and, in general, was thinking this would be easy picking for Friday runners. It was also telling me how annoying it is that I tweaked my back, and it was sick of having pain all the time. I moved thru the rest of my morning Trade Psych routine, contemplating my values and whether I had been moving away or toward them this week, this morning, and at the moment, I was practicing.
I learned I was euphoric, thought I would kill it today, my mood was irritable, and I was angry at my back pain, and I had made significant progress in my valued direction this week. I considered all the data, and I decided no trades for me today. The Observer inside me helped me see I needed to be grateful and take a break from the market and heal my back a bit. These were the behaviors that would bring me closer to my goals today, these behaviors were based on my values. Essentially what I give a shit about. What matters to me. We are alone in the market, we need to utilize ourselves to guide us.
So, I stretched, took a nap, went for a walk, tweaked charts, chatted with some trading buddies, and enjoyed the day. I didn’t make a penny today. I didn’t lose one either. And I think, we shall see, I built confidence, competence, and a sense of gratefulness.
I am ready for my short day shrinkin’ peeps tomorrow and enjoy my weekend and why the hell has a stack of rocks become a thing, and an item related to meditating and Instagram and shit. Weird.
Thanks for reading. I have no idea if I keep blogging. I’ll try and come up with some stuff.
