If you are feeling that everything seems to be against you, nothing positive you are feeling about the situation, I would suggest you to find out the “Why”. Try to learn from the situation you have been put in. Take steps to change the situation for a positive outcome. Even if you cannot change the main issue, you can atleast change your reaction to it and that will take away half of the power from the negative issue…~Latika Teotia
Removing some of the very precious wishes from our bucket list doesn’t really mean that we are compromising or giving up on them, instead, it means that we are upgrading and evolving… ~Latika Teotia
If you want to change your life start by taking baby steps, one at a time, and follow your heart passionately. The very desire to change yourself for the better is a good beginning.
So go ahead, start your journey- sooner the better- and with that burning desire within you every step that you take brings you that much closer to your goal. But remember there are no shortcuts in life; you have to cross every stage and mark each milestone.
In your desire to reach earlier if you take shortcuts, it’s quite likely that you may wind up taking a long, grueling, laborious, tiring and more difficult path.
At times we get caught in the web of negativity. We see dark clouds everywhere, nothing seems to go right, whatever we touch appears to wilt and we feel that nothing will ever go right again. Happy times appear to be behind us and all this starts reflecting in every area of our life.
It is precisely at times like these that we must learn to let go and move on. It could be your job where nothing seems to be working well for you- maybe you have a bad boss or unhelpful peers or uncooperative subordinates. It could be your relationship where no amount of stoking ignites the fire of yesteryears. It could even be your neighborhood and a bunch of too inquisitive or plain indifferent neighbours. Or it could be anything of this sort. In these so called gloomy periods of your life, learn to take a step back, look at your situation with detachment and before long the solution will stare at you in your face.
The earlier you decide that nothing is worth spoiling your peace of mind the better it’ll be for you. Change that uncomfortable job- if you can; say goodbye to that relationship; move out of that neighborhood or ignore them and likewise decide to get rid of anything that’s taking away your peace of mind.
The moment you decide to move on a huge weight lifts, you are filled with new found energy and you feel motivated to take on life once again. Things start falling into place once again and you begin to feel that life will be even better than before. All you have to do is to have the courage to change direction and fly. ~Latika Teotia
Choose, change, live and shape the life you wish to live. All that matters is your peace, happiness and a sense of fulfillment. . Don’t be bothered about what others will think or feel as they too have their own life. ~Latika Teotia
I have come to realize that relationships which last a lifetime are of those where we accept each other as we are; where we give each other space and freedom for growing as well as evolving. Turn your energy into living your own life and minding your own business. ~Latika Teotia
We find it very difficult to break away from whatever we have been believing in. We have been put in a certain mould; it could be about your personality, your choices, your preferences, your habits and so on. It’s quite possible that some of the things you were made to believe about yourself may be incorrect but just because your teachers, friends, relatives and even your own family have made those assessments; you have started believing in them.
The result is that at times our capabilities get needlessly limited or underplayed and some of our traits are unnecessarily exaggerated. It is high time that we took a step back to carry out an honest self assessment and see where we stand. It’s quite likely that we may discover some hidden strengths and pleasantly surprise ourselves with some really good qualities that we possess. ~Latika Teotia
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
Believe me nothing remains the same. Change is inevitable and is the law of nature. People grow together and fall apart only to come close to others. That’s life; accept it. ~Latika Teotia
In order to remain relevant we have to keep up with the times; this may mean changing ourselves, adapting to the situation, carrying out mid course corrections and so on. At times these may forced on us and at other times these may come about by accident. Therefore, in a way, we are constantly evolving; our effort should be to evolve into a better person- better than the previous one before we decided to change. We must get rid of the extra baggage that we have been lugging around; in fact we must constantly take stock and free ourselves off what doesn’t help us evolve. Take a leap; don’t be afraid. Remember, we have nothing to lose but our own inhibitions, fears and limitations. ~Latika Teotia
