I may not have much but I am thriving. I have a roof over my head, a bed to sleep in and food to eat. What else do you need? It's all in how you conceive life to be. I don't hardly make any money but enough to pay my bills and work 7 days a week. I wouldn't want to be rich, I like being poor and living a simple life. By living simple you appreciate the little things in life much better than most. Being poor and humble is better than being rich and not humble. Makes for a better world.
I agree, thriving does not necessarily have to do with having money or even good health, though both can be appreciated. Simple living can be beautiful. I also feel I am thriving when I am using my gifts and being creative.
In the last 6 months I have: got a new job, got married, bought a house with my wife, gone vegetarian, given up smoking, joined a gym (and actually started attending it!), started meditating daily, started writing seriously, started growing some of my own food...
On balance, I think thriving just about sums up the situation... oh and thanks for making me realise what an awesome year I'm having!!
Indeed... it is, of course, more messy and complicated than that as real life tends to be... but it is satisfying to see the changes in my life that I have enacted through my choices taking a positive effect. Truly gratifying.
I am thriving. It is interesting to view this, because technically I am what our society would title successful. I am to me though. I thrive because I love life. I have my basic needs covered, and not letting society control me, or government. I am slowly taking myself off the grid, and moving more and more into global consciousness. I am rewiring my brain, because I know as a fact we do create what we think. This has helped me to stay out of worry, and keep in the place of gratitude. I thrive also because I learned I am totally responsible for what is happening in my life, so finger pointing, blame and excuses are not permitted.All of this has moved me out of survival, and completely into embracing life fully.
