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.
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
Every day brings forth a bouquet of wonderful gifts; all you have to do is to look around you. Some may be very apparent or evident. It could be something as simple as accidentally meeting an old friend or discovering an old photo of yours or someone dear to you. Memories stored long ago in some hidden chamber come tumbling out giving you immense joy. Be thankful for these gifts- big or small. ~Latika Teotia
Live life honestly, sincerely, joyfully and with compassion for fellow beings notwithstanding what it gives you in return. ~Latika Teotia
Good or bad, happy or sad, everything that happens does so for a reason; no incident in this world is a stray occurrence. Don’t be unnecessarily perplexed or anxious about 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.
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
The most unexpected turn in your life’s journey at times becomes the defining moment when a beautiful part of your life actually begins. That meeting with a complete stranger on a train journey; that quarrel when you suddenly caught a glimpse of the ugly side of the other person’s character; that sudden inspiration to try something and so many other such events happen for a reason. You never know when it’s your ‘Eureka’ moment. So treat every moment with reverence. ~Latika Teotia
As long as we expect something from others we won’t be able to find peace and happiness. This is especially true of relationships. If you expect that the other person will complete you and help you attain the next level of evolution, then, think again. Rework your expectations, hopes and aspirations. Expect 100% from your own self and nothing from others- what you get from them is a bonus and should be treated as such. ~Latika Teotia
Don’t tie yourself to moments or days in the near or not so near future- don’t make promises to yourself that you will start a new phase of your life on 1st January by drawing up a long list of New Year’s resolutions or wait for Valentine’s Day to express your love or feel upset if your partner forgets it or your anniversary or birthday or any other date. Every day is a good day and life is not defined by dates but by events or happenings. Relationships and events are more important than dates and rituals. ~Latika Teotia
