Luminita went on to work at Mindvalley as a product development expert. During that time she wrote her wildly successful blog post “15 Things You Should Give Up to Be Happy.”  It became perhaps the most viral personal growth blog post in history. Over 1.2 MILLION people shared it on Facebook. This lead to a book offer from one of the world’s major publishers and a speaking slot at Mindvalley’s Awesomeness Fest.

At Awesomeness Fest, the Romanian-born Luminita talks about “Turning Wounds Into Wisdom” and shares a horrific personal story of trauma and abuse at an early age. And how she coped with these wounds and rather than let them break her – she instead used them to propel herself into a new world, a new career and tremendous success.

This speech, if anything, offers hope. Hope that no matter how awful a situation or circumstance you may have experienced was (or is), the human spirit can live on. And you should never, ever give up on your dreams.

Luminita Daniela Saviuc – also known as the writer behind PurposeFairy.com – is a writer, blogger, photographer, soul sculptor, and a lover of life. More on Luminita at PurposeFairy.com
