Diary Entry #71: Accepting Failure.

Dear diary,

I’ve been thinking a lot and realized that I had to come to terms with a few things. One of the things that it pains me to accept the most is that…I failed. Back in 2020 when everything was shut down, I was given a chance. I was able to stack up and save from stimulus checks and other funds, so when the time came to either go back to working at the theater or not once they were opening back up, I decided to take a chance to become my own boss. I bought what I needed to start my shop, created a website, and opened it.

I received sales for the first two weeks and then it stopped and remained that way. Everything went downhill from there, ultimately leaving me to close my shop with a bunch of leftover blank mugs and equipment (which both are still sitting as we speak). After trying multiple times to get rid of these excess mugs alone and looking at all the equipment and boxes purchased, I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that I failed. I’m still debating whether I failed as a creator overall, but I certainly failed as a shop owner. Accepting failure is the first step and it’s okay to say I failed. I have to admit, it does hurt, but it also happens to a lot of people at the same time. The only thing is, now I don’t know what will happen next. I still have everything so there’s still somewhat of a chance to try again, but only time will tell.
