The alphabet Meme

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Found this really interesting and insightful meme at Blue’s.

This was so different from the usual memes and this tells so much about the person doing it, that I decided to do it.(I always fall for things that make me think, introspect and ruminate) Here it is.

Rule 1: Without changing the first word, after each letter of the alphabet, write a sentence that captures you/your essence.
Rule 2: Tag as many people as you want, but do tag at least one. This is an eye opening experience and can express to those who read it, things about you that they did not really understand before.
Rule 3: List who you are tagging.

I have no idea why the word after G is ‘leave’ But I decided to let it GO and not change it.I also do not know why Y is missing but I let that go as well! :-)

*A* Accept that not everyone is going to like you or appreciate you, no matter what you do
*B* Break. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!
*C* Create a wealth of true friends
*D* Decide that you will listen to your inner voice
*E* Explore all possibilities in a given situation.
*F*Forgive but do not forget. It makes you wiser.
*G* Leave things that do not need fixing alone!
*H* Hope is the greatest driving force.
*I* Ignore those who say that you cannot do it.
*J* Journey is sometimes better than the destination
*K* Know yourself inside out. It helps you in knowing others!
*L* Love lasts forever and ever—Only the partner changes! LOL.
*M*Manage changes. They are the only permanent things.
*N*Notice one good thing about the person next to you right now and SAY it to them.
*O* Open your hearts and minds and think of others for a little while.
*P* Play a sport regularly.
*Q* Question anything negative that you hear about others—and dismiss it immediately.
*R* Relax –Its so important to preserve your sanity!
*S* Share a smile.It changes everything.
*T* Try to see things from the other person’s perspective.
*U* Use your brain.Think!
*V* Value people who love you truely.
*W* Work hard.It eventually pays off.
*X* X-ray your innermost thoughts and get a positive picture.
*Z* Zoom up above into space and we realize how insignificant we really are!

I tag everyone on my blogroll on the right side of this page( If you feel like it, that is! It is fun!)If anyone else wants to do it, please let me know--I'll be sure to come and read it.
*************************************************************
After I published this post, my friend Guto (see comment box) wrote and gave me the missing alphabets.So those doing the tag can add these
*B*-Break away from convention.Normal is boring!
*G* - Grow in thoughts and good deeds.
*Y *- Yield to laughter.Nothing rejuvenates you more and keeps you young!

Thank you Guto!!

  5. Hi, I found this game elsewhere, and it seems to be in the original form. The differences are:

    B - Break Away
    G - Grow
    Y - Yield

    Maybe your tagged friends should follow the above version?

    BTW, I liked your "F" answer, so true.

  15. I may just do this meme but I warn you now that some of my answers will be very similar to yours!

    Your 'zoom' one reminds me of a past post of yours where a picture kept expanding out each time you clicked on it. It really does give a sense of proportion and ones place in things. On the one hand no-one is the centre of the universe, on the other hand, we all have our place in it :)

  16. Thank GOD your blogroll is not arranged alphabetically, as is the meme. I think this cancels me out.

  17. This is so good. I would love to take up the challenge too if you don't mind. Have to leave it till next week though. Have a nice day.

    ReplyDelete
  18. P.S. I loved this! Great for doing it. I love reading the answers others come up with. I have been out of blogging for a day or two since my wee travels. I will go back to see if I missed anything.
    You are a wise woman. And one I wouldn't want to cross! I think you must not suffer fools gladly.
    I like that!

Latest book from Preeti Shenoy: Wake Up Life is Calling. Watch the trailer HERE

Hi!

How have you been?

There are just 14 days left for the release of my new book Wake Up, Life is Calling. The trailer above tells you in brief about the book. Do watch it!


The story starts where Life is What You Make it ends, when Ankita fights her way out of a mental hospital and emerges successful. I had researched a lot for writing it. It was a very hard book to write and it took a lot out of me. I never thought I would come back to write a sequel. But, the character was not done with me yet!
Eight years later, (and nine more books in those eight years!) here I am, coming back to Ankita’s story. Though the first book ends with an epilogue, which tells the reader what happened fifteen years later, there are no details of how Ankita coped. How did she integrate back into daily life? Wake Up, Life is Calling is the sequel, which reveals this. It is about all that Ankita went through when she came out of the mental hospital and went back to college. Would the disorder strike again? What d…

Why I believe in book marketing and a mini-painting giveaway

Hello!
How have you been doing? How is the summer treating you? :)

I am exhausted most of the time. I am not sure if it is because of the very hectic  promos (Oh, I have been working so so  hard!)  of my new book Wake Up Life is Calling (a sequel to Life is What you make it) or whether it is the heat which is sapping  me.



When it comes to book marketing--there are two schools of thought. Some writers believe that the  marketing is not their job. They believe that their job ends when they send off the manuscript after the final  the edits. They think it is primarily the publisher's responsibility.

Marketing is indeed hard work and most writers (including me) detest it. If you ask me, I would rather sit in my cocoon and start writing my next book. (as that is what I enjoy most)

But here's why I do it.

1. Being on the bestseller charts does matter to me. Now while content is the single most important thing, good content alone won't help. Marketing is essential. My book Life …
