The Nine of Wands card suggests that my power today lies in remarkable gratitude. I am not a victim. There are no lost causes. "I've been there, done that, and know suffering -- but it's all good." I'm still standing. "Can't touch this." Self-pity is an excuse to do nothing. To appeal to sympathy for pity's sake is to seek affirmation of the choice to do nothing. I am empowered by the spirit and support of meaningful experience and I transform with silent resilience. 

defending yourself
assuming ill will expecting the worst taking extra precautions being paranoid feeling wary and guarded protecting others remembering past attacks
persisting despite all setbacks refusing to take "no" for an answer seeing something through to the end getting knocked down, then standing up keeping your resolve trying repeatedly
showing stamina
continuing despite fatigue holding fast drawing on hidden reserves holding together through force of will demonstrating physical strength keeping up the pace
