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.

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

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. :)
