Strength does not come from physical capacity.

It comes from an indomitable will.

Growth, right where you are

As James Oppenhein says in the poem I posted today, “the wise grows it under his feet.” When someone is dealing with chronic pain their only thought is whats happening down the road, how do they get rid of the pain, the mental taxation that is being placed on them and yes on their loved…

The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance,

the wise grows it under his feet.
