Everyone of us experience hardships and when hit by one, or two, each of us handles them in our own way. I choose to hold on to the thought that just as certain as hardships happen so does prosperity and my go-to inspiration is a beautifully written story that I have hanging on my wall authored by Joseph M. Marshall III entitled
Keep Going: The Art of Perseverance
Well from January 5th thru January 8th I was walking in light. Everything is coming together on how to use our betting program to consistently win when in the early morning hours I found myself walking in shadow when my kitty Chili (named for his coloring the same as a Chili Pepper) suffered a stroke and had to be euthanized followed by the loss of my only remaining cat ZoeBob this past Monday January 17th, who was diagnosed with an advanced stage of lymphoma. So the two dear to my heart kitty’s, the last two remaining pets that were part of Ed’s and my life are now gone and I’m grieving.
I share this with you because I need to take time for me this week to walk myself back into the light so when I return to making our bets I can do so with clarity and confidence.
I did bet for us this past Friday, again with success though by Saturday when my kitty ZoeBob began getting worse, I did bet and the shadowed mindset resulted a loss. (Will post the bets made these two days upon my return).
I close sharing a silly picture recently taken of my kitty Chili and just below this, a cute photo of ZoeBob and something I found on the internet when searching for handling the loss of a pet:
The loss of a pet is devastating, and many pet owners find the grief associated with the loss of a pet just as or even more challenging than the loss of human loved ones. People who do not experience the deep love and companionship of a pet find this difficult to understand and may not be able to validate the experience of the person who is grieving. Because the loss of a pet is not experienced in the same universal way that we experience the loss of a human in our lives, pet parents often feel isolated and misunderstood during their grief. When someone’s pet passes, only those who love animals a great deal and regard them as members of the family fully understand the magnitude of this event.
