“IT IS WHAT IT IS”
The statement: “It is what it is” seems like acceptance of the challenges we face. It’s rhythmic flow falls easily off our tongues. It sounds comforting and peaceful. We can feel absolved of responsibility to change something because ‘it is what it is’. When you start repeating this saying often, it can become a mind-set. It can stop expectations of improvement of the status quo. The danger of making this part of our daily vocabulary, is avoiding being response-able. It could block you from repositioning yourself amidst the flood of change in society as we knew it. Can we take the next step to ask: “How can we make it better than it is now”? Can we find ways to thrive again? To become more than who we were, not in spite of, but because of trauma. To be transformed.
What can you do about your “It is what it is”? I cannot choose what life puts on my plate. I can choose how I respond to it. As Dr Seuss said: “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”
True acceptance is the balance-dance between sadness and gratitude. Learn how to transform your “it is what it is” to true acceptance in my “Emotional Seesaw webinar” on Emotional Logic.
