Do you ever wonder if you're thriving or surviving? This has always been an intriguing question to me because I never really understood what it meant. I finally went and looked up the definition of thrive (duh, why didn't I think of that sooner???) and it makes perfect sense now:
1. to prosper; be fortunate or successful.
2. to grow or develop vigorously; flourish
I don't really care for definition #1, but #2 – yep, that hits the nail on the head for me when I think of thriving in terms of life, business, relationships, etc.! Another way to think about thriving that makes sense to me is living life to the fullest; I mean if you're thriving wouldn't you be living life to the fullest? I think so.
In 45 Ways To Live Life To The Fullest, numbers 6, 7, & 8 are ones I really try to work on every. single. day. #6 is especially hard because that's what I did for 90% of my life, so changing that habit is hard. Then again, change is just hard (but worth it). And #12 on the list goes right along with 6.
