Know your path at all times.

Don't waste your day in hate or fear.
Spend each precious moment enjoying or searching for the good in life.
Make it a habit.

Being a coding dinosaur isn't as bad as I thought it would be. After 30 years of writing software I still get a real charge out of creating something from nothing.
It's a challenge to learn yet another way of twiddling bits, but it's worth the effort. And you get to work with creative, supportive people who love their job. It's a wonderful life all in all.
