Daily Dose of Sunshine, V2.0: Day 11, What You Are Made Of

What you are made of By Stardust & Sunlight

“The same boiling water that softens the potato, hardens the egg.

It’s about what you are made of, not the circumstances around you.”

So the real question is- are you the potato that softens in the boiling water,

or the egg that hardens in it?

Define who are you,

Don’t let your circumstances, your situations, and the people around you define who you are.

Lots of love,


Daily Dose of Sunshine, V2.0: Day 10, Struggle

Struggle By Stardust & Sunlight

There is no shortcut to success. Or to happiness.

Happiness, success, and self-acceptance require a lot of struggle, hard work, and even failures.

And unfortunately, there is no easy way to get there. It is the struggle that marks that journey.

So instead of trying to skip that struggle, learn to embrace it, learn from it, and grow from it.

Let your struggle make you a hustler, and then hustle harder!

Keep pushing, keep walking, keep crawling if you must- but keep going till you get there.

Lots of love,



Daily Dose of Sunshine, V2.0: Day 9, Let Someone Love You

Let Someone Love you By Stardust & Sunlight

Have you ever wondered why we find it so hard to be loved by those who truly love us?

Why do we go looking for love in places where we know its not unavailable?

In people who do not love us and who possibly never will?

And strangely enough, why do we raise such high walls for the people who come to us with ounces of unconditional love?

Because opening up to love makes us vulnerable, and we are so petrified of breaking again, that vulnerability becomes equivalent to weakness. And no one wants to be weak, right?


Being loved is not the same as being vulnerable to being hurt. Being truly loved by someone should be magical- you should feel special every moment of that time when someone else showers all their love on you, sometimes even without any expectation of being loved in return.

And about being scared of breaking, well, someone who truly loves you, will never break you.

Sometimes, the hardest thing to do, is to let someone love you.

But let it happen.

Let someone special fall in love with you, and make you feel like you’re the single most important person of their world.

And then, try to love them back, and see how your life changes.

Lots of love,

One hundred blog posts!!!

It has taken me a few months more than I had hoped, but this milestone is nonetheless a very significant one!

In the one hundred posts I have written and published, I have only kept in mind the belief, that perhaps, someone will be able to read what I have written and feel less alone and more motivated.

It has been my honest and heartfelt attempt at sharing some happy things in life, while never forgetting to acknowledge that the rainbow doesn’t come without the rain.

Thank you all once again, from the bottom of my heart, for your readership and your support!

Daily Dose of Sunshine, V2.0: Day 8, What We Want To Be

We cannot become what we want by Stardust & Sunlight

It has been said over and over again,

That the only constant is change.

But today what I want to ask you,

Is, what happens when change is consciously made?

Well, when you consciously and mindfully take steps to change, you are working towards evolving yourself into someone better. You have taken your goals in sight, and are walking towards them to become who you want to be.

And to become what you want to be, you cannot remain who you are today.

So, for instance, to become more forgiving, you need to accept your shortcoming of possibly holding a grudge, and work consciously towards learning to forgive someone who has hurt you.

Just remember, I know it is a long journey of change, but it leads you somewhere better. Somewhere more peaceful. Somewhere more content. Somewhere happier.

Lots of love,



Daily Dose of Sunshine, V2.0: Day 7, Strong Alone

Alone by Stardust & Sunlight

It is the most important lessons that are learnt in the hardest way possible.

You can try everything you’ve got- try kindness, try patience, try silence, try wisdom.

But sometimes, with some people and in some situations, it all fails.

But, it is important to not beat yourself up over it!

It is important to realise that your strength and your greatest power lies within you. It is you, and only you, who can hold yourself together when everything else is falling apart.

Remember, hate is easy, but love is extremely, extremely hard.

So find that strength, keep your kindness and your patience, and keep walking ahead, one step at a time.

Lots of love,


Daily Dose of Sunshine, V2.0: Day 6, Light & Darkness

I hope the light finds you by Stardust & Sunlight.jpg

“I hope the light finds you,

Even when all you want to do is to stay in the darkness.”

There are always those days where we wake up, and find ourselves falling in a pit of darkness. Then there are also those nights, where even the darkness doesn’t accept us and we find ourselves lost and lonely.

There are times when all we want to do is, wrap ourselves up, find a hiding spot, and lose ourselves in the dark recesses of our psyche.

Even in those times, I hope you find the light.

I hope you know that the light is there; no matter how dim, it’s there.

Even when you want to isolate yourself in the darkness, I hope you remember to turn on the light.

Lots of love,

And on that day, you will know that it all happened for a reason.

Lots of love,


Daily Dose of Sunshine, V2.0: Day 4, Take A Chance

TAKE THAT CHANCE by Stardust and Sunlight

“If there is even a slight chance at happiness, take that chance. 

Life is too short, 

And happiness too rare.”

I like to believe that life has been designed to be full of opportunities and doors waiting to be opened. Doors that hold something unexpected behind them; sometimes unexpectedly good, and at others, unexpectedly, not so good.

Over the years, if luck has it, we might get dealt more “not so good” cards, and we might become afraid to go near any more opportunities; afraid and terrified of not liking what we get.

But, instinctually, deep down, we know the opportunities which hold an inkling of a promise; a promise of happiness. We know the stakes are high, and something might have to be risked to achieve that happiness.

And that risk terrifies us. 

We convince ourselves that what we have is enough, and we don’t want anymore if it involves a “risk” of any kind.

But, life is really too short, and happiness is really too rare. 

So, if you come across a door, that indicates even the slightest chance of finding happiness, take that chance.

Take the risk, and open that door. 

At the end of the day, what’s the worst that can happen, right?

Lots of love,
