We worry too much about the future and the unknown with the result we forget to enjoy our present. We pay too much heed to trying to be a ‘know all’ and thereby end up confusing ourselves. Let it be. Don’t overstretch yourself, be grounded, have faith and let things unfold themselves. Don’t try to control things and don’t be overly concerned about what the future holds. There is joy in unexpected pleasant surprises. There is so much that life has to offer. Accept it. Trust God and His mysterious ways to lead as well as guide us. ~Latika Teotia
Do you think that you are in love? Do you have stars in your eyes and dream of a ‘happily ever after’ phase of life? Well, that’s romance. Love is much bigger, much deeper and much more profound. I can assure you that love is tough. Love is a commitment; it’s a promise to take the good and bad times in your stride. It’s about caring and sharing. It’s about unselfishness and an attitude of ‘my family comes first, my needs, desires and comfort comes last always and every time’. It’s the ability to outlast the bad times- never to let go, come what may. That’s what love is. So when you decide to take the plunge, remove those rose tinted glasses and see the stark realities first. If you feel that you can take your partner with all the flaws, accept that things can and will go wrong and that you are strong enough to weather any kind of storm, then go ahead, take the plunge. All the very best to you. ~Latika Teotia
God sends His Angels, disguised as human beings, when we feel that we are in deep trouble or when nothing seems to go right or when we feel lonely and unloved or when our world appears to have turned topsy turrvy. They appear out of the blue, put our life back on rails and depart.
The problem with us is that we get so attached to them that we just can’t reconcile to the idea of their ever leaving us- little realizing that they have temporarily come into our lives and are supposed to leave once their mission is accomplished. We mistake them for the people who are a permanent part of our lives and don’t understand why they should ever leave us. We find it very painful and have utmost difficulty in letting them go.
The essence of life is that we are all transient, each of us has a particular role to play that God has already scripted for us and after performing our parts we too must to bid adieu. The earlier we accept this the happier and more at peace we will be. ~Latika Teotia
Life is meant to be lived to the fullest and everything should be taken as it comes. There is nothing mysterious about it nor is it a riddle; learn to understand it and make the most of it. It’s your life, why should you be scared or be afraid of it? ~Latika Teotia
When stuck in grim situations you have two very clear choices- either search for solutions or make excuses. What becomes of you thereafter is entirely of your own making. Life is not fair and will throw unexpected punches at you; it’ll shock you once in a while and knock your breath out with solid blows; how you react is entirely up to you. You must not remain lying flat on the ground, because you are not defeated when you get knocked out, but you are, when you refuse to get up. So get up and accept life’s challenges. Not only will you succeed but you will also be confident of facing all situations in future.
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
There is joy in not only expecting the best to happen but also in accepting that whatever happens will be for the best. ~Latika Teotia
O God please shower your blessings in abundance on everyone and make each one of us experience the presence of your unconditional love. Draw us closer to you and help us build a living relationship with you in this life itself. May each one of us accept the life that you have gifted to us and make the best of it. May we should always be willing to change and have a positive perspective. May we be a blessing to others and always be peaceful on purpose. ~Latika Teotia
Once you come to terms with your shortcomings and not chase a mirage of an imaginable perfect person you’ll be able to do more justice with your life. ~Latika Teotia
We, at times, criticize ourselves for making immature choices. But if you think with real compassion you will find that those were the right choices at that point of time. Everything happens for a reason, maybe, that was destined. Anyway the best would be to accept whatever happened and move on.
