Making wishes come true (blog marathon post 21)




Life will not always go the way you want it to. If it did, it would be a car, not life. And even cars crash, get deflated tyres, run out of fuel, need maintenance.

Of late I have been thinking about what is it that keeps one going? For some it is the anticipation of a better future. (If I study hard and top my exams, then I will get into so-and-so college and life will be all good). For some it is the anticipation of an immediate result or a result in the near future. (If I get that promotion and get a pay-hike of x percent, my life will be all set). For some it is the search for that perfect person to share their lives with. (Psst--let me tell you a secret--the 'perfect person' doesn't exist). For others, it might be an event that they are looking forward to. (An old couple eagerly awaits the arrival of their adult son and his family who will be visiting them soon).

Whatever it is, all of us have some hopes, aspirations, dreams, goals. I had read somewhere that a goal is a dream with a deadline. How true that is.

Whatever it is that you dream of, desperately want---write it down. Stick it on your desk if you must. Take five minutes off. Visualise it happening. put your thoughts and energy into it every single day.
Even if you do not do anything consciously about it, think about it and keep it somewhere at the back of your mind, where you take it out every single day. And hold on to it.

Gradually your mind will start working towards achieving it.

This is what happened to my protagonist Diksha in The Secret Wishlist 
(incidentally it is selling at just Rs.88/- for a limited period)

I do believe that when you wish it, and write it down and think about it, you subconsciuosly work to make it happen.
And your wishes come true, like magic. (Yes, Rhonda Byrne is right).

Wishing you tonnes of luck in achieving yours!

  3. My dad always tells this. What ever you want or dream for: think of it, speak out loud once in day, write it down. While doing this, you automatically put your efforts in achieving your goal, wish, dreams..!!! :)

  10. Certainly true !! It is our dreams, aspirations and infact I should say our hopes which take us forward. Had there been no hope and belief, the world would have come to a halt. Sometimes life takes a U turn. But then that is why it called life. Life is really mysterious. Many a time, it becomes difficult to figure out why did it happen. If you have hope, you would never utter the word nope. So,if you who really visualises your dreams, you will surely make them happen sooner or later.
    But the condition required is that one will have to believe beyond imagination. Then only dreams will turn into reality and then people would call something known as Miracles !!

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.
