Learn from how others treated you. Learn from how YOU treated others. Learn from all the mistakes. Try to be more wiser in 2019. ~Latika Teotia
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
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
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
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.
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
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
“When you take time and look lovingly at everyone your perspective changes for the better and brings peace in its wake.” Life is a blessing for those who love easily.~Latika Teotia
Unless you risk and break free of the bars that hold you caged you won’t gain something which can take you to even greater heights. Gather all the courage; dare yourself to challenge the limits and cross the threshold of fear as well as anxiety- something better awaits you at the other end. Those who wait for fruits to fall wait longer than those who pluck it off the tree. ~Latika Teotia
I have met some people who won’t put their trust in God but will put it in other things.Well,they have their own reasons to feel that way. Like some of them have felt that they have been let down by God. They did believe in God with their heart & soul and prayed but their prayers weren’t answered. They have seen their loved ones going through traumatic experiences and deaths; hence,left them disappointed and bitter.
I feel when things go wrong it helps to have someone to blame and when no one is handy,its convenient and easy to point the finger at God but He is not the one who is responsible for any of those things.
God desires only the best for us. Tragedy may come into our lives because that’s just a part of living on planet earth. But if we turn our sorrows over to Him and trust Him with our heart and soul, God will surely make something beautiful even out of those tragedies and sufferings. Maybe, you will get new perspective about those painful occurrences.
All I want to convey is when you trust God with your life , you begin to realize all things do work together for your good. Even the blemishes serve to make you a better,stronger and more capable person.
I request you to trust God and His ways more and more as He is the only One who can truly,strengthen you,empower you and build you.
He is a Faithful God !!! ~Latika Teotia
