I am the queen of “It is What it Is”. When I have done all the logical things I can do to resolve an issue or make a point, I finally simply walk away and say “It is what it is.” I don’t color the past to make it appear to be something that is not. When things come right down to it, it is black and white and you simply accept it and move forward.
The one part of the quote I would remove is the word unfortunately. I think that mistakes are great lessons and if we “erased” them the lessons we learned might disappear as well. I don’t love when I need to learn things over and over. I am grateful my life is written in ink.
