The Perfect Day

I was poking around other blogs yesterday and came across a post regarding the subject of 'your perfect day'. If you had nothing holding you back, exactly how do you envision your perfect day going? From what time you get up, what you have to eat, what sort of smells are present, what do you do, etc. Write it all down. Don't worry about how or why, just envision how you would want your day to go and write/type it out. This goes along with my recent post about the Secret and the Law of attraction, what you envision and concentrate on, you attract to you.

I started to instantly get a visual of how my perfect day would go as soon as I started to read the post, so thought I would share it here as it was unfolding. I figure this will help me put together a dream board soon as well, because I can incorporate some of what I'm about to detail below. So let's begin...

My perfect day would start out around 8:45-9am waking up on my own, fully refreshed and invigorated to the sound of the ocean with a nice tropical breeze. The air would have that fresh ocean breeze smell that just smells so good when you take in a nice deep breath. I envision being on the second or third floor of a home in the Florida keys or someplace very similar with nice bright blue water and a panoramic deck with a view of the water on all sides.

I would begin my day with some fresh fruit and would start right out on my day analyzing the stock market and the activities that happened in the world over night. My 'job' would be to trade stocks and I would be very good at it. I would start to analyze things from 8:45-9:30 prior to the market open and would actively trade the right opportunities between 9:30-11:30am.

From 11:30am-1:30pm I would take the time to shower up, if I haven't already, and head out to lunch at a local place overlooking the water and would probably have some sort of blackened fish sandwich with some red beans/rice. There would be a nice tropical breeze, with great water views and even some dolphins or manatees close by.

I'd return home to recap my activity from the morning and see where things are at in the market between 1:30-2pm. From 2pm-4pm I would trade the market into the close as opportunities present themselves.

At 4pm when the markets close until 4:30 or 5pm, I'd grab a quick snack and recap my trades from the day, making note of what worked, what didn't and adjust my game plan for the next day accordingly. Around 4:45 or 5pm I would get in a workout, either nice long walk along the water or workout on my home gym until around 5:30-5:45. Then I'd shower up if needed and prepare for dinner....Dinner would be at home most nights on our covered upper level deck overlooking the water. Some areas would be screened in to allow the kitties to join us and come and go from the indoors to the outdoors as they please.

After a nice relaxing dinner, we'd take a walk or just enjoy the view/sunset to unwind. After sunset I'd check out my stock shows or the online recaps to see what might move the markets the next day. We'll watch a TV show or two, either in one of the outdoor areas or inside and then wind things down and turn in for the night between 11-12.

On a weekend day, we would spend our time exploring around town, check out a park, do some snorkeling, take a nice leisurely ride in a small boat that we had access to, head to the beach, check out some outdoor music at places overlooking the water and just enjoy the laid back atmosphere that is part of the culture in the surrounding area.

Ahhh.....just thinking about that makes me happy! I now have a much better idea of what I want to put on my dream board. The 'job' portion will allow me the ability to work from anywhere in the world with a good good internet connection and computer(s), which is something I always mention when I envision my future. I also just identified the subject of the book I want to get to read for our upcoming vacation to the Dominican Republic.

I've decided on Trend Trading for a Living. It sounds like exactly what I'm looking for based on the reviews. It sounds like it will present a system that you can easily understand and follow to help you pick certain stocks to trade, identifying entry and exit points. I am currently reading Come Into My Trading Room which is a good book also and it sounds like it may have some slight overlap, but I think both books will be complimentary and help me become a better, more systematic trader.

One other thing I envision, which doesn't really go along with a perfect day, but does go along with a more perfect life in the future is wanting the ability to travel anywhere on short notice if I desire. I'd like to be able to take a vacation for a week on short notice, like to be able to travel to visit relatives for a weekend, go wherever whenever we want to. In order to do that I also envision having someone that we trust greatly that would come take care of our cats more than just 2 visits a day like our pet sitter does now. It would have to be more of a house sitting situation if we were to travel a lot more often so we wouldn't feel guilty for leaving them home alone and they would get lots of attention.

Hopefully that helped you to layout your perfect day! If you have a blog, post about your perfect day and send a link. If not, leave a comment and put it there. Would love to here how your perfect day would go!

I love this post. I like how you can plan it out to the minute. I honestly don't think I could do that yet. Very cool to try to think about though.

Still haven't started my new dream board yet, so you'll probably beat me there.
