Dear Once Upon a Summer Dream,

I never kissed or even hugged the first girl that burned a passionate and lasting hole in my heart. I met a girl a long time on the last night of the party during the 4th of July a long time ago. She came out of state and I live in Minnesota. After a few slow dances, I said she should come back next year. She said, why don't we write. A few days later, some of my friends said that they saw her at Humboldt High school with her cousins. I figured she and her cousins walked there so I went the public housing nearby and looked for a WA state vehicle, and I found her and spent an afternoon with her and her cousins.

I told her that I would come back another day, if I could get a hug.  I was 15 years old, and was not comfortable asking for more. She followed me to the bus stop and I asked her to go back, which she did. Later on, she said she wanted to hug me then, but I was walking too fast. I never made it back because the day she left, I was out on the farm working. When I got home, my mom told me a girl called me 7 times that day.

In her first letter to me, she said, "I love you and misses you very much." We wrote each other for a year, and, all that time, I hope she would return to Minnesota. She never returned, at least in time. I still can remember the pain that little boy felt due to wanting something so much. We broke up or she ask that we break up, and what can I say. but had to agree and set her free.  When she finally graduated from high school, she wrote me to ask if I am still available. Unfortunately, at the time I was dating my future ex-wife. She soon found a very handsome and loving man and married as well, and is still happily married.

I am reminded of the quote from the movie 'Field of Dreams' that goes "We just don't recognize life's most significant moments while they're happening. Back then I thought, "Well, there'll be other days." I didn't realize that that was the only day."

If I do not enter according to my trading plan, then I am disregard sound reason and logic. If I do not follow my plan by letting my trades ride, then I am stealing from myself the full potential of a trade. If I do not exit according to my plan, then I taking too little and giving away too much, and it will show itself in my long term results.  Therefore:

1. Enter only according to my plan
2. Stay in the trade according to my plan
3. Exit only according to my plan

And accept all results so that I may learn to do it better going forward.

My vision and goal is to one day trade 1000 contracts regularly this way, with no expectations of results.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" - Isaiah 6:8-13

A goodbye from a someone who is leaving my life:

"You are the greatest thing to have happened to me during my lowest point and I will always be grateful to have shared that journey with you."

Instead of allowing our unhappiness to grind love and friendship to zero or less, we should learn to leave things so that we remember each other well for our journey in which time passes through us.

One of my favorite lines from a movie:

"How did you just become more beautiful in the last 20 seconds?" - from the movie, 'The Space Between us'

A poem shared by my amazing date last night.

I donít love you as if you were a rose

I donít love you as if you were a rose of salt, topaz,
or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:
I love you as one loves certain obscure things,
secretly, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that doesnít bloom but carries
the light of those flowers, hidden, within itself,
and thanks to your love the tight aroma that arose
from the earth lives dimly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you directly without problems or pride:
I love you like this because I donít know any other way
        to love,
except in this form in which I am not nor are you,
so close that your hand upon my chest is mine,
so close that your eyes close with my dreams.

Pablo Neruda
1904 Ė 1973

Per the book '101 Essays that will change the way you think' by Brianna Wiest, our minds do not know the difference between right and wrong. It only knows the difference between comfortable and uncomfortable. Thus, we will reach for comfortable, even when it's wrong.

"What will I do with no fear?"

Question of the day: "Do you actually have a plan that will work when applied, or you can learn from to make it better, or are you just hoping that it will work?"

If you want to show your love for someone, use kind words, and they will remember your love and kindness all their lives. If you want to hurt someone, also use kind words, and they will hurt themselves all their lives as they will miss your love and kindness from their lives. Therefore, whether you want to show love or whether you want to hurt someone, always use kind words.

"My best skill was that I was coachable. I was a sponge and aggressive to learn." - Michael Jordan
