It is what it is. Such a defeatist statement. Something that is said to just accept things the way they are. It is what it is and there is nothing we can do about it.
I believe in fate. Sort of.
We were all born and none of us asked to be. That is what it is. I believe we are all fated to achieve. As to what we are to achieve is as varied as the blueberries on the bush. We are all fated to die. The when, where, and how are yet to be determined (as far as I believe anyways). We should strive to be better. Not better than anyone else, just a better version of ourselves from the day before. We should all strive to achieve something in our life, it really doesn’t matter what. We should take care of ourselves, but never to the point of restricting the act of actually living.
Truth is… TODAY… yes this very day could very well be your LAST DAY on earth. So many ways that could happen; care to start counting those blueberries? If you knew… what would you do today? How would you like to be remembered? Is there something you would leave unsaid? What would your last meal be?
Just my nickels worth …

“If I filled the Earth with blueberries, I would have the same number as atoms in a grapefruit.” – Jonathan Bergmann
