When Perspective Outranks Attitude

Welcome to episode 8 of Positively Life After Fifty, and Day 2 in my quest to podcast for 30 days straight, #NaPodPoMo. It's been a rocky start to my challenge, but the work will get done, the problems either will get solved or they won't, and ill find a way to make it work somehow. What's more important is that you make time for friends, take time for family, and carve out some time for yourself, to regain a sense of balance and perspective.

Changes, Choices and Challenges

Welcome to an informative, inspiring series for those of us in our forties, fifties and beyond. Today we meet the host and look at the choices and challenges we are met with at this age.

Creating a Positive Life With Positive Thinking

Positive thinking, getting rid of those automatic negative thoughts, what is Pollyanna-ism and how can it help you, these are all part of today's show. We're going to look at how you can have that positive mindset to help you survive and prosper no matter what life throws at you. There are countless examples of people throughout history who had physical, mental, or emotional struggles in life, but instead of letting it define them, and keep them down, they used the opportunities that arose from those afflictions to help others. If you let these automatic negative thoughts control your emotions, then you are likely to follow with a negative action. Maybe that action is a negative response to someone you're talking to, eating something unhealthy, or taking something unhealthy. Maybe your negative thoughts are telling you that you're not good enough, smart enough, or sharp enough. In any case those Automatic Negative Thoughts are keeping you from living the finest life you can have. We...
