I forgot a big one this morning.

Mexico is now mostly all 'yellow' color... everything opening up. I am really grateful for that!! More fun and more options.

WHAT? Really? Is it another great day ahead of us filled with intriguing price action twists and turns?

Grateful for some LBR wisdom:
#1 - "Trading is not an intellectual game. You can’t “out-think” the market. Analyzing and predicting the markets is not nearly as important as learning how to react to what the markets actually do. Stay involved in the process of making the right decisions at each moment, and let go of worrying about the outcome. Take each trade one at a time and manage it to the best of your ability at that moment. Trust your judgment."
#2 - "Concentration, routine, and ritual are the most powerful tools at your disposal to help ward off distractions and eliminate the emotions and anxieties that hinder good performance."
#3 - "In order to be profitable, you must learn how to win the real game: the mental side of the business. This includes recognizing the importance of having a game plan, the incredible role that patience plays (waiting for conditions to be just right before entering a trade), and the tremendous amount of mental fortitude it takes to endure the slow times."

BONUS - LBR on the importance of APPRECIATION - "Trading is the ultimate lesson in attitude. Every day we can choose to criticize all the things we didn't do right, or we can marvel at the abundance of opportunity the market provides for us."

What makes you tick at your end, guys?

#1, 2 and 3 - it is so good, so blissful, to be free of everything - of the past and the future, but the present as well.

Bathing my face in the morning light,
Returning to the breath,
Dropping everything,
There is bliss beyond compare.

Thank you so much IQ.

Today I identified a major spiritual error that I have been making... since forever. In the process of correction... and that always brings growth, happiness, peace, and joy.

Send a PM on it if you feel like doing that. I greatly benefit from the various insights you have always been so generously offering.

#1 - Life is a freeroll, and how amazing is that? I don't remember 'earning' my existence, do you? It is a gift of the Universe / God. So what is there to complain about?... which takes me to the second point
#2 - Good Life - BLAST IT. This song has very good vibes that will lift you up.
#3 - Can happiness be as simple as hearing the bird singing outside my window? YES, IT CAN. And if we cannot find it in the present moment, then we cannot find it. Happiness does not live in the memories of the past nor in the imaginings about the future. It is here now.

What are YOU appreciating right now??

#1 - It's Monday!! My favorite day. What great trades will I make today... hmmm....
#2 - Discovered an Olympic-size swimming pool walking distance from where I live. Can't wait to check it out.
#3 - Will be going to Playa Delfines, the best beach in Cancun later today, after a long time. Open now. On that note, Mexico will soon have herd immunity (IMO), so everything will be completely open, which will be nice.
#4 - Reading Henri Charriere's Banco, the Further Adventures of Papillon, loving it.
#5 - Love watching Isildur1, his fearlessness at the table, real inspiration.

What is making YOU tick this morning?

So please, feel free to post with me on this thread 3 things that you appreciate or are grateful for every morning before trading.[/B] They can be simple things or complex things, specific things or general things... whatever makes you feel good inside.

Cool thread, I'm in.

1) I'm grateful for all the awesome people in my life, especially Life Partner Amy and Dog Josie
2) I'm grateful for the developmental opportunities that trading presents; introspection, self-improvement, focus, belief, persistence
3) I'm grateful for egg drop coffee

Well, I had loss making day today but I'm thankful for my better sense which prevailed and I didn't dive into revenge trading.

Today I'm thankful for:

1. This thread finding new life, looked like it was losing stream
2. Sticking to my trading plan this week, and learning from past mistakes one by one.
3. A sunny week and a forecasted sunny week ahead. Winter is right around the corner so any nice weather is very much appreciated right now.
4. Getting more into daily meditation. I would have been the person rolling their eyes at someone 5 years ago if they told me they meditate, and yet here I am. It's good to grow and try things.
5. Aganami for starting this thread

I haven't been posting much as I have been rather overwhelmed by several things including:
- got Covid SECOND time (Mexico lol). Better experience, much milder symptoms, I am not sure if I got immunity now, but the body has responded better
- death of a pet, Rony, what a sweetheart, went into a very painful seizure and then passed the next day
- survived Cat. 4 hurricane that touched down some time ago here in Cancun. You hide inside your house and pray that windows hold (they did)
- been having additional health problems...etc.

DESPITE all this, I feel nothing but gratitude for my life, particularly the ability to meditate and to access states of peace and joy consistently. Namo tassa bhagavato arahato samma sambuddhassa.

Peace, joy and love to everyone

I'm sorry to hear that, looks like that you've got a lot of bad things at the same time.

My best wishes and get well soon...there are better times to come!
