Finally its December and its generally the time I like to reflect on the year, however, I never really write it down, as back in the day it was just me talking to myself. Considering now I have somewhat of a small cult like following on the interwebs, I feel it may be good for other traders/people to read about my reflections as it may resonate with others.
For me December is not only a reflection month but it is the time of year in which my birthday comes to fruition and I will be turning 27 years old (or young), to be witty. January of 2016 this year started off a lot better then my January two years ago. Two January’s ago I lost my mom; the person who I loved with all my heart and a giant void was left. Then the January there after, I felt the void and it left me numb, but I got to fill it by teaching others about the market. That human social interaction and interconnectedness really helped me cope with the abyss/void that was left in my soul. So even though my students back then would be thankful to me, for all the one on one time I spent with them, little did they know that they also helped me more then words could describe. I think it is human nature to pity ones self, when bad things happen, but you must persevere and turn all those emotions outwards and put it into your work and family. You never want to let the bitterness or hate seep into your soul, when bad things happen, as it will destroy you from the inside out.
Anyways, I digress. This year Tim Sykes and his family, along with Anthony (AKA @WolfMillion on twitter), invited me to go on a trip with them to Turks and Caicos on a private jet, which was not only amazing, but it also helped kind of get me out of my one year funk. The rays of sunshine down there seem to brighten me back up. Granted I’m not the bubbliest person on the planet but it helped me find some balance. Outside of Tim’s gracious invite, Tim’s family was there, which also helped brighten the days. I like Tim Sykes, but I love his family even more. I wish I could adopt them as my own family, they are truly amazing people with a great sense of humor. I cannot describe it, we just click.
