Though saying “me too” and “same here” allow others to open up and connect with us more but when someone is sharing his/her heart, we shouldn’t interrupt; as interruption might break their flow of thoughts which may make them forget the most important point or they just might get put off.
We should try to curb the desire of sharing our personal experience at that moment and just listen patiently. Maybe at some other point of time , we can share that we also feel or think the similar way about that particular issue. ~Latika Teotia
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
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
Don’t just go around,wishing and wanting. Open your eyes to what a beautiful life has been gifted to you. Don’t move around blinded by the veil of your desires just because society wants you to get into the “more-better-best” race. Sit back and start counting all the gifts and blessings you have been given. Appreciate more. With an appreciating heart, for what you have ,even if you don’t get more, you will still be at peace. ~Latika Teotia
You must know that you cannot control your fate and your destiny completely. But there are a lot of things that you can. You can choose your friends and the persons you interact with. You can decide what you want to do with your life, time and money. You can choose to see the glass half empty or half full; see threat in every opportunity or an opportunity in every threat. Remain in a state of self denial or remain composed in the face of adversity. You can select negativity or embrace positivity. And above all you can select your own beliefs, convictions, thoughts and opinions. Therefore, be judicious in what you choose.~Latika Teotia
Don’t centre your life on temporary or transient things; that way your peace, happiness, feeling of completeness and contentment too would be, at best, temporary.
Base your life, instead, on everlasting things which give you a sense of fulfillment. Your position in life, your wealth, your looks and so on will disappear with the passage of time; the more you try to hang on to them, the more insecure you’ll feel because you will always be scared of losing them.
Rise above all this and aim at things that will bring you inner peace while you are alive and will also outlast you. Your attitude should always be of being merciful, always be kind, compassionate, gentle, loving, caring and empathetic. The more you give of these the more you will receive; it’s that kind of wealth which will never diminish with the passage of time despite being spent- it’ll keep adding up and also give you a sense of fulfillment. ~Latika Teotia
If you think that regulating your life and fixing whatever goes wrong in it is someone else’s responsibility, then you are mistaken and not being realistic. You and you alone are responsible for whatever happens, or does not happen, in your life. You can’t just throw your burden on someone else’s shoulder and hope that things will work out. God helps those who help themselves. So get up and get going by seizing the moment and taking charge. ~Latika Teotia
Along with age comes invaluable experience. Time is a great teacher, so are successes and failures. Nothing goes waste; everything that we go through, every occurrence and every incident leaves a lesson in its wake. It is this experience that builds in us an ability to recognize good friends from opportune or fair weather ones, a knack to distinguish right from wrong, patience to take sorrows in our stride and so on. And it is this that also finally makes us what we are. We should learn to enjoy our new self; we’ve earned it. ~Latika Teotia
Setbacks and challenges don’t occur to scare or punish us. Life expects us to grow and evolve in such situations. Accept them positively and deal with them accordingly. You possess immense strength so don’t give up and don’t give in.
Motivation by and through others alone isn’t sufficient to keep you going because it vanishes when confronted with big unexpected challenges. It may keep you going initially for a few months but doesn’t last very long. So what should you do???
Self motivation and belief in your own self will see you through. The belief in your own self earned over the years facing challenges big and small makes you confident of taking on all kinds of challenges as well as tackling every situation. ~Latika Teotia
