In all sincerity, today, I want to express my gratitude to all those who have contributed to my well being, for “being there” when I needed them the most and for having made me felt loved every step of the way- especially when the chips were down and when the Sun didn’t shine too brightly. In the same flow I’m also grateful to all those who left me- especially during the storm and also those who were the cause of storms in my life. I’m glad that they left me when they did because they taught me invaluable and tough lessons about relationships. I could see very clearly who my friends were. Please bless these true friends O God in your own special way. ~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.
