It is what it is....

Do you ever come across something that totally strikes you in a positive way.  Something you need at that particular moment that makes you think straight and makes you feel slightly more sane? I was wasting some time on Pintrest the other night, and I came across this gem...

I have heard this quote many times in my life.... and it never really meant much, I mean it seems pretty simple right?  Well.... after thinking about it a while, it's definitely something I want to try to live by and its slowly becoming a favorite quote.

I don't know about you guys... but I have a tendency to try to control things in my life that are out of my control.  What is even worse is that when I try and fail.... I get really stressed out.  This is not a good combination.  It causes a lot of stress in my life and it's stress that I shouldn't put myself through because its out of my control!!!  There have been some things recently that I have had to let go of.  I have stepped away and put my focus else where.  It's been kind of hard.... changing your mind set over night is impossible. But I have noticed that the stress has been a lot less apparent since doing so.  After seeing this photo it really put into perspective that.... life is FAR to short to worry about the things out of my control.  "It is what it is"... and that's all I can do.  

I hope this has helped some of you, or even just put a new perspective to things in your life!! Remember, Before you start down another worry road.... think about this little quote.  Is it something you can change and something you can control?? Or is it.... Just what it is. 

Love you guys!  Have an awesome evening!
