August… Wonderful time of the year.
NFL Pre-season has kicked off, College Football is a week away. The FOREX markets withstood my intense desire for substantial time of research preparing for Fall and Winter sessions. Of course, amassing enough pips to remain patient for an extended period has benefits and is priceless.
Yes, shutting down computer, enjoying outside interests and recharging your system works. The heat in Dallas/Ft. Worth is unreal, yet, being surrounded by clean fresh air along with spring like temperatures next week is therapeutic and refreshing.
Focusing on areas outside FOREX markets will be fun. The grind was challenging, but rewarding. I make it a habit to take long weekends every month, taking time away without focusing on markets, was a mindset battle.
Taking some time off next week into first of September will recharge the passion for trading and completing on a daily basis.
Meeting people from various parts of world and listening to their views on life has challenged my thought process through the years. Finding out of the way locations in small towns where the people are superb sparked flashbacks of decades past growing up in small Midwestern area. Spending evenings watching the sun disappear over mountains is awesome. Just hanging out is a term not used since my college days, I believe.
