A love letter straight from the heart :)

My dearest darling,
 
Even though I have my family (my husband, my two children and my dog!) I still need you as much as I need them.
  
I am so glad you are in my life. I am so happy we found each other. I feel so blessed to have you through all my ups and downs.
You have  given me so much love. You have helped me grow.
You have taken me places. You really have you know.

You listen so patiently when I have something to say--and so I am drawn toward you. And while we see others parting ways,  you and I have lasted 5 years, eight months and five days.  And we're still going strong. Aren't we awesome? I must say it is largely because of you.

No matter what I am going through you always understand. You are patient when i have nothing to say. And you are so darn receptive when I do!

 And so there are these phases or days that I go through when more begets more. I get into these 'very productive' days (like today which is a super writing day for me as I wrote 3100 words for my fourth book which I am currently working on) when I write and write. And then I want to write some more.

And you understand!

No matter how many ever days I take to get back to you, you still wait patiently and you are happy to see me.

What a sweetheart you are. You change according to my needs. You are forever obliging. Sometimes I neglect you, I am mean to you.  Sometimes I don't even look at you for weeks.  Yet you never complain.
 
 
I feel guilty now. I promise you you will see a lot more of me.

 I will make time for you.

You deserve it.

I love you so much, my blog :) :-*

Much love!

Preeti

  14. Preeti, I've been following your blog for the past one month. Frankly speaking your posts has a magical effect on me. I am a kind of person, who tend to break down easily on simple things that brings disappointment in life .After reading your posts I can realize the change in me..These days,I always try to be happy and keep my surroundings happy.I am yet to read your books this week:-)Thanks a million!:-)

  15. Dear 173.194.35.12

    Have you gone all awwww thanks to this lovey dovey letter from this lady. Hate to prick your bubble, but think again. See she is still not including you in her family list. She keeps abandoning you for prettier folks (otherwise called books). She keeps giving you a makeover every once in a while, as if she's bored with how you look. She even changed your name (Grrrrrr).

    Not to worry, lovey girl. We all still love you. So what if this lady is chasing prettier tails. To us, you will always be THE ONE. You don't need to serve a cup of tea or a piece of cake to entice us. We look at you all the time. We are besotted with you. We suffer from withdrawal symptoms if you don't reveal your pretty self every day.


    So say boo to this lady and come and embrace us, OK.

    Yours lovingly
    Fan of 173.194.35.12

  17. hi preeti u r awesome with u r articles as u describes .....
    friendship , i mean friendship as THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FRIENDS SHOULD BE LIKE FISH AND WATER BUT NOT LIKE A FISH AND FISHERMAN"
    while it is cant buy for money in the world. some lines for friends and friendship

    You meet people who forget you. You
    forget people you meet. But sometimes you meet those people you can't
    forget. Those are your 'friends.'”

    “A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.”

    A
    friend is a hand that is always holding yours, no matter how close or
    far apart you may be. A friend is someone who is always there
    and will always, always care. A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.”

    “true friendship isn't about being there when it's convenient; it's about being there when it's not.”

    “Best friends are the ones who can be the farthest away but there the fastest when you call.”

    Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.”
    these lines i follows
    thanking u

  20. Innovative ways of gifting has gathered at www.rakhiworldwide.com/rakhigifts/send_rakhi_to_Delhi.asp for the forthcoming Rakshabandhan festival. The gifts carry the message that the siblings wish to communicate. It's the emotions that do the communication, only to make one realize the value of the other to each other.

Hello!

A bit  of news I have is this FUN and EASY contest that we are running, where two winners will be flown to Mumbai to attend Women Writers Fest  (click on link to know all details) with me ! We will also take care of the hotel stay for a night.  And ALL participants will get an assured surprise in their inbox on 28th Feb!  We started it today, and it goes on till 25th feb.
Isn't this Fabulous? I am very excited about it!

What do you have to do to enter?




Simple--Share a pic with 'Life is What You Make it' and post it  on YOUR social media (blog, facebook, Twitter, Instagram--anything you like and use the hashtag #LifeWithPreeti so we find it. Also set your account to public! Please make it a post (as stories disappear in 24 hours)
We have already started receiving pictures from as far as Kedarkanth. I am absolutely loving it, and it is so moving and wonderful to see all the pictures.


I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following 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…

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchanges.

 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
