Accepting "It is what it is" is more difficult. God's way is not always getting your way in life or the things how you see it, or the asperations that were acquired that you wanted, broken dreams, etc etc.
Tao te Ching
The supreme good is like water,
which nourishes all things without trying to.
It is content with the low places that people disdain.
Thus it is like the Tao.
A lot of the Tao te Ching really doesn't need much comment. Water, or the Watercourse Way, is a common image for Tao. Water follows the path of least resistance, down to the low spots. It doesn't seek to elevate itself.
In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don't try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present.
Good advice. ^/^
When you are content to be simply yourself
and don't compare or compete,
everybody will respect you.
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
