Friends who get you (blog marathon post 10)

There's magic which happens when you connect with people of the same wave-length. People who get you. Understand you. You feel 'one of a tribe'. You feel appreciated, validated, most importantly simply understood.

It is a rare thing. You might have a best friend whose life is completely different from yours. Sure, they may give you a patient hearing, they may give you encouragement, they may be there for you when you need them. But when it comes to your work, and something that means a lot to you, they just might not 'get you' , as they have never experienced what you are going through. Their journeys and their paths have been different.


I met and connected with my friends today, after my meetings. It was rejuvenating, refreshing, energising.

My hotel room, is done up BEAUTIFULLY. Each room has a different theme, and mine is done up in a peacock theme, with cerulean blue and gold. There is a FABULOUS painting that adorns a wall, little detailing, hand crafted mirrors that hang from the main mirror in a wrought iron frame, a bunch of flowers, books on  aatma sutra, karmic connections and many such interesting things. The room is so beautiful that I do not feel like leaving it. This is a lovely boutique hotel called Le Sutra. Check it out online and have a look at their rooms.

I feel so good today, I am at peace.
And here's a pic from today, from my instagram feed. I spent a lot of time at the fabulous Madhuri Banerjee's place. That's what she posted on her instagram, and I reposted. grateful for the happy memories, and grateful for the happy times.

  2. I guess, everyone should have their own "ME" time. Sometimes when you are hard at yourself even a thousand of your very best friends can't help but you yourself should pick yourself up from your own mess. But that doesn't mean that you don't need friends, you require friends but there are some limitations too.
    I surely love the way you choose such diverse range of topics for your marathon. You're truly inspiring

  5. There is nothing like spending time with friends, especially when you are meeting them after a long time! Also, when you live in different cities, it is difficult to meet often, so when you finally do meet, it's like a dream come true. Glad you get to concentrate on both your professional and personal life when you travel on work, Preeti! Enjoy!

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. :)
