I decided to do a search on Thriving and psychology. I stumbled on someone’s list as to what she believe thriving is..
I read her list. I agree with some, I disagree with others. I am starting to realize I do have my own definition of thriving.
Another article I found links Thriving with Resilience. 22 pages of small writing. Author has a lot to say but It is written on a level that is difficult to read. Is thriving only for the elite?
One psychologist feels thriving is so important that she named her business thrive.
I found several other psychologist selling classes on thriving.
verb (used without object), thrived or throve, thrived or thriven
[thriv–uh n] (Show IPA), thriving.1. to prosper; be fortunate or successful.
2. to grow or develop vigorously; flourish:The children thrived in the country.
So why the title “Doing the Impossible?” When one is diagnosed with Severe PTSD chances for thriving are not too hot. Read through any of the symptoms and realize that most people with PTSD have multiple symptoms over long periods of time, even if it is not forever it feels that way. Walt Disney quote that I posted in my office for many years:
“It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.” – Walt Disney
