Events will never define you. Events can never define you. They are momentary fleeting apparitions. Be centered in yourself and recognize that the only power of definition in your reality, is you. All events are neutral in nature. They do not have an inherent charge. The apparent charge of any event, whether positive or negative, is in the eye of the observer – you. Meaning, judgement, definition are all attributes you impose on what you’re observing. Event’s don’t shape you. Your interpretations of those events shape you. So, ultimately, you shape yourself by the interpretations, definitions, and meanings you create and accept inside yourself moment after moment. You are completely Self defined, self authored, self shaped and so on. Own this.
