Make way for a New Beginning !!!

The best way to move on and move forward is to let go of the past. By past I mean everything hurtful, everything that brings or reminds us of pain, everything that was unpleasant and everything that led to disappointments. Unless you do that, the way forward will continue to be uphill. Let go and move on.  ~Latika Teotia

Don’t be tied down by bitterness and let it not ruin your life !!!

The choice to remain unhappy because of your hurts, pains and miseries by hanging on to them or live happily by forgiving and moving on is yours. There are lots of times that you may have felt that injustice had been done to you, that you were kind to someone who in return turned out to be ungrateful, that you loved with all your heart giving it all that you had but what you got in return was a broken heart and broken dreams, in short life has been very unfair to you. Right ??? So what do you want to do ? ??Hang on to those miserable thoughts and moments? Will it help in any way ??? Are you going to get justice, will your heart be the same once again???
Get real. Hanging on to bitter memories will only harm you because you will turn bitter and you will go crazy simply trying to deal with this accumulated mound of misery. Choose instead to forgive, ignore and move on. Get rid of that excess baggage that you have been carrying in your heart all this while and you will suddenly feel lighter as if a huge stone has been lifted from your chest. Forgive quickly and unconditionally, that’s the best way forward. Don’t be tied down by bitterness and let it not ruin your life. ~Latika Teotia

 

Choose your words carefully !!!

Words bite. They hurt more than physical blows. External hurt disappears after some time but the wounds that words leave linger on and on. It’s very difficult to erase them from your heart- some cruel words get permanently engraved. So choose your words carefully, choose them wisely, because, words once uttered cannot be taken back ~Latika Teotia

RAIN TO RAINBOW !!!

I’ve found that grief is not permanent and pain never lasts.There is always light at the end of a dark tunnel-as surely as day follows a dark night. I wrote this poem in a moment of despair. When I felt aggrieved and totally drained out. I struggled with my broken heart and found the strength to see beyond that grief. These sad moments had also taught me an invaluable lesson and brought me even more close to God.

Rain to Rainbow

I was lonely and I was in pain,
I sat quietly and watched the rain.
With each single drop, my pain did decrease,
I waited with hope for it to cease.

I picked up the broken pieces of my heart,
Even grief, though brief, had played a part.
Lo behold I spotted a rainbow at the end,
In my life, mercifully, it was only a bend.

Thank you, O Lord, for this beautiful life,
And the invaluable lessons I learnt from this strife.
In the absence of pain, grief, problems and strife,
We forget God’s wonderful gift of life.

Never give up !!!

If you fall down, don’t just stay there. Get up and get going. Life is much more than the heart break, the heart ache, the pain, the sorrow, the misery and the loneliness. It’s about picking yourself up. Never give up and say it’s “The End”. It’s okay to have a heart break, feel left out, feel depressed, feel sad and feel miserable. That’s the time to remind yourself that you are after all human and that you are not the only one who feels that way. Take a break catch your breath and move on. Surprise yourself by discovering your inner strength to get up, get going and come out smiling in the end. ~Latika Teotia

Instead of retaliating learn to respond !!!

Instead of retaliating learn to respond. Have the courage to accept your flaws and the serenity to face, correct and overcome them. If someone fights with you, make that person see reason. Respond with love to those who hate you. Do not condemn those who oppose you. The world is a beautiful place and you have but one life. Don’t waste it. Aim for peace of mind. ~Latika Teotia

Don’t expect !!!

Don’t expect everyone you meet to reciprocate with the same warmth and love otherwise you’ll end up getting hurt and feeling disappointed.
~Latika Teotia

Hurt will only beget hurt !!!

A happy marriage entails holding back your angry and venomous words when you want to use them the most. Hurt will only beget hurt. Wounds given by careless words fester for a long time and have the potential to destroy. Be patient. ~Latika Teotia
