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 !!

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

Hello!

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. :)
