I was debating what word starting with K could possibly relate to Thriving in Life which is the theme for my AtoZ Challenge this year. I thought of knowledge, karma, kinetic and kindness but was uninspired by any of these words. As I sat on my balcony on a gorgeous Monday morning, I was looking at the beautiful blue sky, the waves rolling in and suddenly swirling around in my head was the word – KEY.
I reflected on this word and realised that each of us hold the key to thriving in our life. Sure we can LISTEN, READ and LEARN from others, but unless we put things into ACTION then our life will NOT CHANGE and we certainly will not THRIVE and GROW.
Key to Thriving in life is YOU
In an article I read in Study Finds Simple Key to Thriving: Feeling Good About Your Life. Dr. Daniel Brown, a sport and exercise scientist at the University of Portsmouth in the United Kingdom studied previous literature and research undertaken on thriving in life and found that put simply, we need to ‘foster a sense of development and positive feelings about our life.
It is all about Choice and whether you want to make changes in your life in order to be happy and thriving.
I found these 3 quotes which may help us to realise our potential and recognise that thriving in life is up to us – no one can do it for us, we have to open that door ourselves. Life may not always go to plan but it is the choices we make in life – sometimes good, sometimes not so good which determines what kind of life we have.
