I would say that most people who actively write on Hubpages are thriving in a way. I certainly consider myself to be thriving.
Interesting. It would be fun to explore this a little more. Do you mean that because people are expressing themselves and interacting with others they are thriving in a way?
I associate thriving with flourishing, radiating vibrancy, aliveness, full participation with the whole of life.
It is helpful to have answers like yours, for me to gain an understanding of how other people feel about the measure of thriving.
Not long ago I thought I was beginning to thrive but now I am back to feeling I'm just surviving.
There are areas in my life where I am thriving, but there is a few area that I can truthfully say I am just surviving!
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.
Definitely surviving. I have been all of my life. Somehow I thought I'd be further along at age forty.
Life is what you make of it. Your attitude oftentimes determine how you feel about life. It also determines how you approach it. read more
As long as I have good health I feel that I am thriving. I am far from rich and live a simple life, material things don't matter to me and I am fine with that.
Yes, I agree. The richest moments in my life have been when I had no money. And if I had had money, those moments would not have happened.
You have an interesting username, europewalker. Do you walk through Europe? Will check out your profile....
In the last 6 months I have:
got a new job,
bought a house with my wife,
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!!
Very Happy for you. Great Achievements. Happy Married & shiny Life.
That is fantastic, Dan. A high five to you.
I especially like that you expressed the actions you have taken which have resulted in a feeling of thriving. Inspiring!
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.
Surviving. For a while I was drowning. Lately I'm surviving. Hubpages helps.
I'm not sure if the question relates to finances or life in general, but my answer applies to both.
Life is a wonderful if you make it so thriving I am and always felt that way because happiness makes me feel more positive during my darkest moments.
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.
I am striving. No time to wonder whether I am thriving or merely surviving, LOL.
