Dear Heavenly Father,
Sometimes, things happen in this world which leave a trail of sorrow. But, O God, we know that you love us. That you care for each one of us- even those that are the cause of sorrow for others. Please be by our side, show us Your light and lead us to peace and joy. Guide those that inflict pain on others so that they too get healed and start spreading joy. You are our last refuge; take us under your mighty wings so that no harm befalls us.
“When you take time and look lovingly at everyone your perspective changes for the better and brings peace in its wake.” Life is a blessing for those who love easily.~Latika Teotia
“Giving is a game in which everybody wins.”Why I say this is because when you do something nice or help someone unconditionally, the brain is flooded with serotonin ,the feel good chemical that helps to energize you. That’s why you feel happy when you share your gifts.If you notice the successful people are the ones who share their gifts without holding them back. By sharing with their colleagues,they create a powerful network of people who trust and support them. I won’t be wrong in saying that you can enjoy a living only by how much you give. So beautifully written by Harold Abbott~
“Do something for somebody gladly;
It will sweeten your every care.
In sharing the sorrows of others,
Your own are less hard to bear.”
Selective amnesia or forgetfulness is good for leading a happy life. Forget the uncomfortable incidents and be grateful for the good ones. Write your bitter memories on sand and the good ones on stone so that winds of time can quickly sweep away the bad memories and the memorable ones remain permanently etched.~Latika Teotia
Live life honestly, sincerely, joyfully and with compassion for fellow beings notwithstanding what it gives you in return. ~Latika Teotia
We all are busy in our lives handling our homes, work, various issues, ailments and so on… sometimes we don’t have a second to spare even for our own selves, so caught up with life we are…
But, despite our problems, despite the pressure of anything, despite all kinds of challenges we face in our daily lives, if we can still just pause and stop to look at someone else’s problems, if we can just smile at the other person, believe me, we would have not only made someone’s day but will also feel that our own burden has become lesser and our problems may not appear to be that big after all! That’s the beauty of caring for others.
Have you noticed how much at peace those people are who walk up to a perfect stranger and lend a helping hand, without being asked to and without expecting anything in return? That is what unconditional caring for others and helping others do to you. That is what service, good deeds and kindness do; they help the receiver as well as the giver. ~Latika Teotia
Let’s open our hearts a little wider and make a conscious choice to be kind, caring, generous, patient, accepting, forgiving, and selfless. ~Latika Teotia
When crisis emerge , most of us become so hard on ourselves that we start hurting those who love and care for us the most. We get tempted to give up on our purpose. We begin to compromise on our values . We get into wrong company or relationships or else build walls around us…
It is okay for the time being to get discouraged, disillusioned or disheartened but the first thing which needs fixing is “OUR ATTITUDE” .
I know it is very difficult to remain positive and calm in such times ‘But’ we have to consciously try our best to stay strong by building faith in God. We might not be able to change our circumstances but we can for sure cooperate with God and have patience. Maybe God is rearranging our lives and it is taking us where we need to be. Let the light of our faith in the Lord be our guiding light .
Last but not the least, we should not lose love for our loved ones and most of all love for ourselves. Be believing !!! ~Latika Teotia
