Sparkle #206: Carpe Diem!

Hello everyone, how is it going? I am really feeling the Monday morning blues today – this week has not even started and so many to-do’s and action items are already piled up! It is definitely going to be a busy week ahead. I am so consumed with work, that I am unable to write something meaningful or inspirational for the Monday post. Thankfully, this amazing comic came to my rescue – it pretty much sums up what I am feeling. Here’s some food for thought as you start your Monday – hope we all have a productive week ahead!…

Sparkle #204: Spring has Sprung!

Hello beautiful people, are you ready for spring? I know I am! Today is the Spring Equinox, which marks the beginning of spring across the world. Today is one of the only two days in the year when the day and night are equal in length and perfectly in balance! Coincidentally, today is also the International Day of Happiness and the start of the Persian New Year. Which in my mind is kind of perfect, because how can one feel anything but happy on a balmy spring day in March? I am always on the lookout for special rituals that one can create to…

Sparkle #203: Hey 2017 – Let’s Do This!

Happy 2017 to all you happy, shiny people! There’s something about 2017 that’s got me all excited and optimistic – this year feels like it’s going to be magical. Or maybe this is just the hope that kicks in with the start of a new year talking. 365 days, 52 weeks and 12 splendid months which we can fill with fresh moments and new stories. So let’s go all out this year and make lots of magical memories. Every year in January, I do a post on new year resolutions (2015, 2016) or share printables (2015, 2016) which could help us plan better for the year ahead.…

Sparkle #202: Count your Blessings!

Hello happy, shiny folks! How has November been for you so far? I cannot believe 2016 is coming to a close, this year seems to have gone by in the blink of an eye! As the Thanksgiving weekend dawns upon us, I cannot help but feel reflective and grateful for the past year. There are always two sides to any situation, and happy people tend to look on the bright side. 2016 has been a rocky ride for sure, but today when I look back, I only want to count my blessings and forget the rest. So instead of feeling sad that I didn’t…

Sparkle #199: Challenge Yourself to be “Complaint-free”

Happy Monday people! I have been so bad with the blog this year, and I am very disappointed for not putting in more time on my site. Without giving long explanations, let me just admit that the first half of 2016 went by in the blink of an eye. It’s already August, so perhaps this week and next I should slow down and check in on what I have been up to this year. I often wonder if I am being busy or productive, but I think I am too scared to really find that out! Let’s come back to August and the start of…
