"Do not let fear get in the way of success - the fear of failure is the reason no one follows their dreams."
Yes, we all fail. Sure I could fail
- but how will I know
if I never try
? I do not have 1000% figured out, but who does?
It may be a leased building, or a heated garage, or a bedroom in my house, or an old pig barn. Never know... Anyways, I do intend to open a store in the next few years and considering the progress I have done in under 4 months that was supposed to take me a year, I am sure I can achieve it. I can achieve anything.
: Middle of this year, I took a heavy blow. I felt so cold, so empty, so useless, so worthless. I gave away my 13 fish tanks, some of my fish died due to me being stranded from home (R.I.P to my fish), and I gave away my pets. I lost everything, I did not know what to do. The "now what?" feeling was greater than anything else.
Now what? Well, let's show these jerks what I REALLY
is what I thought, a day after. Let's show him
, that there is nothing that is going to stop me. No one is going to stop me, or slow me down. I've removed the rotted weeds from the garden (translation: terrible people in my life do not exist in my life anymore). I have three 5 gallons, five 10 gallons, a 40 long, a 30 regular, plus numerous under 3 gallons. Slowly I have collected more heaters, filters, fake plants and live plants.
I've gotten a spawn of 229 (remaining) fry, plus will be working on Crowntails and Double Crowns next. not to mention Doubletails, Halfmoons, and Dumbos. That is just the start.... Ebony Bettas
is just the start. I will eventually work on fish that are livebearers (platys, mollies, balloon mollies, fancy guppies, etc) then make my way to danios and other egg layers.
Yes, it will take years. Sure, I could fail. But during these last few months I realized I can do what I want to if I just forget the people who try to take me down bit by bit. I can do what I want to do, if I believe in myself. I don't need others to believe in me, I just needed myself.
If anyone has any ideas to throw out there (types of tanks, stands, selling live plants, or educational purposes, energy saving ideas aka electricity, water, etc) go ahead and post ^_^ Any "you're going to fail" or "You know this is ridiculous" posts will have the poster blocked. I don't have time for that, sorry
Oh! I may also do sketches for money to go towards breeding to be able to have more time focused on breeding. Depending what else I can find, I may do things like jewellery, sewing, cross-stitch, sculptures, etc.
Here I will keep YOU updated on progress. Anything I find that can be useful, any information, anything and everything!
