A Little Quote About Fortitude

I came across this quote:

“Fortitude……it means fixity of purpose. It means endurance. It means having the strength to live with what constrains you.” – Hilary Mantel

Fixity of purpose – what an interesting phrase. It lends us to believe that we have some control over our ability to find strength. Perhaps that process happens slowly, with both time and attention paid to getting through what challenges us. A “one day at a time” type deal, where we gather both strength and courage with each step.
