Never give up. Post 6

How has your day been? Mine was exhausting, but in a good way as I exercised a lot today.
I have been enjoying interacting with you, and reading all your comments.

Today, I am sharing with you two quotes that hang on the wardrobe in my room. These are quotes I find very meaningful. I had picked these scrolls in the course of my travels (I am fortunate to be able to travel a lot) and now they hang in my room where I see them every day. I relate to them a lot, and find them profound.

Which of these quotes do you relate to? Do you relate to them at all? Are there any quotes you live by?
Share with me in my comments.

Till tomorrow, smile!

ps:Grab my books:


  1. I loved the first one. when it comes to failure, I really don't know how to move on gracefully, I find it extremely difficult to start all over again. In college I had submitted final draft of dissertation and my principal madam asked me to rewrite 6 chapters again. I was numb and I could not write a single word for two days but then the new draft was appreciated by every one. sometimes its very hard to stay motivated.

  2. I can relate to both mam. They are really good ones. The undying spirit and understanding the true meaning of life and love is so pure. There are some that I believe in too...quotes like " one smile from your side can make a difference". " Change is the only constant and if we do not change we will be dead". I have a small notebook name dream catcher in which I write quotes from books and novels I read throughout the year and which I can resonate with. I like reading those quotes whenever I feel a bit slow and sad. Eagerly waiting for your next post

  3. Hello Preeti,
    Beautiful Quotes indeed. For me, my Mother's comments about things we happened to see on our way while walking together; or her perception about life and its strange ways make more sense. Now that I am away from her, her dialogues are my constant companions. For example, whenever she would see me giving up to sleep she would always say, "Vidyarthi ko sukh kahan aur sukh chaahney wale ko vidya kahan." In English it means A student has no rest and a person who wants rest will not attain knowledge. Every little achievement demands hard work and dedication.

  4. I liked both quotes. Very true those lines are must follow in life. Thank you so much for spreading positivity which u does as always.

  5. I can relate to both of them. We should never ever give up. We should do something useful while we are here. I believe that the world needs love. These communal fights, terrorism, racism, violence, human trafficking are very unhealthy, not just for us, but for the next generation. They learn from us. Something very important today is keeping the roads clean, like we keep our homes clean. I feel blessed to be born in a democratic country. I feel that democracy should always live.

    I love many quotes. They focus on Karma, never losing faith and hope. There is no substitute for hard work and determination. If you dream of doing it, work to achieve it. Have patience. Self Love is important. Loving others unconditionally is very important. Focus on present. Don't fear. Focus on giving, not getting. Karma is watching you.

    LOVE is very important in life.

    1. One quote is very important in my life. My school's motto is "Service before self". That has made a huge difference in my life.

  6. Love both quotes and particularly the second one. I have one plastered on the wall Don't Quit that I bought during the college years in Pune over more than a decade. One fine day, remove it from the luggage and stick it to the wall. Such quotes work like the magic pill on us :)

  7. Beautiful quotes Ma'm! I can relate to both.. Actually, I'm a kind of person who loves to read quotes whenever I feel down.. They influence me a lot.. I try to find suitable quote related to every situation and now I have a good collection in my phone..
    I ll share few of them:

    "If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you.. Don't run from challenges, embrace them.. No one grows in comfort"

    "Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley"

    "Keep your face always toward the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you"

  8. both the quotes are truly inspiring! i really loved it! life is truly about never giving up.

  9. Hy ma'am.. Ur blogs are awesome as alwys.. The second quote which u have mentioned in today's blog s really awesome which I cud relate myself.. As u mentioned in the previous blog about the topics tht v need u to blog m mentioning it here.. Cud plz give some tips about focusing in ones work and to get rid of all distractions..

  10. I can relate myself for the 1st quote.. As I fight for everything n try not to give up.. No matter how bad I m feeling on that moment... Mam and you?????

  11. I could relate to the first quote ma'am. Also I loved the dangler on the left side of the scroll, it looks pretty and adds to the beauty of the scroll.

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


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. :)
