Daily Dose of Sunshine, Day 33: Gratitude

Day 33- gratitude.jpg

“A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles.”

I remember, when we were kids, we were always told to wake up every morning and fall asleep every night with a prayer of gratitude. We were told in school and at home to inculcate the practice of offering thanks to the universe for giving us everything in our lives; the good, the bad, the easy, the hard, the successes and the challenged, for each of them teach us something and make us stronger.

But, I believe that somewhere, we forgot to be grateful. We became so caught up in our “problems”, that we lost sight of all that was good in our lives. We started to build a vision only focusing on what we didn’t have, instead of counting our blessings.

Today, I want to encourage you all to develop once again, the habit of being thankful. Wake up each morning, every single morning, offering your gratitude to the universe. Be thankful for everything that you have, because trust me, the more gratitude you have, the better life becomes. You begin to feel blessed with things and experiences you could have never even dreamt of having, and you begin to attract unforeseen energies of positivity.

If you don’t believe me, try it.

Lots of love,


Daily Dose of Sunshine, Day 32: Love & Magic

Day 32-magic.jpg

When we were younger, we used to dream of becoming witches and wizards, surrounded by magic all around us. Well, most of that credit goes to J. K. Rowling, but nonetheless, everything about magic fascinated us. To be able to conjure something from thin air, to be able to bring to life inanimate objects of desire, to be able to fly as if we had invisible wings to soar up to the sky.

And then somewhere along that road of wanting all those magical things, we grew up.

We grew up hearing about how the world was a big, bad place, where people found joy in hurting others.

Where our parents asked us to become “stronger”, “less emotional”, “tougher”, as if they were good things to be; the only things to be.

Well… I wonder where that got us?

We all fell in and out of love, only realizing the truth of the world, that perhaps, love did leave people only with pain and loss. We were made to believe, over and again, that love was inseparable from grief, and just like that, we became afraid.

We became afraid of falling in love. We became afraid of feeling the magic soaring in our souls, because we were scared that it would leave us empty and broken. And we stopped letting ourselves love…

We forgot along the way that love was all magic, and magic was all love. We forgot, that the only way to conjure a Patronus was to conjure love and happiness. We forgot, that the only way to save someone, is to love them and love them unconditionally. We forgot, that the greatest power in the world is to love and be loved.

We forgot, that love and magic were one.

Lots of love,



Daily Dose of Sunshine, Day 31: The Little Things That Make Life Big

Every time I travel, I realise the value of the small, little things in our life that we take for granted. The smell of good food, the splash of the water from a fountain, the feeling of holding someone’s hand and exploring a new place, the warmth of the hug from someone you haven’t met in a long time, cute little coffee shops, remembering where places are even though you’re a tourist, the joy of buying gifts and the happiness when they are received well, phone calls from friends expressing how much you’re being missed, boarding a plane to go home..

It’s just all there, right there in front of our eyes, but we take it all for granted because we are so focused on the big and the bigger things. Sometimes, we need to stop and just take in all the little blessings of life surrounding us everyday.

Happiness, is usually always hidden in the little things of life. https://stardustandsunlight.com/2017/12/09/happiness-hidden-in-the-little-things/

Daily Dose of Sunshine, Day 30: How Far You’Ve Come

In the midst of self-doubt, insecurities, concerns, expectations and disappointments, we forget to give ourselves credit for just how far we’ve come and just how much we’ve survived.

We’ve managed to survive every single one of our bad days, and today we stand stronger than before, wiser than before, and surely evolving and becoming better everyday.

So when the road ahead seems impossible, look behind and take a moment to acknowledge just how far you’ve come. And appreciate yourself for that. You’ve made it this far, and I’m sure you’ll make it to your next destination too.

Lots of love,


Daily Dose of Sunshine, Day 29: Karma

If you’ve been following my blog recently, you may have observed that a lot of it addresses the angst, the darkness, the pain that people experience in their relationships with the people around them.

But today is different.

Today’s post is for all of those people, who have felt that they were the light, but were plunged into the darkness. Who felt that they were the love, but were pushed head first into the loss. Who felt that they were right and giving, but were wronged by those they trusted.

Today, well, today is for the betrayed.

So, to all of you wronged people out there, I hope this post today gives you the courage to walk away. Walk away, because you can do no more than you have already. Walk away, because you should be done by now. Walk away, because there isn’t anything left for you to do or have now.

Walk away, because now, karma is going to take over for you.

And if you’re lucky, really really lucky, you’ll get to watch.

Lots of love,


Daily Dose of Sunlight, Day 28: Chaos

“People were created to be loved.

Things were created to be used.

The reason why the world is in chaos, is because things are being loved,

And people are being used.”

The saddest truth of our generation.

We have resorted to materialism to the point of destruction. We want to show off things we can’t have, and we are too ashamed to talk about the things that matter.

We want to take advantage of people’s weaknesses, because empowering others poses a threat to our own success?

We wish failure upon others so we can retain our superiority?

So, is it really surprising that the current state of affairs in our world is the way it is?

People aren’t meant to be used.

They’re meant to be loved and cherished.

Lots of love,


Daily Dose of Sunshine, Day 27: Light & Dark

Each one of us, from all parts of the world, across nations and cultures, cities and religions, age and gender, is equal parts Light and Dark. We’re all as good as we are bad.

I assure you, no one is all good or all bad.

Yes, there are some, who have channelled within them more good than the bad, and then there are those who have unfortunately aligned more with the bad than the good.

But even the nicest, kindest, warmest people have their dark sides. Sure, some of them maybe repressed in the depths of their subconscious, but the dark exists. In each one of us.

But the light exists too.

It’s what you choose to act upon that matters. Do you focus on the happy and the abundance, or the melancholy and the missing?

It’s okay if you aren’t sure. It’s okay if you know you’re the latter but can’t admit it. It’s okay either way.


Choose happy.

Choose abundance.

Choose love.

Choose Light.

Lots of love,
