Oh well

"Oh well."

It's a powerful phrase. No, a sentence—a complete thought and a sufficient response to external events.

It's about not complaining about the world's natural tendencies. It's about avoiding disappointment and regret and anger. It's choosing not to be bothered. It's moving on and planning your next move.

It's control. Over our responses and our emotions.

It's acceptance. Of what is and what isn't.

It's peace.
