At times very small things may bring much more happiness than bigger and “better” ones. Look around you and notice things. An innocent toothless smile, a good laugh, a good movie, an old song bringing back memories of yesteryears, a warm embrace, a child cuddling up to you or falling asleep in your arms, prayers, a flock of birds in the sky, a beautiful sunrise or sunset and so on can bring a lot of joy. Unwind and just let yourself free. You’ll see beauty all around you; beauty that is uplifting and all encompassing.~Latika Teotia
Choose, change, live and shape the life you wish to live. All that matters is your peace, happiness and a sense of fulfillment. . Don’t be bothered about what others will think or feel as they too have their own life. ~Latika Teotia
Do what makes you happy. If you find that whatever you are doing is pleasant, makes you feel good and brings happiness to you, then believe me, it’s the right thing to do. That is the easiest, most comfortable and the best way to make your dreams come true. ~Latika Teotia
Have power over of your life. Once you learn that you have the freedom to take your own decisions without looking over shoulder for approval or appreciation then you’ll realize that you are also responsible for them (your decisions). Then, you’ll have the freedom to turn your dreams into reality- no matter how small or big they are, whether they are too ambitious or ridiculous, too difficult or too easy- no one will laugh at them because you’ve taken that power away from everyone. So go ahead, be in charge of your life and live it the way you want to. Live a happy, soulful life full of bliss. ~Latika Teotia
Don’t let the virus of negative thoughts come into your world and wipe out the hard disc of your life; stay positive. Make a promise to yourself that you will steer clear of anything that brings a frown on the countenance- yours or someone else’s.
There are millions of ways in which you can spread joy as well as cheer. Follow that path. Start by putting a smile on your face first- that small curve can make a big difference in your life and in the lives of others. Think of good things only and banish the ones that pull you or the others down. Talk of good things, not bad; always talk of health, happiness, cheerfulness and prosperity. Look at the glass half full, not half empty; see the good side of everything.
Vow to stay optimistic, and make every effort to live it as well as make it come true. Make optimism your way of life. Make your friends as well as family feel special, show them their strengths, wipe out their negative thoughts. Be thrilled, excited and enthusiastic about their achievements as well as successes. Be good, do good and you’ll find that this world is a good place to live in.
Life is not about waiting for happy endings, it’s all about treasuring small and simple moments of joy, celebrating as well as respecting small victories of overcoming limitations, struggles and so on. Seek self progression and be grateful for all the blessings- big or small- that life has offered or offering to you. ~Latika Teotia
Carry cheerfulness as well as positive vibes with you and leave a trail of joy wherever you go. ~Latika Teotia
So caught up are we in our daily chores, our worries, anxieties, tensions and problems that we hardly notice the magnificence and splendor around us. Make a very conscious effort to see something beautiful around you; just gazing at small beauties fills us with peace. Unless we do that we’ll continue to be caught in this web of anxiety. There is so much joy to be seen in the antics of children as they go about playing unmindful of the people around them. An excited dog on a leash dragging its owner, the crazy jump of a monkey from one tree to another, squirrels playing hooky pokey trying to dodge the prying eyes of human beings are all out there for you to enjoy. Just put the pause button on your routine, take time off to stand and notice; you’ll be filled with so much joy and peace. So start taking delight in little things and appreciate small blessings. ~Latika Teotia
Good or bad, happy or sad, everything that happens does so for a reason; no incident in this world is a stray occurrence. Don’t be unnecessarily perplexed or anxious about it- accept it. There’s no point resisting it because it was ordained. A strain of music, perhaps a song, at times a stray incident brings back memories of another day. Some may be nostalgically beautiful others may bring back that ache in the heart that you thought you had overcome long ago. Don’t stop them, let them keep flooding in. They are your memories of an era gone by. Feel them. Relive the good ones. Chew the cud of nostalgia. You will feel energized. The unhappy ones too are welcome, let them in. That pain that you feel once again is the purging of your heart. Feel that the ache for one last time and forgive those that caused the pain. Let go of those memories tenderly. Gently bid them adieu with love. You are a new person now. Those old memories have gone and they have left a space; you are now ready to accept new ones. Fill your life with love; spread it. Live life the way you want to. Do things that you have wanted to do all this while but were afraid to. Live the life that brings you happiness and makes your heart sing with joy. ~Latika Teotia
Most of us have grown up in an environment where there were too many ‘No’s and limitations. We, therefore, get moulded to living within the confines of these self made boundaries where our world has been shrunk. Fulfilling our innermost desires makes us feel guilty and we are forever in this denial mode- perhaps a fallout of our childhood when lots of things were beyond our reach. It’s high time that we got rid of this habit and start living for our soul. Break free and follow your heart; live those dreams which you so desperately want to live. After all we have only one life and it’s our duty to do justice to ourselves too. Fulfilling desires and living the life we want is not a crime. So spread your wings and live for your own self. It’s your life and you deserve the best without any limits.~Latika Teotia
