Idiom: Take things as they come

I came across this idiom the other day and liked it so much that I wanted to share it:

既來之,則安之 [ 既来之,则安之] ( jì lái zhī , zé ān zhī )

take things as they come; there’s nothing that can be done about it, so may as well sit back and enjoy it.

While it’s fairly rare, it’s an idiom I’ve seen tacked on to the end of sentences and paragraphs that describe a situation that there isn’t much that can be done about something, so may we as well try and enjoy it.
