The reboot.
29/07/22 - Optimistic, & very hot from the heatwave that is still ongoing.
So life pulled me away from what I was trying to pursue again, but I am back stronger than before. With a new name that I am finally happy with (Zylith) for the long term; #TransGoals. If you knew how many names it took me just to find a first name I was truly happy with... XD.

I am hoping to really buckle down again on my studies here, & have set a progress goal of reaching a certain level of self-sufficiency by Spring of 2025. I can outline specific PEP goals once I take a thorough look at the badges again.
|~|
I will strive to maintain an attitude of constant improvement. Stronger than I was yesterday. If I keep this mindset in focus, I think I can keep hold of my dreams. Time will tell.

Zylith,
Best wishes for the rest of your journey.
Just remember that failure is merely a stepping stone to success.
The more we fail, the sweeter the success.

Thank you Paul. Though I do not consider it a failure until I have given up, & I never will. These are not failures I have experienced, but merely delays. Success is inevitable.
Staff note (Paul Fookes) :

I have always thought of giving up as quitting, rather than failing.  Many famous people have monumentally failed (not had the outcome they wanted) many times before success - because they never gave up. Well done on your goals.  I always embrace what people can bring to the Permies family table, not what they are and am looking forward to seeing you grow through your permaculture journey.  If you need a hand or chat, please feel free to PM me.
Cheers

I got my first BB in a while up today, greasing some hinges. It is a small step, but an important one. I have been trying to find someone nearby with cows or goats to milk, but so far no one has gotten in contact with me about the posts I put out to look for this. Oh well. Some things will take time. That is the nature of things when you live in the city, & not in a rural area.
