IT IS WHAT IT IS

While working with a disabled individual I learned the true meaning of “IT IS WHAT IT IS.”  He did not personally apply it to his situation verbally, but by this quote of acceptance it was obvious that this was a inner philosophy.  At work this or that absurd thing would raise its (usually ugly, nonsensical) head to be noticed, fought against, remedied: he would state “IT IS WHAT IT IS.”

If we were to fight against, try to remedy would we be spinning our wheels?   We need to ‘pick our battles’ based on the feasibility, benefit and worthwhile use of our energy.  We can live with a lot of regrets and be bitter, or we can accept and move on to be a light to the world.
