Shikata Ga Nai
shikata ga nai
Japanese phrase meaning - letting go of what cannot be changed and realising that some things are just out of our control, and that's ok. Let go and focus on what you can change.

The vast expanse of life, we encounter moments beyond our grasp,
Where the currents of fate carry us down paths unforeseen,
In these times, we must embrace the wisdom of "shikata ga nai,"
Letting go of what cannot be altered, accepting the ebb and flow.

In the tapestry of existence, threads of uncertainty weave,
Binding us to the unknown, where outcomes elude prediction,
Yet in this flux, we find solace in surrender,
Releasing the burden of control, freeing our spirits to soar.

For in the symphony of chaos, harmony emerges from acceptance,
As we shed the weight of worry and embrace the serenity of now,
Letting go of what cannot be changed, we discover liberation,
And shift our focus to what lies within our power to transform.

Walk with grace through the dance of impermanence,
Embracing the beauty of unpredictability, finding strength in surrender,
For in the essence of "shikata ga nai," we unearth resilience,
And learn to flow with the currents of life, unbroken and whole.
