The dreamers, the doers and the successful ones always catch the limelight; I want to include those that tried too in this category. ~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
Most of us have grown up in an environment where there were too many ‘No’s and limitations. We, therefore, get moulded to living within the confines of these self made boundaries where our world has been shrunk. Fulfilling our innermost desires makes us feel guilty and we are forever in this denial mode- perhaps a fallout of our childhood when lots of things were beyond our reach. It’s high time that we got rid of this habit and start living for our soul. Break free and follow your heart; live those dreams which you so desperately want to live. After all we have only one life and it’s our duty to do justice to ourselves too. Fulfilling desires and living the life we want is not a crime. So spread your wings and live for your own self. It’s your life and you deserve the best without any limits.~Latika Teotia
What makes me come alive? What did I want to do with my life? What kind of a person did I want to be? These questions made me look back at my life experiences. I had two choices: to either sit and sulk, or take hold of myself and make my life worthy. I chose to stand firm. I chose ‘Me’, and that means taking full responsibility for my part in the co-creation of my life.The lines that touched me and continue touching my soul are these: “When you look back on the landscape of your life, you should feel proud of the footprints you have left behind.” Since then, there is no looking back.
As Long As I Live !!!
I am learning to be less vulnerable, more strong,
Trying my best not to be wrong.
I’m trying to accept beauty of this life,
Even though it is torn with strife.
I’m learning to smile through my tears,
Suppressing my hidden as well as visible fears.
I am learning to enjoy this process,
It doesn’t matter if it isn’t a success.
Instead of counting the cost,
I’m learning not to get lost
And not to forsake the colors
Of life, in the midst of storms and others.
I am learning to come out of the dark,
And touch the sky; fly like a lark.
I’m learning to hold on to my dreams,
And to overcome my inner screams.
I am learning to live well, give my best,
Do what is right and to God leave the rest.
Build bridges, let none fall.
And above all be a good friend to all.
When I reflect on my life. I remember that I did the best that I could. And when I think about the time now, I can confidently say that…I am doing the best that I can. ~Latika Teotia
