Recharge your soul.

No matter how old you are, no matter what you do for a living, no matter what place you are in, right now, I am sure you have that little problem, that little thing which needs to be taken care of, that small (or big) problem which needs to be sorted. Sometimes, we get so busy focussing on doing that we forget on just being. Sometimes we get so caught up in the journey and  reaching the final destination that we forget that the journey and how one enjoys it, is what matters more than the destination.

Life always throws us challenges. Just when we think we have it all figured out-- POW, there comes a knock and you don't know what hit you. Sometimes, there is no time even duck.

We all need a little special something, every now and then, to keep us going. We need that little pampering. We need that time out. We need to recharge our souls with what makes us truly happy. We owe it to ourselves. Only if you are happy, will you make your loved ones happy. If you are empty within, you have no love to give. Like my friend Gillian says "Everybody needs a cup of love, every single day:".

One of the things that makes me truly happy is being with Nature. The other is being with friends who are radiators of positive vibes and who being you joy. So it was a double treat for me when Tony, a friend of mine (an amazing person and a great guy) , took me to Fairhaven  (the website describes it as woodland and  water garden, a secret hideaway waiting to be discovered) and spent the day with me.

We talked, laughed and felt recharged. It was food for our souls.

It was magical.
Thank you Tony!

I am sharing some memories here with you and I know you will like looking at these pictures.(and hopefully they will recharge your soul too or at least transport you for a few moments to a magical place?)

I wish you peace and tranquillity in your life.

  8. Hi Preeti,

    Indeed its a nice calm place to visit and let yourself recharge, re-energize and start again.

    The most interesting is of the bench where you can spend endless time and patiently see how calmly water is moving..

    Cheers and have a nice rest of the week ahead.

    Cheers,
    Anish

  17. That's why I travel to the countryside a lot - to recharge my batteries and pamper myself a little. A nice B&B, a bottle of wine, a spa or a wood fire - all do wonders for the inner me.

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 …
