When I was younger, I thought to “thrive” meant achievement, popularity, fame – all the positives you can think of.
Of late, my perspective has changed – one of the benefits of aging. When I chose to broaden my thinking, I can see that life has more dimensions. It’s not a matter of this or that alone, black or white, two opposing extremes.
These days to “thrive” for me means…
Living more with lesser possessions
Finding new friends in the midst of being disconnected from close friends and family
Flexing myself to the max to survive and discovering that I’m more resilient that I thought
Choosing to chill when my life is in seemingly unending flux
Do I have to end with five new meanings for “thrive?”
Let me be unconventional and end with four. . .
If you were to add the fifth, what would it be?
