Tell me 5 good things about YOU. (in my comment box please)

Hi there,

Hope you are holding up well on day 10 of #LockdownIndia !
Weekend is here--although every day now resembles the other. There's no concept of "weekday" anymore. Those of you who are working from hope--I hope you get a respite from the usual work pressure and  added stress of work-from-home.

I had a fabulous home workout todayI think it is possible to have a proper workout at home, and be fit even though we don't have access to the gym.

I think it is very important to celebrate our smallest successes. Be it a simple task like sweeping and mopping the house, or resisting the temptation to take an afternoon snooze or cleaning up your bathroom really well. We need to remember to applaud ourselves for even the smallest tasks we managed to achieve, simply because these are very stressful times. Our idea of 'normal' has been completely distorted, and we're bombarded with news of deaths and suffering.

I find that journalling helps me. I have been writing in journals ever since I was a child. I write when i am sad, when I am happy, worried, excited, eager, tired, confused. Writing has been my saviour for ages.

Have you ever maintained a journal? If so did you give up because you were bored of the monotony?
If you want to journal and are looking for what you can write about please read this article:
7  different ways to journal to help you help you create, reflect and explore.

I want to give you a little  kick-start into appreciating yourself: So in my comment box, tell me 5 good things about yourself that you are proud of!
I was once asked this in an interview. You can watch the interview here  where I have candidly answered why  I love myself.

Do it--go! If you are reading this in your inbox, head over to my blog and feel free to use my comment box.

 See you tomorow!

Till then--get busy, filling up my comment box with 5 good things about you. What you believe are good (not what others tell you).

Lots of love

  8. Now Preetiji this is an arduous task that you have given me.Its so easy to elucidate and eulogize others (if they deserve it).
    Like its easy to describe you as a smart,confident, intelligent lady with a plethora of skills and a prolific writer and artist.
    But it becomes a tad difficult
    to self -eulogize
    1) Emotional (and an emotional fool sometimes)
    2)Never feel lonely ,I kind of enjoy my company but am certainly not a hermit.
    3)Have learnt to fight and win .Coz I was born with severe asthama but came back strong each time.
    4)Pretty decent with my core work of investments.(Learnt it for over 12 yrs and made few mistakes also )
    5)Can't think of more.....
    Lots of Respect to you 🙏🙏

    1. I think we have been constantly told "Others should speak good of you, you shouldn't etc etc. Hence it becomes difficult for us to speak about ourselves. For your 5th point, I will fill it for you: You are kind and have a large heart.Lots of ❤️to you!

    2. I am overwhelmed with happiness with your kind words Mam.Thank you so much it means so much to me .Right now I am on "cloud no 9".....By the way love that song by Bryan Adams.🙏🙏Lots of regards to you

  9. 1. I am quite generous. I try my best to help and understand people the most.
    2. I love and believe myself.
    I feel happy about it.
    3. I am mature.
    4. I put in effort for things I am passionate about.
    5. I have learnt to handle myself, therefore I am more dependent on myself than others.

  12. Ashok Sharma here
    I am going through a very difficult phase of my life as I lost my life partner more than a month ago.. I still try to stay calm and I would like to say that I am an early riser for the past two decades.. After getting up I drink 6 glasses of water in empty stomach. This is my first quality that I continue even now.
    Listening to music for relaxation and exercise for 20 minutes This is my second quality Cooking and experimenting with new dishes is my third quality. Reading the news paper and magazines and books are my fourth quality . Have an early light dinner at least two hours before sleeping and sleeping for a minimum of 6 hours or more is my fifth and final quality.. Really enjoying reading your daily blogs..

    1. Dear Ashok,
      Your comment deeply moved me. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I completely can relate to the pain of losing a loved one forever.
      Do read the last chapter in my book 'Love a little stronger'. (you will have to buy an ebook now) You will know why I even started this blog.Lots of ❤️to you!

    2. Thanks for your immediate response and thoughts.... Yes I will certainly read... Keep writing... I am slowly getting back to normalcy...

  13. 1) I love myself for just the way I'm and I dont care what people think of me.
    2) I care a lot for people I truly love (not way too much to make them feel sudfocated).
    3) I give valuable advices and motivation to people who need my help and most of advices have helped them.
    4) I have good sense of humour and also sarcastic/ savage in nature (when required)
    5) I smile almost all the time despite what all I'm going through for my happiness and also my smile can make others smile too.

  14. When I was a child, I used to maintain a journal and write in it everyday. I may have skipped my favorite TV Show, but I would never miss writing an entry in my Journal. I had the one with a small lock and key and would hide it in my barbie suitcase in my closet! After I grew up, I could not maintain a Journal as I would be busy with other activities.

    1. I have become more responsible.
