I think 'thriving' is the closest I can get.
If someone or something thrives, they do well and are successful, healthy, or strong.
Consider flourish: (ODO)
[no object] (of a living organism) grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, especially as the result of a particularly congenial environment.
‘wild plants flourish on the banks of the lake’
In Taylor's Health and Human Flourishing:
It is clear then, that our flourishing is subject to the vicissitudes of fortune, to disease and disability, to the powers of nature, and to the choices and conduct of others.
