Five rules to get over someone

Rule no.1: Move on (and while you are at it, cultivating a new hobby which you are really passionate about helps)

Rule no.2 : Move on. (and while you are at it, making a brand new friend helps)

Rule no. 3: Move on. (and while you are at it reading A LOT helps. Don't allow the mind to be idle for even five seconds, lest it goes racing to depressing thoughts. Use the time to read good books. There is so much waiting to be learnt in them, especially on heartbreaks ;-) )

Rule no.4 : Move on (and while you are at it find one thing to do in the day, which gives you immense joy)

Rule no.5 :Move on  (and if you have been doing the 'while you're at it stuff' you don't need this rule as you would have already moved on)

Good luck!

(accept it hurts and sometimes, it is indeed okay to hurt. We all go through it and emerge stronger and meet someone better eventually, though at the time of going through it, it definitely does not seem so)

  1. Well written...and an apt message!

  2. Simple and true! :-) the absolute necessity is to move on. Nicely put Preeti! As always:-)

  3. Liked it. Loved it. Shared it. And I'm sure to implement the rules. Thank you for sharing. :)

  4. A much needed message especially for today's teens.

  5. I second all the rules. :) Implementation starts from today!

  6. Ma'am,I've read many of your posts and each one comes up with something unique in itself.I really enjoy reading your blog. Keep writing!:)

  7. loved it.... moving on ;)!

  8. Yes, I agree with you. I moved on something ( not someone ) just be letting all my tears out and till I was not left with one drop, and was on finding new job again,

    I moved on making brand new novels as my best friends,

    I moved on by cultivating cooking as my hobby by making delicious cuisines for family,

    I moved on by engaging myself doing some or the other thing at home, changed the look of my mom's kitchen ( it helped a lot of her energy while finding things)

    Now I even forgot that SOMETHING has ever happened to me. And I am just moving on with a wide smile ;)

    Thanks for this post! Like always boosted me even more. :)

  9. Ooooo! I love this! And I read it at an apt timing too!


  10. Methinks the shortest n most effective way of getting over someone is by getting into a rebound relationship... it's short, sweet and so totally worth it.. :D

    been working for me since '87.. big fan of it :)

Daughters are so special. Post 3

Hello dear friend :)

This is my third post in this blog marathon. Those of you who are  here because of my Instagram post do hit subscribe that you see on top of this page, and you will receive my posts in your inbox.

Writing this like a letter, feels very nice. It is as though I am pulling up a chair, sitting down in front of you and having a chat with you. I read all your comments in my last two posts, and I have replied too! I think that is the nice part about blogging--that we can connect one-on-one, through our words.

Today, I went out with my daughter, and we had an amazing time.When she and I go out, I always drive my car and she plays her choice of music. It's a girls trip, and we cherish this time that we spend together. (you can see stories of our day on my Instagram handle)

I come from a family and background, where women never worked or drove a car. My mother has never worked, neither had my grandmother nor had my great-grandmother. None of my aunts-- either on my m…

A few books I LOVED reading this year. Post 13

Hello there,

It has been twelve whole days since I started my blog marathon. Time has sped by so fast. In fact, the whole year has sped by so fast. It feels like just yesterday that I was preparing my 'reading wall' which I do a the start of the year. I started this two years ago.
If you want to know what a reading wall is, clickHERE.

It's basically a list of books that I read the entire year.

Many of you have been asking me to recommend the 'best books'. I am reluctant to do so, because tastes vary. It is like  person asking me to  recommend what they should eat. The recommendation would  depend on whether they like South-Indian, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese , Singaporean or any other specific cuisine. It would be meaningless to recommend Idlis to someone  who hates South Indian food.

This is the reason I do not recommend books. My tastes tend to be eclectic. What is outstanding for me might me egregious for you. So, unless I know the person very well, I …

A quick and easy DIY for clearing charger clutter. Post 4


How are you doing today?

The one thing I dislike very much is clutter. Clutter bothers me, and messes with my mind. I am a huge fan of the Konmari method. If you do not know what that is, and you want to get rid of clutter in your life,  do read Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying. I highly recommend it.

Here's what I did today.

Neat, isn't it?

It isn't hard at all. I made it myself. This is how I did it.

Step 1: Find a suitable box. I used an amazon box.

Step 2: Make a neat slit in the side.

Step 3: Place your extenion plug inside the box, and take out the wires through the slit.

Step 4: Decorate the box! I used washi tape for the edges to make them neat.

And oh--I also made extra hole for the phone charger wires to come out.

Since that side is against the wall, I didn't bother to decorate it, as it is hidden.

I was mighty pleased with it. :)
