Index4Index challenge featuring our bebe Bon

Thank you @jongolson for this wonderful challenge. See the details on Let's Try Something New.....We'll Call It #Index4Index.


I know I committed myself to doing the #Index4Index challenge once a week, but I skipped last week, as I felt that I was not ready to move forward in my journey. In addition to being motivational, I'm now using the challenge to help me in my life's journey towards healing and creating new beginnings.

I will admit that the past year has not been easy on me. Mom is such a big part of my life that losing her left me at a standstill. The situation has changed and it is a permanent loss. I know she's in a better place. I'm just saddened that she's no longer with me. I still avoid looking back at times when we shared happy moments, as it adds to my sadness. Most days I'm okay esp. when I focus on the here and now. I try to keep it that way. I do not want to remain sad, and I know that's something I can control. I'd rather focus on things that I can change.

This quote spoke to me when I found it. I feel that it would be a good addition to my life's journey. Sometimes, it's in the small and simple things that we find healing for the mind, body, and soul. Play, laughter, and joy -- I intend to embody and incorporate them in my daily living. Healing is a process. I know all will be well in due time.

Posing with today's quote is Bon. Lately, he's been moping around a bit more. I do wonder if he's feeling sad too. Mostly I think he's trying to evade the other cats who seem to be in his favorite places. I hope to find out more on what's bothering him.

That's it for today. See you around next time...

Remember that every day is a new beginning.

I am sorry to hear about the loss of your mom.
I can relate to the pain. It has been six years since my father left us. The void is still there.
Focusing on now and here gives us the spirit to live.
Many prays for you and your mom

Thank you so much for your words of encouragement. I appreciate you. 😊😊
True that the void will always be there. We do have a choice whether to stay in grief or pick up the pieces slowly and rebuild.
Take care and happy weekend! 🙂🙂

Rebuilding is important. We still have people around us who deserve our love. If we stay in grief of those who left us, those would be neglected who are with us today.

The quote is really very beautiful and fitting. Even in sad times we have to try to laugh, play and enjoy life.
The loss of your mother must have been very hard for you, but I think it is admirable how you are trying to look forward. Such a wound will never heal completely, but it will certainly get easier with time.
I wish you all the best and many cheerful moments!
