I got this done for multiple reasons: I have a crazy obsession with fish, I think they’re the most beautiful creatures. As a kid I always had beta fish. Also since I was little I suffered with really bad anxiety and one of the ways my parents knew how to make me relax was to let me watch fish swim. Something about the way the moved through the water has always calmed me. This year I’ve fought my anxiety to the fullest, I no longer bite my nails (which was a big sign that I was anxious) and I’m more social. Every day is a battle with anxiety, but I got this pretty little fish to remind myself that I can make it through what ever the world throws at me.
I got this done yesterday (3/24/2011) by Amanda at Aartistic Inc. in Winooski, Vermont.
