Candid Thoughts on the Bear Market

The wedding is over, phew! Believe me, I couldn't wait to get home to the comfort of my space. My inspiration was already taking a hit and I was drowning in something I can't even explain at the moment. But, one thing is certain, I am back with full force, and I am hoping to pick up the pace where I left it and to convince you that I am addicted to this place.
Source Somehow, I was able to get past those moments of boredom and I could stand missing the comfort of my space for a few more hours because I had the movie, Dynasty, to keep me company.

Somehow, I am already getting bored with it because every time I feel as though I know what's coming, the scriptwriter changes up on me. Uncertainty happens! Yeah! But this Carrington's lifestyle really trumpets this reality in those scenes that I can't help but wonder what the future holds for any of us.

I know that you would feel by now I should be used to things taking a different turn especially when I feel I have a good hold of it. Believe me, life doesn't work that way, it's merciless. No wonder we need to learn the game of chess to go above and beyond! If we did not, we would probably be living in the brutal whim of life as we try to get a glimpse of happiness.

I'm sorry, but, there will always be challenges, the sooner you understand, accept, and respect that, the better person you will be at navigating the uncertainties that come with living.

I know as humans, with all the pains and sufferings that we are passing through, we could really use a bit of good tidings of great joy. I mean good moments that last forever! It's understandable but you should take the market for instance. We have been waiting and hoping for a bull run for a while now and I think I am seeing some of us predicting and shifting the dates further to make ourselves feel better.

I'm not discrediting the essence of being hopeful and waiting for the turns in the market to greens and a favorable position to take profit. Believe me, some of us are not ready to take profit, and we could be your enemy since we would be in church praying against a green offense...I hope you took none.

Yes, some of us are not ready, and we would rather prolong the bleedings and reds so we can accumulate as much as we can to be able to take profit as you would.

Whatever your prayers are, there's one thing you should know. The story of the virgin who had an extra lamp while waiting for the Lord should be a good call. It doesn't matter how long you wait, or whatever disaster or emergency you face as you continue to wait patiently for the bear market to roll into greens, make sure, you have the extra oil waiting, in case, your emergency is a temptation that wants to rid you of the opportunity to enjoy the fruit of your labor.

I know I am not making sense right now but blame that on the tiredness that I am feeling right now. My friend is bent on making sure that I get my badge for the year and I just got off the phone with him nudging and encouraging me to write something.

So, here you go, something that probably makes no sense to you but it does to me.

If you did not find anything of value here, look for the phrase, Extra Oil. Interpret it based on your financial circumstances or whatever it is you are experiencing at the moment, then, you will get your meaning.

For now, hold on tight, this bear market doesn't look like it's going away any time soon. The best you can do is to make the best out of it.

XOXO, iska.
