    1. I'm a lot wiser than I was a year ago. (but is it enough?) 2. These tax losses will come in handy in future years. (hopefully)
    3. Have crossed off lots of things not to try again. (How many left?)
    4. Cost of living is down. (but inflation around the corner?)
    5. Not as many loud mouth, big shots at the club. (I really need to sell MY membership.)

    add some more if you can. Stosh
  2. 6. Only post direct trading topics in the trading forum.

    i can't quite put my finger on it, but in a way, this downturn has its up side. there was too much consumption...bad for the planet. also, bad for humans. emphasis on the wrong things.


    i think you have the right idea. an attitude of gratitude makes one look at what one does have, and we tend to overlook it.:D :D

    If you still have your job and don't have a ton of debt this recession is great. Everything is on sale and businesses are rediscovering the art of customer service which was lost during the bubble money years.
