It is what it is…

It is what it is…that’s my mom’s new mantra.  It doesn’t really commit to a positive or negative view yet there is a simple acceptance and acknowledgement that something has happened that we cannot change.  Sometimes circumstances in life are unchangeable but we still have the personal power in the situation to choose how we will react or respond.  Even better we can choose NOT to react.

I will admit that I have repeated that mantra quite a few times in the past few weeks.  Mom has a way of cutting through the crap and simply stating the obvious in such a way that even in the worst of situations, I can crack a smile.

One thought on “It is what it is…

  1. “Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. Love still stands when all else has fallen.”
