Motivation by and through others alone isn’t sufficient to keep you going because it vanishes when confronted with big unexpected challenges. It may keep you going initially for a few months but doesn’t last very long. So what should you do???
Self motivation and belief in your own self will see you through. The belief in your own self earned over the years facing challenges big and small makes you confident of taking on all kinds of challenges as well as tackling every situation. ~Latika Teotia
Our inner strength and self belief comes into play when we face rough weather. By nature we are reluctant to move out of our comfort zones but when pushed into a corner we jump up to face what life throws at us.
We realise subsequently in hindsight that whatever happened was good and we feel glad that it happened the way it did as well as at the time it did. It could be the breakup of a rotten and difficult relationship which we had been unsuccessfully trying to maintain or it could be a job that was giving us endless nightmares and such like situations or circumstances.
When we pass through such transitional period it is HOPE that keeps us going. Hope, that things can’t remain as bad forever. Hope, that we’ll see light at the end of the long tunnel of dark despair. Hope, that a bright sunshine awaits us the end of the seemingly endless gloomy night. Nurture that hope, never let it die. Keep a positive attitude. ~Latika Teotia
Make some boundaries for yourself, set limits for everyone, draw a line that no one, just NO ONE, should cross and refuse to be used. You are not a doormat to be trampled underneath. You are gentle and kind but that’s your strength; let no one mistake it for your weakness. Learn to stand up and don’t take any nonsense from anyone. ~Latika Teotia
We want our prayers answered in time but rarely pause to think whether we prayed in time. Before we hold God responsible for our unanswered prayers, we must ask ourselves, did we pray in time? In fact we must search our souls and ask ourselves that do we pray regularly or do we look up to Him only when in trouble. ~Latika Teotia
Worrying doesn’t make the problem smaller. Do your best and unto God leave the rest. Que Sera Sera, what’ll be will be. ~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
You get up in the morning; it’s the start of yet another day in your daily life. However, if you want to make it interesting, exciting, extract the best out of it and make those 24 hours go a long way then make believe that it’s your last day! Make every minute, every second, nay, every heartbeat count. Do things you’ve hesitated doing before. Go on, apologize to that dear friend with whom you haven’t spoken for quite some time now. Express your true feelings to your sweetheart. Give a hug to your children or grandchildren and tell them how much you love them. Wear that beautiful dress you’ve been saving for an occasion. Eat from your best crockery, drink from those crystal glasses that you’ve been maintaining for some grand party. What’s more precious than your own life? YOU are THAT important person you’ve been waiting for so long. Throw yourself a party, pamper your own self, tickle those taste buds and have a blast.
We keep waiting for that right occasion to take out that pretty dress, little realizing that we may not fit into it after some time. We keep maintaining those crystal and bone chinaware little realizing that they can break. Use them often; use them for and on your own self- because the most important person is YOU. ~Latika Teotia
Don’t burn your fingers trying to fit the broken pieces which are of no use and are way past their expiry date. . God has already written your life’s chapter let Him lead you. ~Latika Teotia
Things are changing every moment. We are destined to see as well as undergo many changes in our lives. Don’t resist anything- whether it’s pleasant or painful; undergo it with a smile on your face. If you can be happy when something pleasant happens to you (and most often you know that it’s temporary), then, there’s no reason to feel dejected when something unpleasant happens to you- because it too shall pass.~Latika Teotia
Living according to mood swings can mess up our lives and can have a huge impact on our relationships as well. We need to have control over such behavioral swings. Meditate on the thoughts which trigger you and make conscious effort to deal and heal. ~Latika Teotia
