Awareness And Thriving - Deepstash

Awareness And Thriving

Thriving is not as instinctual and must be cultivated and nurtured. If we are trying to use pleasant experiences, power, and material possessions to compensate for unpleasant emotions basic to survival, it can’t and doesn’t work. We cannot outrun our mind.

The key to thriving is developing a working relationship with anxiety and anger; then we are able to create the life we want.

Just solving problems doesn’t yield a good life. We must live a good life to have a good life.
