Get over your fears (Blog marathon post 18)




It's the 2nd of January 2016. Have you broken any resolutions yet? Or are you saving that for mid February or March when the steam runs out? :)

I think one of the biggest things that we an do for ourselves this year is to lose our fears. Ask yourself--what is the biggest thing you fear? Is it losing someone you love? Is it fear of public speaking? Is it not having enough money? Is it fear of failure?

Often, when it comes to living life to the fullest, it is our fears that hold us back. We are so afraid to go out there and give whatever we want to do a chance, because we fear the consequences. We fear rejection. We fear ridicule, scorn. We fear change.

But what if you were assured that you would succeed at whatever it is that you want to try but do not have the courage for? What if someone gave you a guarantee that no matter what it is, you wont fail?
What would you do?

Make a list.
Write it down.
Then cross off one off the list each month.

IF you fail, so be it. It is a valuable lesson learnt.
And if you don't it's an even more valuable lesson learnt.
That will make this a SPLENDID year.
 
We can indeed fly, soar and touch the skies.It is only our fears that are holding us back.

ps: if you want to share your list, I am listening. But I have an ulterior motive.
I just might use that in the novel I am writing :) My characters might  live your desires :))

  1. Its all about defeating your fears to achieve your dreams. Robin Sharma said, "To go where your dreams live, explore where your fear lie" This helped me a lot to defeat many fears.
    So nice to hear the same context from my fav author. :)

  4. Nice blog preethi.. :) and it is indeed true that many a times in life fear holds us back in tasting success .. But if we are determined to reach the peak of sucess then the positive energy that we have within ourself will definitely break over the fear.. And fear of losing our loved one's is always the biggest fear to overcome and sad to tell this but i am a victim to it .. :( Apart from this I fear the most for the Society means if I do this and if it doesn't end up right would people talk bad about me ..

  7. it's always a fear of being failing,or what others will say,that keeps us from doing something we want.these things should never matter,instead our priorities should be our happiness

  8. Lovely thoughts and indeed all of us have fear.My greatest fear is change and that often stops me from trying new things and I become complacent and hence shunts my growth too.Hmm u made me think Preeti

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.
