I re-watched The Great Gatsby once again and loved it once again. It had messages that not all people grasped and understood.

When you get married, you become someone's spouse. When you give birth, you become a parent. All these labels represent your situation but not you, because who you are is so much more than that.

Do not desperately follow the green light and wander from your dreams but thrive to become a better you and good things will come to you.
