You don't have to buy from anyone.
You don't have to work at any particular job. You don't have to participate in any given relationship. You can choose.
You steer the course you choose in the direction of where you want to be today, tomorrow, or in a distant time to come. You hold the tiller.
You can decide to alter the course of your life at any time. No one can ever take that away from you. You can decide what you want and go after it. It's always your next move.
