I love reading, don't you? It was reading which first inspired to to write, and my relationship with books has carried me through some of the hardest times in my life.

The other day, a client of mine asked me to make a recommended reading list, and I was surprised that I hadn't thought of doing this before. I hope that these books open your mind and change your life, like they've done for me.

As always, I love to hear from you. Please leave me a comment on the blog to let me know if you've read any of my suggestions, or if you're going to give one of these a try. 
A recommended reading list of 17 books to help open your mind and change your life as you walk on the journey of self-discovery and truth-seeking.

Love is the most important thing. If you must love from a distance, for an hour or for a lifetime, so be it.

My holidays have been really hard. This post was hard to share. It was also necessary. If not just for my own healing process, then also to draw some attention into the silences in our culture.

Life lessons I’ve learned (and re-learned) from a difficult, frustrating holiday season full of triggers, pain, and discomfort.

As you review the year that's passed and get ready to welcome a new one, you have a choice. You can focus on everything pleasant that hasn't happened and everything unpleasant that has. You can also focus on everything unpleasant that you've avoided, and everything pleasant that you've stumbled upon. And still, there is a third choice: to embrace it all with a glimmer of curious wonder in your eyes.

When we label our experiences as "good" and "bad," we insult nature's wisdom. When have you experienced a tragedy which has not taught you patience, compassion, or tolerance? When have you experienced a pleasure which has not sparked fear, disappointment, or addiction?

Life is just life. We can be pessimists. We can be optimists. Or we can just allow things to happen as they happen, trying to judge as little as possible, and maintain a sense of curiosity. What will I learn from this experience? What will I learn from losing this experience?

We all know - years end. Friendships end. Vacations end. Life ends. This is true. But fear ends too. Pain ends. Self-judgment ends. Excruciating can't-breathe-without-you-here-I-want-to-die torture - that ends too.

If we hold out for long enough, everything meets the same fate. Nothing is here to stay - not the excruciating or the exhilarating. So why not cultivate a sense of peace and wonder with it all? Why not sit back and let life put on its show, and allow the ride to be what it is?

People make resolutions at this time of year, and I think this is the most important resolution of all - resolve to be a student of life. Cultivate awareness, so that it may become clear which things are meant to be controlled and which things are meant to be accepted.

Like this, you can have peace - the kind of peace that no amount of money, no relationship and no amount of pounds shed can give you. The peace of wisdom. The peace of not fighting with the way that things already are. The peace of inner peace.

Happy New Year, my friends. <3

The holidays can be challenging. It's been a challenging time for me. Once upon a time, to protect myself from hurt, I built a wall around me. Inside that wall, I rotted, I suffered, I died. So I knocked down that wall. I forgave. I let go. I embraced.

But forgiveness is not the end of the story. After forgiveness, the wall is gone, yes, but all the reasons that the wall went up in the first place - those are still there. They're there, and in some ways, just as painful as they've ever been.

I've gone on this long journey of wishing I was someone else, becoming someone else, and then returning to myself - only to find that 8 year old girl inside of me again. And she's soft. And raw. And real.

She feels. She hurts.

And, again, I am the silly one, the naive one, the immature one, the stupid one, the wrong one. And I don't, won't, can't say anything back. Yes, I am still my 8 year old self. But something's different.

I am my 8 year old vulnerability with my ancient soul holding me together. I am the reed that bends to stay alive. I am the air through which bullets can fly, and they will never stick to me.

These times are hard, but I won't walk away jaded, darker, different. I feel. I cry to heal. If you saw me in those moments, maybe you'd think I was a mess. But I don't call it a mess. I call it strength.

Real strength isn't about building walls. Real strength is about staying open, no matter what. It's about taking life - with all the pleasures that fade and all the pain that sticks around for too long - and not shutting down, not closing down, not building up those walls.

Resilience isn't hard, impenetrable, iron. Resilience is flexible, soft, warm.

Stay strong. The real kind of strong. Don't let your automatic mind reflexes make you jump away from pain and towards pleasure. Make choices. See clearly. And never, ever, stop feeling.

Don't go numb. The world, even with all its horror, is too beautiful to miss.

Yes, it is very nice in cottage country around the lake areas.    Yeah, Winnipeg is kind of in the middle of nowhere in the prairies. LOL.  We have not had that much snow this year thank goodness, and the temperatures have not been too bad either, better than previous years.

Story

You Matter. You're Not Broken. You're Stronger Than You Think.
Introduction

Vironika Tugaleva is an inspirational speaker, life coach, founder of The Real Us, and author of the award-winning bestseller The Love Mindset.

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.
