Survive definition: continue to live or exist, especially in spite of danger or hardship. (

To remain alive or in existence; live on; to continue to function or prosper (Merriam-Webster)

Sure, you can exist, after hardship, danger, the death of a loved one, but are you really living? Are you following your passion(s)?

I, personally, am not living with hardship, danger, or death, but I’m not truly living, either.  I work, come home, feed the cats, drink a bottle of wine, have a cigarette, flip through my Facebook feed, and then go to bed.  Get up and do it again.  Very occasionally I will get together with work colleagues.  Blah.  This is not what I envision for myself.  I don’t want to just survive ….. I want to thrive.
