Day 4. Seven days of positivity!

Day 4 of the Positivity experiment.  and the results have been truly surprising.
It is such a simple (but difficult) thing yet, it works like magic. I am not the only one saying it. So many people have started doing this now and are all feeling great.

Here is my list of five things that made me feel good today.


 1. Ruchira of Nirjharini today wrote on my Facebook wall. She said

7 days of positivity concept is spreading like wildfire !  I have friends here on facebook or otherwise trying it out. Kudos to you for thinking it up !


2.  Her comment led to me think that a Facebook page to give it a permanent home would be nice. This is so that it can be a 'place of positivity'. Instead of just writing in my comment box, or on individual blogs, people can share their thoughts on this page. Positivity multiplies. So if you want to still keep the positivity going you can join this page. Here is the link:

I do feel happy about creating this group :-)

3. Addy to whom I had sent a handmade card  (as he happened to be thee 300th follower of my blog ) was delighted to get it. He totally loved it and this is what he said on my Facebook wall.

The great card sits proudly on my CPU (the desk is too messed up to keep there) and there have been compliments pouring from all around.....you make awesome cards! Thanks again! :)

I felt good about this.

4. A delightful bit of news is that my very good friend Niall Young  and I have planned a meeting. He is  very likely to come over and stay with me towards the end of August. Yay! I am really really looking forward to this as much as he is. I am a HUGE fan of Niall's work. He is absolutely brilliant. I have raved about him many times on my blog. I have four of Niall's art work in my bedroom. I am one of the very very few privileged people to whom he has gifted an original picture of his and i truly treasure it. (His pictures take more than 150 hours to make as he is a Hyper-pointillist. He uses millions of tiny dots to create the most amazing pictures which are almost like photos). Apart from being an outstanding artist he is a great friend too. I feel so grateful to have him in my life.

 

5. Two of my children's best friends have come for a sleepover. They are siblings.The older one is my son's age and the girl is my daughter's. So the two sets of siblings are having a terrific time right now and the house is filled with happy sounds of children's laughter as I type this. I can't help reflecting that love and friendship knows no geographical boundaries as their friends are English, from a completely different culture, look so different from my children,  yet they are so comfortable with each other. I am grateful for having two wonderful children and doubly grateful they have such good friends.

When I started this experiment, I wasn't really sure it would work.

I am amazed that the simple act of writing down 5 things you are grateful for can make such a big difference!

Try it and you will see why I am emphasising it over and over!

  11. It's a great idea. I guess it works on the principal of one positive thought attracting another leading to a snowball effect, thereby radically improving your mood :)

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…

Are you guilty of this? #AHundredLittleFlames (post 4)

Hi there,
Hope you had a great Diwali!
For those who joined me late, I am doing a  hundred little blog posts to celebrate  my new book A Hundred Little Flames.

This means a new little blog post every day, till I reach a 100 :)
Today is day 4.

Sometimes, couples in love forget about everyone around them. They don't care what others think or feel, as they are so engrossed in each other, and their happiness. They also think that theirs is the greatest and the best love-story. They may not mean to do it. But they do so inadvertently.
Ayan finds it annoying.

Do you know any such couples? Has anyone you know acted that way?

Tell me in comments!
A new post tomorrow.
Love
Preeti
