This week’s Forex psychology article will be a short one while my family and I cope with the loss of a loved one, or should I say, loved thing. Last Thursday, we returned home from a trip that flew us across half of the U.S. and back. After getting settled and finally deciding to tackle the excitingly fun task of unpacking our bags, we were horrified to find, or rather, not find, one of our most prized possessions… our personal laptop!
We decided early on in the day that the darned thing was too heavy to lug around the airport for hours and hours. Not giving it a second thought, we threw it in our soon-to-be check-in luggage with the rest of our goodies. We had never had any problems with luggage before, so why should we worry.
It was nowhere to be found! Missing… nothing… lost!
We searched again.
Socks and undies…check.
Dirty socks and undies… double-check!
Laptop… no check.
