“Do what you can do, with what you have, where you are.” Theodore Roosevelt
It’s been a few weeks since the last post about overcoming obstacles. And that post was about getting back on track when life happens and throws you off of your path toward making positive changes in your life.
Over the weekend, my hubs fixed our toilet. He installed a replacement kit inside the tank of the toilet. Except, unfortunately, it’s still not really fixed.
But, he worked on fixing it, and that was the best thing that he could do, at that time, and now we have to move on to the next step of figuring out why it’s still not working right and why it’s using more water than it needs to.
Sometimes when working to overcome an obstacle in our lives it can seem so overwhelming. It can seem like there is way too much to do, too much to change. Or we can work on something, and have it still not work out the way we want, or expect, it to. We have to remember to just do what we can do.
We can’t change everything about our lifestyle overnight (although we might want to, and it does seem like there are those people that are somehow able to accomplish that – I am definitely not one of those people!)
We don’t need to focus on all of the things that we can’t do. All of the things that we wish that we had changed already, or wish that we could do right now, we just need to focus and take action on what we can do, right now, with the time and resources that we have. And not worry about the rest.
What can you do to work on making a change, or overcoming an obstacle, where you are right now, with what you already have?
