Strength

Because your own strength is unequal to the task, do not assume that it is beyond the powers of man; but if anything is within the powers and province of man, believe that it is within your own compass also.

– Marcus Aurelius

I spent the whole day with my stuck three year old, alternately worrying about her and working. Now that I have the opportunity, I’m out of the house, drinking a mint tea and waiting to go to the dojo. I don’t feel like it and don’t feel up to it but, as with cultivation of the mind, it just doesn’t matter.
