Nothing is more important than your own happiness and peace !!!

You live only once so make the most of it. Don’t slog so hard that work becomes your life; instead enjoy your work and set limits or boundaries, don’t cross them. Similarly love, but do that to make yourself happy, love for a life of fulfillment, love if it makes you ‘complete’ love because you ‘want’ to and not because you ‘have’ to; it’ll be a big mistake if you love out of compulsion or to please someone or because someone wants you to. Dream and fulfill them; set achievable goals.

Don’t live in utopia, be grounded to reality; strike a balance between what you want and what you can achieve- whether it’s work or relationship or anything else. This will lead to a sense of satisfaction and avoid frustration. Don’t cling on to something which has ceased to be yours- whether it’s a failed relationship or work or anything else- learn to let go; if it’s giving you tensions or is a drag on your happiness, it’s best to get rid of it at the earliest. Nothing is more important than your own happiness. It may be difficult initially but with the passage of time you’ll find that it was the best option. ~Latika Teotia

Forgive, forget and move on !!!

It is not a sign of weakness to forgive, forget and move on. On the contrary it shows our strength and our character. It is not worth the time, effort and energy to hold on when things go beyond a certain point, and it’s a waste of time to brood . I know ,the decision to forgive, forget and permanently break ties is a tough one and is easier said than done, but it’s the best one . Therefore, be brave and take the plunge- you have only your problems and tensions to lose. The future will be bright; at least it will be better, brighter and happier than the one you are presently in. ~Latika Teotia

Have power over of your life !!!

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

Be peaceful on purpose !!!

Don’t be overwhelmed by your problems; instead have full faith in God. You never know He may have much bigger plans and much better things lined up for you. ~Latika Teotia

 

Make your soul happy !!!

By all means help out others, sacrifice if you have to but it should not at the cost of your own peace, ease and well being. More often than not we self sacrifice and do things to please others. At the back of our minds we always have this feeling that if we don’t do this or that, others might leave us- we are always looking for other people’s approval. Don’t be a hypocrite; be your natural as well as original self; do what gives you satisfaction and carry out those tasks which make you happy, because in the end what matters is your own peace of mind as well as self satisfaction. ~Latika Teotia

Disappoint toxic people by side stepping !!!

More often than not people will rub you the wrong way expecting a strong reaction. Disappoint them by side stepping; your peace should be more important to you than proving yourself right or having the last word. As it is most of such arguments take place just to trigger you or bring you down to their level. It’s better to remain quiet and send them loving vibes and peace. Exercise restraint and self control always- act, don’t react. ~Latika Teotia

Are you weary ?

By holding on to God at all times, we can remain calm and enjoy peace in us even in the middle of our storms. ~Latika Teotia

 

May God bless us all with more love , more peace and more light !!!

May God show light to those who are groping in the dark not knowing which direction to take and in the process hurting others- knowingly or unknowingly.  A single humble candle can defeat even the most stubborn darkness; an enlightened person can clear the cobwebs of even the most confused mind. May God enlighten everyone- especially those that hurt others. ~Latika Teotia

Appreciate small blessings !!!

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

You are strong, stay that way !!!

Stay calm and composed even when the things around you appear to be in a state of chaos. Learn to draw on your inner strength to brave all the storms. Stay firm and rock steady and let the disorder around you turn into order. That is your real test. You must not allow anyone or anything to take away your peace of mind or unbalance you. Don’t let even the worst of storms steal your inner peace and calm. You are strong, hold on to your peace. ~Latika Teotia
