On jealousy and possesiveness in a relationship. Your questions answered!

Off late, I have been crazily sketching/painting. I am into this thing called 'Illustrated Art journalling'. In case you don't know what that is, you can go HERE .
There's a detailed explanation there.

I like to put the date and time in all my sketches as it's a record of my day, what I did, what I saw, where I was at that point in time, and how I was feeling.

Here are two pictures that I did today.


Meanwhile , a video where i went live on Facebook, has got 1.2 million views, 16000 likes and more than 1800 shares on Facebook. I do something called Thoughtful Thursdays, where I interact with my readers live.
For those of you who are not on Facebook or who missed it, I  thought I would upload it on youtube as well. I have just done that and I sharing it here.





I have answered a lot of questions on jealousy and possessiveness in relationships, that people asked me, when I was live. I have also read out bits of my new book, It's All In The Planets. So you can listen to that as well. The whole video is about 22 minutes.

Do watch it and  let me know what you think?
Love
Preeti

  5. Really lovely sketches Preeti. It is always nice to see the creativity oozing out from each sketch. I was a part of Thoughtful Thursdays last week when you were talking about Jealousy and Possessiveness in relationships. I feel that both of these traits are like parasites which hamper the relationship. We should be careful not to let it get out of hand and if its present, then to find a way to get rid of it without too much of disagreement between the two partners.

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

5 easy and useful tips to help you achieve your goals.

Dreams are goals with a deadline. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. I am a huge believer of these two statements.

Many a time, I have been asked this question
'How do you do so many things? How do you focus on your goals? How are you so dedicated?'

Many have written to me asking me to share my routine/ time-management/how I organise my day. So here goes:

Currently I am doing a challenge called Intkober where you do 31 drawings in Ink, in 31 days. The prompts are given in advance. Click on the link to know more. Thousands of artists all over the world do it, each year. I post my drawings on myInstagram art handle.

This is in addition to my writing which I do daily. I also make a portrait every single day, apart from Inktober.

I guess, to most people who see this, it looks like a LOT of things and they wonder how I manage it. Here are five  things I do, which help me. (and I hope they help you too)

1. Define the goals.

At the beginning of each month, I write down (in a dia…

Why you are making a mistake if you don't speak up about #MeToo

The last few days have been tumultuous for everyone in urban India. If you are a working professional, or have worked at some point in your life, or if you strongly believe in gender equality,  it is hard to not get affected by the #Metoo movement. The #Metoo movement has taken off in India, like the  metaphorical snowball. I too, like many of you,  have been following closely, in shocked silence, as it has been unfolding. I can't tell you how happy I am that women in India, are standing up in solidarity, taking back their dignity.

Several  powerful men have been named.The stories have come POURING out.
I shall not go into details of the men named or the incidents here, as it is all over the media.

When something happens in your field of interest, it is natural that it affects you more than the incidents that happen in other fields. For me, what has been particularly disturbing was that the names from the field of literature that were coming out as well.
