“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” By Theodore. Roosevelt

Wow! It seems like I’m brought back to the power of now (also an amazing book by Eckhart Tolle) in everything we undertake. This statement is self-evident and absolute, when you choose to live in the now. Right now, you can only do what you can, because you simply can’t do otherwise. Right now, you can only use what you have, because you can’t possibly use what you don’t have. Right now, you can only act from where you are, because you can’t physically be in more than one place at a time. 

Again, I come back to a freedom from worry and deep relief when accepting the truth before me. Now everything is as it should, must, needs to be, because it is. I can’t even suggest an alternate explanation, unless I dive into fantasy and science-fiction concepts, because there is every proof right there in front of me. It is as it is and it always will be in the moment it is. Maybe something is changing in me, but I’m really starting to love literally obvious statements.
