Rambling Thoughts Of An Old Psychologist
I’m a psychologist, prone to thinking deeply.
I have a mind always in wonder of the human mind. I find myself frequently sitting down on the bench in my backyard and just thinking. Pondering.
Heaven knows there’s not much else to do at my age and physical condition. I still don’t understand the fascination of being glued to a television all day. All my years studying and talking of the different theories about different stages of life, and here I am nearing the end.
That imagery of life flashing before your eyes becomes more and more real to me every day. Have I lived a meaningful and successful life? Have I completed all of my assignments here on this Earth?
I always end up in a place of thanking God and smiling.
Yes, yes, I have. Never did the young 25-year-old me realize how I'd be helping hundreds of people transform their lives. I've counseled and treated a range of people through the years. The most exciting ones for me were always the family therapy sessions where I began to see broken pieces fall back into place.
I’m satisfied with what I’ve been able to accomplish. I’ve helped many. Maybe I haven’t done everything (like flying to the moon), but I’m glad have had the life and impact that I have had.
What about everyone else here?
What are you most proud of accomplishing within your lifetime?
