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.

Written almost a year ago, this post really moved me today. I remember how difficult this was to share and how liberating of an experience it was. Enjoy it!
Sometimes, self-love looks like killing off a part of yourself, so that another part can thrive. This is the story of why I wrote a eulogy for my past self.

The biggest mistake people make when trying to be authentic is just that - they try. They see these role models of what an "authentic" person is supposed to look like or act like, and they try to emulate that.

Authenticity isn't about what things appear to be. It's about allowing things to be what they are. Authenticity is about getting away from hiding, from wearing a mask, from always asking "How should I act? What should I say? What will people think?" - and that includes asking "How should an authentic person act? What would a genuine person say?"

Being authentic isn't about making yourself a certain way, and it's not even about finding out what you "really" enjoy as opposed to what other people enjoy or who you "really" are as opposed to who other people are. Authenticity is allowing your likes, dislikes, personality, appearance, hobbies, and beliefs to be fluid, to change, to evolve as you learn, grow, and experience the world.

At its core, the practice of authenticity is the practice of surrendering of the tiresome task of keeping up appearances and taking up of the lifetime work of allowing what is already within you to come out, blocked by as few internal and external obstacles as possible.

And who knows what will spill out of you if you just allow it to? Who knows what is within you awaiting recognition, awaiting permission to show itself to the world? Not even you know. Until you try. Or, rather, until you stop trying so hard and just let yourself be as you are.

This is, basically, a love letter to you. From me. You should read it (it's really the polite thing to do, you know) ;)
How I realized that I'm weirder than I thought and where I've realized my fellow weird people dwell.

What I found to be the secret ingredient to self-confidence. I hope this helps <3

Once upon a time, I was a connoisseur of self-loathing, a master of shame. I was all too familiar with every shade of self-judgment, and I did my best to cover it up. I hated my body, so I spent

What event or person are you waiting to be rescued by? Forcing yourself to wait is a kind of self-abuse. Why not you? Why not now?

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.
