Invictus Maneo: Strength and Belonging

Invictus is Latin word that means unconquerable, undefeated, or unvanquished.
Maneo is the Latin word for I stay, I remain, I last or I endure.
These two words make up my family motto, and, in turn, have given me strength. I stay unconquerable; I endure undefeated; I remain unvanquished.

The Scottish tradition (where my surname comes from) of having family crests and mottos gives me the feeling of belonging to something greater than myself.
Belonging strengthens my belief that no matter how difficult life is, I can and will endure.
A clan is a group of people united by actual or perceived blood kinship. In other words, a tribe or an extended family. The name unifies people and gives a unified purpose. The collective, in its most ideal form, is a group of people who look out for each other’s interests.

“During times of suffering the shelter of belonging calms us”

Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
