Wish list Wednesday No.4

A very happy new year to you all!
 Hope you have a wonderful, peaceful and a joyous 2013.

Welcome to Wish list Wednesdays.  In case you  are new and do not know what Wishlist Wednesdays are, it is a writing prompt hosted by me, every Wednesday, in association with Westland Books, the publishers of  my new book 'The Secret Wish list' which has been getting some great reviews.

Each wednesday I shall host a writing prompt and you can answer the questions in your blogs or in my comment box. One person wins a copy of the 'The Secret Wish list' which will be mailed to them by Westland.

I have really enjoyed reading all the entries in the previous prompt.
I have also managed to leave comments on many entries. (I might not have been able to leave on some for technical reasons--but I did try).

This time, the winning entry is :

Please send me your postal address and Westland will mail you a copy of the book.

The other two entries which got a special mentions are:


Congrats to all who took part.

The prompt this time is:

I wish everyone loved  ..........................................

  14. I Wish Everyone loved the way everyone wants to be loved. I wish everyone loved the kind of life one is living. I wish everyone loved the numerous blessings one is surrounded with which always go unnoticed. I wish everyone loved to see others being loved. I wish everyone loved to spread a smile on a stranger's face. I wish everyone loved to grow up, to feel the essence of letting go, to acknowledge the cure behind moving on. I so wish everyone loved to care for those who don't care. I wish everyone loved to love without expectations. I wish everyone loved to realise the beauty of nature. I wish everyone loved to be happy for the little things. I wish everyone loved to help a friend in need. I wish everyone loved to listen without judging. I wish everyone loved to light up someone's world. I wish everyone loved to sacrifice for others. I wish everyone loved to lighten the burdens of a heavy heart. I wish everyone loved to respect everyone. I wish everyone loved to do something personal between him and the Creator. I wish everyone loved to see how easy it is to embrace the good things. I wish everyone loved to eradicate evil from the world. I wish everyone loved to be secular. I wish everyone loved to love the not so lovely things of the world.. And I wish, I so wish everyone loved to express gratitude without expecting others to return the favours. I just wish everyone loved to see the world in a simple, uncomplicated, natural way! :) :)

Life is so unpredictable. Stop judging! #Sridevi

This morning I woke up to the news of the legendary Sridevi, being no more at 54. I have grown up watching her movies. She is a tremendously talented actor.

I have been reading so many write-ups about her. There are whatsapp forwards, blog posts, news reports, status updates and so much more.

What I do not understand is how people comment on her personal life. They have watched her movies, or met her at an event, or know her through 'friends of friends' etc. They talk about how she 'tried to hold on to her beauty', how she went under the scalpel, how she was stressed etc etc.
Everything about her is open game --no matter what the truth is.

I am saddened reading these discussions.

I lost my father to a cardiac arrest. He was healthy,  fit as a fiddle, had none of the age related ailments and looked so much younger for his years. He had twice the energy of someone half his age. Even on the day he passed away, he had gone for his usual 6 km walk. He was just 66.  It was…

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…


Be that man Who looks his woman in the eye when he gets home And says ‘You look beautiful, darling.’ And means it. Because this thing you have going is Sacred
Be that man Who offers his woman a back rub, a glass of wine Or coffee Or simply some time and space Where she can be herself. Because this thing you have going is Sacred

Be that man Who doesn’t make jokes about his woman, behind her back Because she is too precious, too dear Some things you do not joke about Because this thing you have going is Sacred.
Be that man Who would drop everything in a jiffy to be beside her Not because she cannot manage But because you know how much she hates to do it all by herself Tell her she is strong and brave, And hold her hand Because this thing you have going is Sacred ______________________ **************© 2018 Preeti ShenoyFor more poems click here.
