The day I knew peace is the day I let everything go.

I also feel the peace of mind every time I completed a new breeding cycle, for it means I am assured the continuance of my bloodlines for the subsequent years. Ironically, I can no longer feel the peace of mind to travel abroad and leaving my fishes at home for too many days without worrying about them... my wife quipped that my "true inner peace" would be the day when I am totally free from keeping or breeding any Goldfish :))
Well, that I have to agree and the day will come when I am finally too old to breed Goldfish, but I have already felt so much inner peace that this hobby has brought me so many wonderful friendships. I am proud and confident to say that I have many good and truthful friends... I think I am really lucky to find inner peace amongst true friends and love ones :))
