Do not let yourself be defined by your job or paycheck. Don’t surrender yourself to opinion and judgement. Don’t succumb to the horrible nightmares that await each and every one of us as we blindly navigate the rich, dense, dark, wilderness of life. Remember, even while you stand high atop the mountains–lord of your personal kingdom–that storms and time wear everything away, even the prominence beneath your feet dissolves against the curse of time. So be defined by nothing other than being, for doing anything else is to live a lie.
