Together we can be alright. Post 10



Today has been a rough day for me. When I have had a rough day, I usually call up or text my friends. But I do not tell them about my day or how things are going wrong for me, at the moment. I see no point in that. Instead we talk about other things--either about some happy thing which is happening in their lives or some old memory and we laugh. That cheers me up too and things do not look at bad as before. But when I called up a good friend today, I felt even more down as things were going horribly wrong in my friend's life as well and there are no easy solutions.

So imagine my delight  when I read a totally  unxepected text from another good friend which said 

Cause I've been there before
And you've been there before
But together we can be alright.
Cause when it gets dark and when it gets cold
We can just hold eachother till we see the sunlight
 I am embedding the song above.

I texted back saying "How did you know I had a rough day?"
Pat comes the reply " Real friends always know everything about each other :-) "

Thank Lord for real friends! When I count my blessings, I count them twice.
May they never change and may they always stay around to be the rainbow, after the rain.

Love and friendship do have a power.

  4. Friendship is a very very powerful thing. And I think in true friendships, there is something like telepathy as well :)

    Hi Preeti,

    It did happen to me many times, when I am low and wanted to speak to my husband, and I pick my phone and I get a call from him. It happened to him as well..friendship and love is great to keep us going.

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.






2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer



3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg





 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng








5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin


7. The Little Prince:  Antoine de saint exupĂ©ry

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.





You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…

This is how I welcome the new year

Happy happy happy new year folks!!! As I type this, I can hear loud party noises and fire crackers all around.
I dislike parties. I prefer being in a quiet atmosphere with my loved ones, doing something meaningful together.
We always light the lamp at midnight. It's a family tradition. You can see the lamp in the first picture, and my altar, illuminated by the brightness of the lamp in the second.

We thank the universe for ALL the blessings bestowed upon us.
And we welcome the new year with prayers and gratitude.


With this I come to the end of my blog marathon. 31 days, and I have given you all 31 posts!
Leave me comments. I love to hear from you.

 Happy New Year once again. May all your dreams come true.
