Buy The Dip

The stock market looks pretty gloomy. When I open up my investment accounts, yes…it hurts. But still, I keep calm and invest on 🙂

I love Netflix, so much 🙂 But I recently just sold the stock. Why? They’ve created some great original content, true. The price they paid? HIGH. In order to make money, you must spend money. Valid, true. But, I have a feeling it has the same fate as Snapchat. A much bigger and more profitable company will outrank you. All of Snaps original features, Facebook took them and made them even better. I personally can’t stand Facebook and I hate that they took over Instagram. Facts are, big fish will always eat the little fish. But who knows, Netflix has room to expand and grow in other countries. They can easily hike up their prices for more cash flow. Or create a great movie and put it in theaters first. It’s just a little too risky for me.

I have a couple of new stocks I’d like to add to my portfolio.

I have my eye on Disney currently. They have been working on becoming your go-to for media streaming. Disney is a BIG FISH. They’ve been around for a long time and have continued to evolve with the times. They are going to move all their movies off Netflix and of course, start adding Disney created content to their platform. Netflix is in the red. Sure they have periods of upside…but Disney overall is a strong company. Continue reading “Buy The Dip”

What I Hope For You Going Into 2019

I hope that you let go…

Let go of mistakes you made. Maybe you reacted badly and hurt someone. Maybe you had a little too much to drink one night and screwed up your presentation the next morning. Maybe you failed an exam or cheated on your boyfriend. As troubling as it may have been for you...you royally fucked up…forgive yourself and let go. We can’t change what’s been done.

Let go of him or her that leaves you feeling lonely more than loved. If someone wholeheartedly loves you, they wouldn’t leave your texts unanswered. They wouldn’t make excuses. If someone really wanted you, trust me dear…they would be with you. Let that loneliness go because you are worthy of authentic, true love.

Let go of friends that you once loved but grew apart from. Not everyone is destined to travel the same roads. As you evolve, things around you will change.

Let go of the thought that things stay the same. Nothing…stays the same.

Practice “Being” and not always “Doing”

I’m always doing. Planning, overthinking. What are the next steps? What is the next move? The only time my mind and body really idles is when I’m watching a movie.

“Doing” is innately who I am. I don’t need to be taught or told. I just do.

I even worry about being worried too much 🤦 More fixated on tomorrow than the moment.

I realize this, therefore, living in the moment is a behavior I have to work on. I literally have to “practice being.” For short periods I’m in the flow of just being. Then it turns back into my natural state of “doing.”
