Learn to count your blessings !!!

You can choose to be happy or miserable- that choice depends entirely on your own self. You don’t have to look far to find happiness; the first step is to count your blessings and express gratitude for them. One should never compare oneself with others; and if at all you want to, then do that with those beneath you or those who are less fortunate. If you can see (even though you may have to use glasses) then you are luckier than those who are visually handicapped and who would give their right arm to be able to see even from one eye. If you can hear, talk and walk then you are luckier than those handicapped on account of these. So next time you are feeling sad, down and depressed, just carry out this small exercise- count your blessings. Before long you’ll have enough reasons to feel uplifted and happy. ~Latika Teotia

Live a life that makes your heart sing with joy !!!

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
