it is what it is


It is not as complicated as you think
Really it is not
We have a habit of over thinking
Analyzing every word spoken
Picking apart each detail

But really
What you see
Is what you get
There is no hidden meaning
No subplot that no one is talking about
It just is what it is
As simple as that

Why is it so difficult for us to accept simple?
Why are we always searching for what may be beneath?
Why can we not just realize it is not that complicated?

Life is pretty straight forward
There is no reason to go into detective mode
Just embrace what is before you
Because that is what is true
That is what is real

i agree with Kelly...

I think when we overanalyze and don't accept what is we are just hoping that it could be different ...but if we surrender to whatever it is it will get easier.

lovely words as always!
