Throwing a chair across the basketball court…Slamming a fist through a wall…The frustration when someone cuts you off in traffic…Those feelings you get when someone tells a trusted secret…How a child feels when dad doesn’t come home.

What does it mean to thrive or flourish in life? In a world where everything seems to be overanalyzed and word-smithed through a lens of political correctness or cultural relevance, is it OK to prosper?
