Life as a Psychologist: 50 Things I Learned During Age 50

A year ago, I wrote a blog called “Life as a Psychologist: On Turning 50.” I’m continuing the theme with a list of 50 things I’ve learned over the past year. These items are in no particular order and are considered a work in progress!

  1. Less makeup, more breakfast.CalmUp® photo of Lorie in red coat
  2. Even when people stop following you, tweet anyway.
  3. Make love, not war.
  4. Be present for my son after school.
  5. Keep the day job (for the time being).
  6. Do what I love, and let go of the outcome.
  7. Follow your heart, even when it seems impossible.
  8. Make time to call, text, and email the people I love.
  9. Think before I speak. (Yes, it took until age 50 to start to get this).
  10. Don’t let fear keep me from following my passion. (This is similar to #6).
  11. Speak my truth and stay genuine. People relate to being real.
  12. Connect with my own spirituality and breathe mindfully at every opportunity.
  13. Even though I don’t like to market myself, I can market what I believe in.
  14. If I don’t have something meaningful to post on Facebook, I won’t post anything at all.

When you’re working on a project and believe it needs to be a certain way, and then someone else says it needs to be another way, can you see that both ways work?

Spring is Here: Renew Recharge Reclaim

This is the photo for the CalmUp® blog April 17, 2013 titled "Spring is Here: Renew Recharge Reclaim"

Spring in Colorado means snow. Renew?

In some States, there has been some perilous flooding. Recharge?

Around the globe, there’s considerable warfare. Reclaim?

Have you ever considered commanding nature or limiting international hostility? Such wishful thinking may leave you feeling ineffective.

Rather than trying to control what’s outside of you, why not build your personal power? Taking a CalmUp® Journey is one path (and a simple one at that!) to assist in monitoring your beliefs, thoughts, behaviors, and choices. As you may already know, every CalmUp® Journey begins with a “How can I…” question.

Below are the current sample “How can I…?” questions on the Your Sample Questions page of the www.DrLorieGose.com website. The questions are classified under eight life categories.

Personal

  • How can I be aware of when I’m controlling others?
  • How can I improve my confidence?

Relationship

  • How can I keep my marriage strong while I go through this difficult part of my life?
  • How can I honor this person in this moment?

Family

  • How can I facilitate family communication so that everyone’s voice is heard?

We’re taught that time is finite and how we’re all given the same 24 hours. What would it mean to you if you learned that time is infinite? For instance, what would you do with an extra 15, 30, or more minutes per day?
