Making this video has changed my life. I hope that watching it changes yours. In the few weeks it took to make this, I've been through tears, disappointment, laughter, anger, terror, and compassion. I've thought about deleting this video and never letting it see the light of day. But, really, sharing this is the beginning of a new chapter in my journey, a new step for me as a leader. This is me at my most raw, most human, most imperfect. And you deserve nothing less. The world needs, desperately needs, nothing less. And if I have to endure discomfort to liberate others' authentic voices, then so be it. My discomfort is nothing next to my potential to change the world. Thank you, in advance, for your watching, your support, your sharing, and your open mind. I am so grateful for you.

What I absolutely love about being an address-free vagabond. I hope that, if you're considering plunging into the nomad lifestyle (as an act of respect for your authentic self), this will give you a helpful (albeit very, very biased) perspective. Thanks for reading, friends!
What I absolutely love about living without a permanent address and leading a digital nomad lifestyle all over the world.

People say "Life is short." People say "You only live once." But how often do we embody these principles? How often do you really experience the fleeting nature of this body you're in right now? How often do you feel, deeply and powerfully, the amazing gift that you've been given by having the opportunity to live, right here, right now, as a human being capable of self-awareness, capable of love, capable of reading these words I am writing to you now? How often do you allow yourself to stand rapt in awe at the opportunity you have with this intelligent mind, this passionate heart, this illuminated spirit?

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.

I thought "don't take it personally" was good advice in dealing with criticism. And then, I realized there was another way - a better way.

Enjoy this story and the lessons within.

As always, I appreciate your comments and your sharing.
I thought that not taking people's criticism and praise personally was a good philosophy. And then, I had an epiphany that turned my world around.

Who knows why one person loves to dance, another person loves to read, and yet another loves to read machine assembly manuals? I don't know. But I do know this - to plunge into the things we love is to plunge into the very core of existence. It is the only route to joy I've found, especially when the things we love are encased in layers of fear and insecurity.

I never cease to be inspired by the capacity that mothers have to love and nurture their children, to stick it out through hard times, to forgive the worst digressions, and to learn to be better people so they can help their children live better lives.

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 ♥

Unconditional love goes beyond holding on and letting go. Real love is about truth. It's about looking at what's really going on instead of the stories we tell ourselves about it.

Story
Tagline
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.
