Your ideals matter!
That’s our slogan here at RiVillage. In search of the shortest path towards their ideals is the biggest reason why people join RiVillage. All the ideals you have together are referred to as your ideal self, which is what you truly want to become. “Everything else is secondary,” said Steve Jobs.
The fastest way to discover your ideal self is to help others discovering theirs. The most effective way to help others is to speak to them using Thumoslang, the nomenclature for social life.
All participants in RiVillage are asked to become fluent in Thumoslang. Fluency in Thumoslang is what it takes to discharge full respect to your ideals. This requirement is paramount because, to all in RiVillage, your ideals matter.
