It Is What It Is’ Syndrome

It Is What It Is’ Syndrome

You know what’s interesting? I used to think saying, it is what it is, made sense and that everyone believed as I did. Oddly enough, to some degree, it absolutely hits the mark! It is what it is. Think about it; allow it to sizzle and you’ll find there’s very little room for argument with this statement; life is life and circumstances are what they are.

So what possessed me to embrace this philosophy? Because it completely removes the contexts of right / wrong and good / bad from life. It smooths the waters and implies that all is as it should be. In fact, it makes it incredibly easy to identify what works and what doesn’t work when you’re able to look at things for what they are and eliminate all judgment and blame.

However, there was / is a gap. Even though things are as they should be, that doesn’t mean circumstances can’t be different or improved upon. It takes an ability to accept what’s so along with a strong desire and commitment to expand beyond our perceived limitations, remove all desperation and need and generate our actions from a place of pure inspiration. Unfortunately, this is not a common approach. Many people can wrap their heads around, it is what it is, and then stop there because instead of looking up, they look down… right down the rabbit hole where apathy resides and nothing can possibly make a difference, because… ‘I have no money, my family is fat, cancer runs in my family, both my parents lost their teeth, my dad was a factory worker, women aren’t supposed to… ; so why bother?’ Why bother indeed… here’s what I know about apathy… it’s a killer AND it’s reached epidemic proportions!

It destroys inspiration, motivation, creativity, desire, vision, and passion leading to breakdowns, train wrecks, disasters, dis-eases and dis-orders of body, mind, and spirit as well as the world around us.

Is it possible to break free of apathy’s grip? Of course; however, and that is a big however, it takes a commitment to being committed to doing life differently. It means retraining yourself to think, speak and act in ways you are unaccustomed too. It requires support structures and accountability to powerfully generate yourself in new ways of being. And like any new workout, it takes effort that gets easier with practice.

Are you done suffering from ‘it is what it is’ syndrome or are you committed to suffering? You see the choice is yours. Weight, medical conditions, dental conditions, sleep issues, aging, financial success (or lack there of) are results of living life a certain way AND with structured, intentional love and support, you can recover your energy, stamina, and passion; leading a life that consistently lights you up in ways you’ve always dreamed of!
