own #wisdom. Hmm... why is that? #inquiry]

Oh holy spirits how good it feels to not give a nano-fuck about anyone else’s stuff / shame / inadequacy. I’m living my joy. You go live yours. Oh the bliss of decoupling my emotions from other people’s shortcomings and inadequacies. Oh to be free like this, there is nothing better!!! Oh sweet freedom! What YOU think is sooo removed from who I am that I’m untouchable. I’m so in love with ALL of me that your lies can’t hurt me. No lies can. #boom #enlightenment #journey #healing

Coaching with Talia helped me realise that I can't hop on one left leg for long. I can walk miles and miles on two feet though. And maybe my left knee is hurting when it's telling me to do less, and be/attract more!! Balance of being with doing. I think I get it. #wisdom
[Commentary: LOL! I get it, then I forget. Many more psychosomatic pain incidents would take place in these 50 moons for me to "get it" get it. Sigh. #journey #unfolding #patience]

Universe please forgive me for labelling X a "fun friend" as Y did. I was so blind. Please forgive me for under-estimating X's depth, capacity to love and her love for me. We were all swept away by Y's "queen be" dominance. But no more. #seeing #enlightenment #love #remember

First pair of brand name Nike runners, ever!!! Magenta pink, super comfy, from outlet mall, great arch support, feminine, great price. I feel sooo good in them! #thelittlethings #firsts
[Commentary: Explains why I almost had an aneurysm when I realised I forgot them in a hotel in Bali :( I have very few material belongings, but the ones I have I still deeply attach to. I wonder why that is... #inquiry]

Group lunch: I choose my preferred date, so I can go to NSA right after. If it doesn't work out, I let it go. No more running around catering to others every desire. #turningpoint #reclaiming #empowerment

Dear business, thank you for webinar practice. I can talk and talk and say what I want to say. #selfexpression Thank you for growing me... for forcing me to grow. #seeing #freedom

OMG so elated that I've found my groove and rhythm and "Chanel no. 5" inspired brand. My actions aligned with belief that I am worth following. Finally! Feeling so cleansed that it's not longer a mishmash hoarding other people's quotes/work. Mwah! To self! I've arrived at a new plateau. Woot woot. And I'm going to celebrate at the top of Ljubljiana castle!!! The key really is SIMPLICITY and BATCH. It is waaaaaay too much work to find a photo, then manually add a quote, make sure the font colour and image blends visually. F*ck that shit! I'm not wasting my time doing an interns full time job. #enlightenment #turningpoint And just so much love for my readers and followers even if few.

Another counselling session on anger. Feel so angry that life has been this hard. So angry that I've tortured myself and hated myself for so long. Programmed into brain: the world isn't safe. Turns out, scarcity IS a trauma. #whoknew Must accept that that was then, this is now. What you focus on (not getting a head start in life) expands... so let it go! If you don't, you can't focus on anything else. OMG I'm brave!!! If I wrote my story without my past, it wouldn't be an awesome story!! Someday I'll be really proud of my life story... Explains why X's story (once upon a time there was this little white rich girl with a loving family) is not being picked up by publishers. Ella, mourn what could have been. Go through the anger, the injustice, the loss. Accept, then forgive, then move on. #wisdom #journey

Wow, what a treasure and blessing that I got full refund for my AirBnB in Bali because that's what I wanted [and what was supposed to happen]. That booking was made from madness and scarcity. And with dad passed away, so goes the scarcity… And so goes this booking: won't be here for a whole week with dad's funeral. That feels so strange to even write down. Don't want to be near other resorts. Ubud it is! #unfolding #magic #letgo

My heart was pounding with squeal of "Yesssss!" after Breakthrough call with X. She's my the closest human to my ideal client avatar. It's because I committed to Coaching Certification that these stars are aligning. I already had the idea of reaching out to scholars. This validated my #intuition. Aaaaand, I raised my hourly fees to $359 and $449. My mind could have gone bonkers and made shit up about how the client would bail, but it didn't. Ooo-wee! New ideal client!! #remember #unfolding #trust

Last minute travel change to Bagan, Myanmar turned out to be one of the greatest trips of all time for me! Inspired by poster of hot air balloon. City X was huge disappointment. Choose travel experiences for ME, not for others. #remember #globetrotter

Wow, my business has already absorbed my $5k around-the-world flights!!! Incredible! Go, business, go! #lifestyleentrepreneur #globetrotter

Assisting Synergy reminded me of what it'd feel like to work 9-5 job again. Come home so tired, there's no space for creativity or business building. #somatic #remember #gift

Saying to my date: your heart is beating really fast even though you're not moving. #sweet

Weekend with girlfriend, realising that I make up a lot of stories. I embellish stories. I want to be more authentic... #firsts #turningpoint
[Commentary: Ahahah, I mean, I didn't lie, but I definitely distorted stories to make myself look stronger than I was so that people wouldn't attack me like they had my whole life up to that point. Sigh. #growing]

What a blessing that Ayahuasca retreat started as a tiny group of 4 (as opposed to Leadership training group of 26!!) #thelittlethings

Women who are free will set the world free.

Freedom on!
