I'm a long term investor. I don't intend to retire for at least a decade. Yes, 2008 was a catastrophe for the stock markets. There has also been times when stocks have experienced strong growth. On average the stock market has performed well. (I think my average growth over the past 10 years has been something like 8-9%, even with the market crash of 2008/2009.)That may be true for 2008/2009. But when you are talking about long-term market trends you can't get too fixated on one short time period. 

This is a perfect strategy and mindset.  Good for you.
