You're the Boss

No matter what frustrations and indignities erode our sense of outer worth on the job, inside we remain vividly alive. No matter how insecure our tenure at work, no one can hand a pink slip to our soul. No one can say to our inner life, "You're fired!" I will say it again: You are the boss of your inner life. You really are.
