Why do you make time for your chores, your job, your errands, while forgetting to appreciate the very core of this moment - the miracle of your own existence? And how can you begin? How can you bring this awareness into every moment, every day? Can you do it now?
And, imagine, just imagine, what would happen if you did? You would set this world on fire, wouldn't you? You would be the person you see in your daydreams.
Enjoy this story and the lessons within.
As always, I appreciate your comments and your sharing.
I work with many women who have children and those who come to me bathed in suffering always seem to tell me that they want to heal not just for themselves, but for the ones who look up to them. When I first heard that, I thought it was one, special woman who felt that way. But now that I've heard it dozens, if not hundreds, of times. It's not just one individual mother. It is the beautiful human spirit shining through us all - the indomitable will to grow, change, learn, evolve, and give everything we have.
I am not a mother, but sometimes I feel like one. Nurturing people with love and affection, showing them their potential through their fears, watching them grow strong and, hardest of all, letting them go into their own sunrise when they are ready. I know it can be hard. I can't imagine how hard it is when the people you're supporting are tiny and when you're supporting them all the time.
It's a tough job. And it's one of the most important jobs there is.
All i can say is - mothers are awesome. If you're a mother yourself, take a moment to appreciate yourself and really receive all the love around you today (instead of always trying to please or serve everyone else). If you've got a mother in your life, take a moment today to show her how much you really care. Because the truth is - the most giving, loving people won't ask you for what they need. But they need it anyway.
Give some love and kindness today. Give more than you thought you were going to. Say something really honest and heart-warming. Don't just give a Hallmark card and cook some eggs. Have a real, soul-touching moment. Say those words that you'll wish you'd said one day. Be brave. Be transparent.
It's in those moments where we show others how much they matter that we really change the world. To love another is the best way to teach them to love themselves.
So get loving ;)
Happy Mother's Day ♥

Vironika’s work helps people cultivate self-love, heal mental and emotional suffering, develop healthy self-care habits, build deeper relationships with others, and unleash their inner potential to change the world.
Vironika is a different kind of teacher for a new generation. She doesn't wear makeup on her face and doesn't cover up her humanity. She openly speaks about her failures, imperfections, and struggles.
She says, “Admitting my imperfections and trusting my intuition has led me to some life-changing conversations, many happy tears, and a lifetime of memories that I wouldn’t trade for the world. Memories that make me smile and, each day, help me realize that, maybe, people are ready for a leader who’s human. Maybe they’re ready for me.”
Vironika’s experience did not come from any university, organization, church, or school of thought. Her wisdom flowered out of her recovery from a decade-long struggle with mental health, addiction, eating disorders, and profound self-hatred.
Having pulled herself out of the clutches of mental illness and profound suffering, Vironika strongly believes in the power, as well as the responsibility, within each person to do what she has done – to heal themselves and go on to heal the world.
On this journey that continues every single day, Vironika continues to create valuable resources for people on the journey of self-discovery. Whether she’s writing an article or coaching one-on-one, she uses her youthful energy, down-to-earth wisdom, and real-world experience to help people radically transform their relationships with themselves, each other, and life itself.
Despite her success with healing herself and helping thousands of people around the world, Vironika will not call herself an expert. She believes that, deep within, we all have the antidote to our own suffering and the key to the door of our own happiness. She believes in being a guide, not a guru. She helps people become the experts on themselves.
