Things can be as simple as a favorite chair, or an awesome costume.
The life you have is always, and always will be, in flux.
It is up to you to find and surround yourself with the things that keep you steady.
There are safe harbors everywhere in life, so make yourself a map.
Follow that map, and toss an anchor in the storm.
Wait it out, and sail on.
You don't get time back, but that doesn't mean you aren't as free as a bird.
