Blog marathon post 29. More cards and where to find creativity

Today was a great day in terms of my cards. Like i have said before, I make these cards, in between my writing. I find it an amazing way to de-stress. Today I sold six cards, and one of them was custom made, with a personalized quilled name of the future recipient. I feel wonderful about being appreciated for the cards I make.

Here are a few latest ones.

People often ask me how can they find creativity and inspiration? My answer can be simplified into  a few points which I think are important for creativity and inspiration:

1. Do nothing!  Lie outdoors on the grass (if possible) for a while. Do nothing. Tune off every electonic device you own. Just lie there and gaze at the sky and observe your thoughts. Don't fight them--just observe them. You will be amazed at what you hear, when you listen to yourself!

2. Exercise. This stimulates the brain cells like anything, It wakes you out of lethargy. It';s a boost for your brain.

3. Do one thing which you have never done before. Stretch yourselves. At least once in three days do something you have never done before. It need not be grand. It can be something as simple as smiling at next door neighbour whom you have never spoken to. But do that one thing which will shake you up completely out  of the comfort zone you cocoon yourself in.

4: Dance: yes! Put on some music that is peppy and makes you want to dance. Then do it!

5. Look at new stuff in your line of Interest. See Pinterest,. Explore, discover, learn. Internet is an amazing resource, Use it right!

Hope the above things help! They sure help me!

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

Right on top?) to get my posts right in your, inbox.


A lot of people tell me that they wait for my blog marathon. They write in and tell me that whenever I start my blog marathon, they start their day by reading my posts.


Thank you so much for that! A request--please do leave me comments, so that I know you have read it. Else it feels like I am talking to a wall :)  I will definitely try and reply to all the comments left in my comment box.
