Footsteps.(post 15)




For today's post,  thought I would post what I do as a warm up for my writing. There is a site called One word.
You see a word at the top of the screen, and you get 60 seconds to write about it.
My word for today was 'Footsteps'.
And here is what i wrote:

The footsteps you leave on people’s hearts speak a lot about you. Tread with caution. Tread with love. Tread with care. Stomp if you must, but remember when you go, all you leave behind are memories.
The best part is, once you submit, you can also see what the others wrote on that same word, which you did.

Fun, isn't it?

That's all from me for today folks, goodnight.
Don't forget to show me some love by leaving me comments, so I know that you are with me, on this blog marathon!

  1. Hi Preeti. Good morning. Thanks for this post. I thought of playing the One Word game too and wrote the following on the word, Footsteps:

    Whenever I hear the word footsteps, I think about how I have played a role in someone’s life. Whether me being in their life and them being in mine has made a difference or not. When I think of footsteps, I think of a person walking on the beach and the marks which they leave behind. It is very important for us to be a part of one’s life. When we will their life with lots of love and care, they will feel loved.

  3. Awesome... With this word I recall footsteps as in concrete mortar which remains permanent.. Same way our behaviour and personality leaves permanent footsteps in someone's life.

    Even though I have not seen you in person you have made permanent footsteps in my life.. Thanks a ton..

  5. When we look back at our footsteps it reminds us of the precious moments we have shared with our loved ones. They remind of milestones crossed in life and hearts which we have touched.

  6. That's a great idea... ideas based on one word in 60 seconds...seemed impossible... but tried it anyway... this is what I wrote... and pretty happy about it too.

    My footsteps are precious to be left on a heart that pours water over them. Instead I would rather walk on a path with muck all over. Life is short so I choose to be wise and keep my step with care everytime. Too proud you think but I know how it feels when people act sick.

    Mostly the initial thought to write about heart came almost immediately since I logged in the site soon after I read your words.

    Thanks Preeti Mam

  8. Footsteps on the sand of time leave memories galore and when you walk into the sunset the impressions are left behind.(82 secs)

  9. Many aspire to walk in your footsteps. Some succeed to walk in your footsteps, only to imprint them much deeper in the sands of time. Your footsteps Mrs.Preeti Shenoy are here for
    eternity and will remain as clear as they were on the day you leave them, inspiring the little, the young and the old in your own way now and forever.

  11. Footstep... The path we walked till we attain the age we are now... And that path may be filled with different colors , shades and shapes... That has got footsteps...! We crossed many boundaries, walked through different paths of life and still walking... Just leaving our footstep in one or other way...But need to be little conscious it has to filled with love & care and joy... As it is footstep....! Which will have it's memory and impression.

  13. You are leaving wonderful footsteps with your writing and art work. :) Thanks for sharing about the "oneword" website. Tried it and what interests me is that we get to know what comes to our mind when we see the word.

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.






2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer



3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg





 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng








5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin


7. The Little Prince:  Antoine de saint exupéry

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.





You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…

This is how I welcome the new year

Happy happy happy new year folks!!! As I type this, I can hear loud party noises and fire crackers all around.
I dislike parties. I prefer being in a quiet atmosphere with my loved ones, doing something meaningful together.
We always light the lamp at midnight. It's a family tradition. You can see the lamp in the first picture, and my altar, illuminated by the brightness of the lamp in the second.

We thank the universe for ALL the blessings bestowed upon us.
And we welcome the new year with prayers and gratitude.


With this I come to the end of my blog marathon. 31 days, and I have given you all 31 posts!
Leave me comments. I love to hear from you.

 Happy New Year once again. May all your dreams come true.
