You own your life. You have power over yourself. You choose what kind of individual you want to be. The self-realized individual, the one who realizes their potential, is something to be reckoned with. We are all like little gods, masters of our domains, and we each have the power over our little universes that are our lives. What do you want to do? What do you want out of life? Where do you want to go? How much power have we been given to control our own lives? A lot. Although we must spend a large portion of our time on mundane matters, we all have a good amount of time to change, grow, and pursue what sparks our interests. Change what you can, leave the rest to the birds.
