Sur-thrive. That’s the word Carrie Fisher used in a latest interview with the New York Times (It’s an interview with Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds together). I just found that word so fitting to what I’m trying to do. It’s like I don’t want to just survive if I’m going to live a life, but at this point in time, I’m trying to survive to thrive—thus, ‘sur-thrive.’
Here’s a small excerpt from the interview that I found pretty funny:
Q. Just to clarify, do you suffer from manic depression or bipolar disorder?
FISHER They say bipolar now. It’s the same as manic depression. I think manic depression is more descriptive. Bipolar sounds like a gay bear.
