This month we’ve been talking about freedom. I don’t know about you, but my month hasn’t really felt very free. It’s felt like a lack of freedom, and total confusion. But I’ve had some revelations over the past week and am feeling more confident about freedom now. Today we close out our series on “Free to…” with thoughts on what life is really about: thriving.
Personally I can’t stand living a bland, boring life. I like knowing that I’m living with purpose and doing so much more than getting by. I like knowing that what I do is not just about me, but helps someone else. I like to know that tomorrow will be better than today, or that I at least have the ability to try to have a better day. But so much more than that, I need to do more than just live; I need to thrive.
I have to admit that I’m finally feeling like I need to start thriving in life, and not just surviving. I think so many of us get caught up in surviving that we forget that life is made up of so much more than where we are. But there comes a point in every life, some call it the “midlife crisis,” when we all realize we need something more. Toys and games don’t do it though, what we all need is something more fulfilling.
The good news is that we all have the ability to make changes in our lives and begin living a thriving life-a life full of life, passion and fulfillment. I started making those changes this week, what areas of your life do you need to change in order to thrive?
