Well, it’s been about a three-month break from blogging and social media, and I have to say it’s been rejuvenating. In any life activity that is important, there is a time for stepping back, taking a good look at what you’re doing, and making a fresh start. When we make a fresh start, we can make major life changes, because we’ve broken old patterns and are now ready to build new, positive ones.
Above we can see a picture of our newest rescue cat, Molly Ruth, who is a khao manee, a relatively rare breed of cat. We found her in a shelter, afraid of people and cowering in a corner. Her time in our home has been a fresh start for Molly and she has come out of her shell. We can now play with her, and she has grown fond of the other three cats. What she needed was new experience: she needed to be safe and feel safe and just explore her environment. As that has happened, her personality has blossomed.
Sometimes traders become overwhelmed too, and sometimes they take losses that rock their sense of safety. Sometimes, after hard work, markets change and it seems as though all their progress has disappeared for good. It’s tempting to push forward and push forward, but often that compounds the problem. The better strategy is stepping back, finding new edges in markets, and then–like Molly–making a fresh start.
I’ll be making a fresh start with this blog, taking advantage of the break, and hope that the new slant will be helpful to traders. As long as we can make fresh starts, we can always stay fresh–in trading, in relationships, and in our work.
