It Is What It Is

It Is What It Is
Or is it?

Life is hard.
Making money is hard.
Relationships don’t work.
It is too easy to quit.

It is what it is.

I don’t live in a mansion, but I love my home.
I’m  not a dance teacher with my own studio, but I love my voice students. 

I’m not a size four, but I’m enjoying being a six.

It is what it is. 

Anything can be made to be worse than it is, or better than it is, just by where you choose to focus.

Yes, something may be a certain way, but are there no other choices, Really? 
Can one thing be shifted, even a little?  

For me, sometimes the phrase is a sigh.  It is my crutch, something I lean on so that I don’t have to look deeper and fix what is broken. Then other times it is a support, a soft place to land when I consider what my choices are, and what they are NOT.  Sometimes just the ‘knowing what you can change, and what you can not’ is a warm blanket allowing me to release responsibility into hands far stronger than my own.           

What is it for you? 


  1. Accepting the truth of a situation for what it is. The first step in changing it to what we want it to be.

  2. Well said! Often we forget that we can only move forward when we can see what 'here' is.
