Flourishing

Last week msn.com listed a Top Ten signs of longevity. I scored pretty low, but the last sign really stuck:

Sign: You're a Flourisher
About 17 percent of Americans are flourishers, says a study in American Psychologist. They have a positive outlook on life, a sense of purpose and community, and are healthier than "languishers"—about 10 percent of adults who don't feel good about themselves. Most of us fall somewhere in between. "We should strive to flourish, to find meaning in our lives," says Corey Keyes, Ph.D., a professor of sociology at Emory University. "In Sardinia and Okinawa, where people live the longest, hard work is important, but not more so than spending time with family, nurturing spirituality, and doing for others."

You are so totally a flourisher -- no doubt about it!!!

I don't know how I missed this when you posted it, but it's very, very, very cool!

I'm sure you scored low because you've got so much supposed 'stress' in your life, but whatever. Anyway, however long we both live, it's going to be fabulous!
