There will be things you care about. Keep them few, and small, and light. Don’t let them be taken.
Some things are too big for you to protect, no matter how much you care about them. You can’t keep a whole ocean or a whole year to yourself. So you must be comfortable with that. And you only have so many hands.
Choose your precious little jewels well, but then they’re yours. When you have that day, keep it as you want it. That day may have to carry you for a long time.
