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.
