It is what it is.

I am so pleased to have rediscovered an awareness that I am NOT my thoughts. My thoughts are the white noise that runs through my mind. It doesn’t mean anything! All I need do is observe it.

I also remembered the need to be compassionate to myself. As I observe the negative static that goes through my mind, I realise that I have beaten myself up an awful lot lately. That is because I have tried to second guess what people are thinking about me. The reality is that there is no way I can truly know what people are thinking about me – and what does it matter anyway.

I remember that the God of my understanding is within me and is good and pure and wise. If I listen to that still, small voice I can trust that the decisions I make will be wise ones.

It is lovely to feel that “lightness” once again. I am not tied to the past and I am not burdened by the future.

Everything is, as it is, and that is ok.

  1. A few guys at work have taken up the saying, “It is what it is,” to account for all the screwups they keep making. I’m more of the, “It is what I think it is,” school of thought. But I think ultimately it is whatever works for you. And that’s OK, too.
