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!

  7. 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!

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…

Are you guilty of this? #AHundredLittleFlames (post 4)

Hi there,
Hope you had a great Diwali!
For those who joined me late, I am doing a  hundred little blog posts to celebrate  my new book A Hundred Little Flames.

This means a new little blog post every day, till I reach a 100 :)
Today is day 4.

Sometimes, couples in love forget about everyone around them. They don't care what others think or feel, as they are so engrossed in each other, and their happiness. They also think that theirs is the greatest and the best love-story. They may not mean to do it. But they do so inadvertently.
Ayan finds it annoying.

Do you know any such couples? Has anyone you know acted that way?

Tell me in comments!
A new post tomorrow.
Love
Preeti
