Loneliness and depression !!!

It is only human to long for emotional support and there’s nothing wrong or demeaning about it. Loneliness is a major cause of depression and leads to negativity; thereafter it is downhill all the way. In such times people need emotional support of someone who believes in them. Seeking or accepting support during these times is very courageous and a positive step. In fact it is the self affirming support of family & friends, that pulls out people from depression and restores self confidence, self esteem as well as self belief. ~Latika Teotia

Positivity is the key to success !!!

Do you believe that when you have lost everything, you have ACTUALLY lost EVERYTHING ???
You lose everything when you breathe your last, when there’s no life left in your body; you can’t expect a lifeless body to do anything. While there’s life, there’s hope, and while there’s hope defeat is not even on the horizon. There are numerous motivating real life tales of people who snatched victory from the jaws of certain defeat; of people who had the ‘never say die’ spirit alive and lived to share their experiences. All such people had a few qualities which set them apart. First, a belief in themselves. They believed in their own abilities and didn’t rely on others. Second, they had faith, always had faith that things will work out in the end and that they had to be a part of that turnaround. Third, they had a positive attitude. Positivity is the key to success and plays an important role in shaping our lives- success or failure depends on our own selves.~Latika Teotia

Learn to let go !!!

If you cling to your resentments, you are consigning yourself to a lonely, bitter life and running the risk of developing serious emotional problems. Learn to let go. ~Latika Teotia

Stay Motivated !!!

Forget about all those past failures; forget about what happened in the past- it doesn’t matter. Concentrate on the present- on what lies ahead and just press on. Trust God to help you. ~Latika Teotia

Don’t water poisonous weeds !!!

Which heavy baggage have you been lugging around for so long? Which guilt have you been hiding? What is eating your very soul? And what is the price that you are paying for it? Is it worth it? Do old sorrows, setbacks, perceived insults, grudges, and so on matter in the long run? Don’t you think that the price is too high?

It’s high time to bury the dead- let the past be past. Don’t rake up dead issues and don’t water those poisonous weeds. Don’t give energy to something which is too heavy for your mind body and soul because it is likely to break the back of your endurance. Bathe yourself in the gentle glow of God’s unconditional grace and mercy. ~Latika Teotia

My prayer !!!

Dear Heavenly Father,

Sometimes, things happen in this world which leave a trail of sorrow. But, O God, we know that you love us. That you care for each one of us- even those that are the cause of sorrow for others. Please be by our side, show us Your light and lead us to peace and joy. Guide those that inflict pain on others so that they too get healed and start spreading joy. You are our last refuge; take us under your mighty wings so that no harm befalls us.

Amen !!!

Rise above that petty ego !!!

In the movie “Love Story,” there is a line that says, “Love means never having to say that you’re sorry.” It is wrong, absolutely wrong. Love means- being the very first one to admit when you’re wrong and, also, always be the first one to apologize.

Never hesitate to say sorry, because ‘sorry’ is that magical word which not only demolishes walls (of misunderstanding) between people but also builds strong everlasting bridges between them.”

If you are thinking of mending fences or wishing to apologize to the people you have (or may have) wronged, at the top of your list should be your spouse, your children, your friends and your relatives because we tend to take them for granted. It is because they love us more than we realise, that they are not so vocal or expressive about their hurt. Remember just as we take their love for granted, they too put up with our harsh words/ ill behaviour. Making amends will bring much needed peace as well as healing and strengthen your relationship as well.

Don’t you think, today, this very moment is the right time to walk that extra mile, take that long overdue step and seek their forgiveness?

It will, indeed, be so very sad if you realized towards the end of your life that there were people who you should have apologize to. Remember the words that are not spoken NOW, will NEVER be spoken- actions that are not taken NOW will NEVER be taken.

So go ahead, rise above that petty ego, apologize unconditionally to all those people you have hurt and forever bury the hatchet. Write a letter, send an email, text a message, compose a WhatsApp note or walk across and JUST DO IT. Believe me, you will feel lighter and more cheerful . ~Latika Teotia

Keep the “come what may” spirit alive !!!

There are moments when you feel restless and uneasy about something but you’re capable of achieving anything that you want. You have the willpower, resolve, tenacity, patience and above all the courage to do that. So, if some hindrance comes your way, remember it is temporary and you can overcome it without much problem. Keep the “come what may” spirit alive. ~Latika Teotia
