What Is and Should Never Be

For the past year or so, I have heard and I have said, more times than I can count "It is what it is."
Sometimes, I think this is a polite way of saying "Eff it" or "It is effed up, but what are we to do besides deal with it?"
So, of late, anytime I find myself hearing or saying these words, I follow them up with a "We gotta keep on, keepin' on"

Peace, Love People!

"It is what it is" makes me face reality.

"It is what it is" is my mantra right now. But I like your add-on.

I say "Watcha Gonna Do?"

Wreggie...Really the same goes here, which is why I have been saying it so much for the past year or so. However, I kinda like the idea of looking forward and of having a positive impact :)

Karma...Lol, it has been my mantra for all too long now. Seems like every other day, something out of my control causes me to come off with that comment. With the economy and such, I have noticed a lot of folks are saying it now. But whatever it is, we gotta remember the butterfly effect ;) whatever it is, can be affected by us and what we choose to do.

Scott... Lol, I am gonna Keep On, Keepin' On and it will be what it will be ;) Whatchoo gonna do?

Mel said...

At least you're not breaking out in some Doris Day song? (trust me, that's a good thing...LOL)

It IS what it is--and we do get to keep on keepin' on.
And frankly, I'm grateful that I get to.

*Hugs*

There is no doubt; you have a way with words :)

Shimmerrings said...

Yep, it sure is what it is... and sometimes that's not a happy thought, other times it's a good thing... and, so right, you are... we gotta keep on keepin' on!

Mel...My dad always said something to the effect of 'persistence will pay off' and I believe him to be right. I know you have that accepting, yet determined spirit as well. ;) ps...last week or so I left you a linkity-link comment about puppies. Yeah, I know. It is what it is, but that doesn't always mean it will be what it is now ;) xoxox

Orhan....zatta fact? ;)I thought about you and your kangaroos today...

Shimmerings... yes, when it's good, we don't want to fix what is not broke and when it's not so good, we gotta look for resolutions to make it somewhat better...even if that resolution is simply accepting it.

peace & love people!

Nothing like a little good Zeppelin to start my morning off at the office . . .

And "it is what it is" is so damn applicable to my world of late . . .

Now if I can just get my thoughts and emotions to cooperate . . .

It is what it is...

until the day it is what it ain't!

And

as always

(sometimes)

it really only is what it could ever have been, nothing more and nothing less...

So glad to see you once more!

Peace out!!

skinnylittlesister said...

Oceans! Awwwww....please read comment up above to shimmerings... it may apply here? P&L, remember 'it was it is' doesn't mean it will be what it is later on down the road!

Times have gotten pretty rough for most people. We'll make it through, and hopefully things will actually get better this time. I'm with you.
