#QOTD #68: You are magic!

How many times have we wished we were other people, living in another city/ country; working our dream jobs, doing different things and being happy?

How many times have we wished a moment, opportunity or event away?

I’m not one for star signs but I’ve read a couple. Being a piscean, the stars deem us as day dreamers. We apparently live in fantasy worlds…

I can’t say that they’re entirely wrong, because I always envision myself at the end of a goal I’d wanna achieve. I think of things that have never happened that I’d like to happen and envision the beautiful and in most cases, cliched endings.

There’s nothing wrong with this provided that it doesn’t consume you and wastes times.

I’ve learnt along the way that there is no perfect life or job. You can’t choose your family and the people you work with will always be. Ive learnt that the grass is only greener on the other side because it is well maintained and not coz the weather is better or there’s something different in the water.

I’ve also learnt that there is no place like home and you literally have the choice to make the best of what you have, when you have it, wherever you have it and with whom you have it.

I came across this quote and boy did it remind me of a lot and put so much into perspective.

It says

” Bloom wherever you’re planted”

Be you wherever life takes you. Bloom and shine like the star that you are. Far too often we feel like we need to conform. Like we’re inadequate. We feel like we’re not good enough and then mimic ridiculous behavior.

It’s okay to dream, it’s okay to envision but not at the expense of you dulling your own sparkle.

It needs to stop. Now.

Be authentic, be-YOU-titul and bloom wherever you’re planted; in school, at that call centre you working at, in retail, at court, on a field, in the board room, heck just bloom.

I cannot stress the importance of learning to love yourself so that you know your capabilities, and then become comfortable enough with them.

Ya dig?

#QOTD #34

This quote is one that I make conscious effort to live by. It’s the one quote I often use when I’m feeling down and even when I’m feeling like I’m ontop of the 🌎.

It actually comes from one of my all time fav fairytales!


And it goes: 

Have courage and be kind.

~ Cinderella

How beautiful. Short and sweet!

Being courageous does not mean you have to be mean, disrespectful or proud. 

To have courage and also to maintain humility and kindness for me, is something so beautiful and can sometimes be so difficult to get the both right. Hence the beauty. 

Once you find the balance, Only then I say, can you shout out loud: MAMA I MADE IT! 

Have courage to work through the tough times and lows that life can sometimes throw and then be kind enough to share the little you have, even when being kind seems like the hardest to do. Kind enough even when you have everything that your heart desires.

I simply love it ♥️

Come, Let’s all

#QOTD #9

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Not that screaming , irate client on the other side of the line.

Not that picture perfect model on the cover of the most popular magazine.

Not that popular girl or captain of the football team.

Not even that bully in school or the most intelligent person in your class/ team.

… can make you feel inferior without your consent. You possess power, use it wisely:

You have the power to not be changed by what people do and have the power to choose how you will react to any situation.

Think of yourself how you would want others to think of you. 

That’s right! It starts with you. 

As I always say, we are kings and queens in our own right.


Happy CHOOSEday everybody.

Well wishes and seed planting by just an ordinary girl !

Quote of the day #QOTD #1

It is undoubtedly amazing how your day can take direction by just reading ONE positive thought in the morning. I stand testament to that. 

I’ve decided to share a/the quote that inspired me for the day in hope that it may help / inspire somebody else out there 

Today’s quote 

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

~ The oh-so-amazing Maya Angelou. 


Gratitude is better than regret. Share a positive thought with a special or random person; be it that you adore their smile, are inspired by their work ethic or just thankful for all that they do.

If how a person feels is lasting, let’s try to make that lasting feeling a warm, fuzzy and happy one 😊

Let’s go (: 

A blessed day to you all.
