The Elements

There’s a difference between surviving and thriving. Make your choice wisely.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Just imagine 

If you breathed the air

Touched the Earth

Ate the sun 

Saw the beauty 

And heard your spirit 

Do you know how strong you would be?

Now, just imagine 

If you breathed every breath, deeply, as if it were your last 

Grasped the earth and felt eternity in every touch

Savored the flavor of the taste of fire 

Saw the magic and beauty of every moment

And heard the spirits and inner voices of all 

There’s a difference between surviving and thriving. Make your choice wisely.
