Go, manufacture some happiness!! (blog marathon post 23)


So I shared the above photo from Inkology  today on my Facebook. The last I checked the abov picture had got 24,000 shares! Which means it has struck a deep chord with  most people.

When we spend time with people we love, there are chemical changes that happen in the brain. Our bodies release Oxytocin --feel-good-hormone. When we are in love too, our bodies release vast amounts of oxytocin.  From a purely Darwinian point of view, this occurrence has evolved over the years as we need to bond for the survival of the species.

I have just had my one hour dose of oxytocin just now. Had a long long conversation with someone I totally love. And I am going to be seeing him tomorrow after two whole weeks of missing him.
I am waiting. :)
And so is my husband :)

No--am not going to tell you who he is. But he is someone special.

Hope you got your daily dose of happiness today. If you didn't just call up that person you love. Forget 'whose turn' it is to call. Have a nice conversation with them. Call up your parents. Call up your grand-parents if you are fortunate enough to have them.

Go spread some oxytocin around.
The World needs happiness--and yes, you can help manufacture some :)

  6. You are awesome Preeti!! Life is all about accepting differences and let go off the old frays, petty fights, cold wars and grudges. As rightly said "Pain is inevitable but suffering is optional", we must learn to embrace the difference and accept the people and their individuality. Of late in this dogmatic world, people often forget the basic fundas of life and you promptly remind people of how important relationships are.

    Your family and friends must be loving you so much and feeling blessed. Love you!

    It's amazing Preeti. On Wednesday, a friend called me for my birthday from Pune and we spoke lot about career, life and it was a quality conversation. It just pep up life, more meaningful than FB likes or comments. Somehow, we need to get out of our FB mould and be real.

  8. Ten minutes can seem like ten hours whenever we speak to someone who we haven't in a very very long time. But after hanging up, we feel so special that we made time and called that one special person who really makes our life worthwhile.

    The image is too cute. Thanks for posting!

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

A nameless relationship--a short story by Preeti Shenoy.

Today---just a photo for you.

This picture was clicked a little while ago. I posted it on my Instagram  with the caption:
Hang on to everything that makes you feel good ! Hold tight and do not let go. Especially true friendships. <3 I am blessed to have some great friends in my life, and that reflects in all my books, all my writing. My novels are mostly heart-warming and always look at the bright side of life.

But what a lot of people do not know is that I write very dark short stories.


One of my short stories has just released.
You can get it here:  http://amzn.to/2osqRam

(It's not an e-book..It is a short story and it is available only on Kindle. You can download the Kindle app if you do not own a Kindle)

That's all for today.
New post tomorrow.
