“A POSSE AD ESSE”
Being curious, I took out my smart phone and looked up what it meant. It’s a Latin proverb that loosely translates to, “From possibility to reality.” Google translates it to, “From being able to be.” A more elaborate translation is, “It is impossible to determine one’s possibility from one’s reality.” To me, this quote and all its various translations are empowering.
I don’t plan on studying Latin any time soon to fully grasp the quote’s meaning, but I get the point. My past may influence my future, but it cannot determine it! Everything I ever wanted to do, I should do, because I can do.
