Love & Luck in 2019

Read my post title again. Sounds too generic? But in reality, I actually put a lot of thought into this. Read on to know how. Last week the world celebrated the Chinese New Year, and the coming week is when everyone will be busy with Valentine’s Day preparations (you can love it or hate it, but you can’t ignore it!). Given that I am just getting back to my writing routine, I missed the bus on writing a New Year’s post, and am delayed getting my annual Valentine’s post out (check out previous V-Day posts below). So I decided to…

You Are Enough!

Hello all you sparkly people and warm wishes for a wonderful 2019 filled with much love and light! I am already getting good vibes from this year, specially because am starting it on such a positive note – coming back to writing and my blog! For those of you who follow me religiously and for those who stumbled upon this space by chance, you would have noticed that I took a break from writing around 2 years ago. The last couple of months have been packed with action – lots of soul searching, losing and finding myself, professional and personal…

Taking a Break – Will be back Super Soon!

Hello happy, shiny people! Hope 2017 is treating you well. As you all would have already noticed, I have been spending lesser and lesser time on my blog this year. I am not going to make any excuses around lack of time or ideas, and just be honest about my absence. This year, I have not had the mind space to be fully devoted to my blog, and since I hate putting out anything which is done halfheartedly, I have had long gaps between published posts. I have been struggling with my writing for a while now and seem to be…

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…
