It's in the mail

2019-12-16

I recently heard someone use the expression “It’s in the mail” to describe something that was going to happen eventually anyway, so you may as well get it over with.

What a beautiful metaphor. Once you’ve dropped it in the mailbox, it’s basically already happened. Whatever’s going to happen is going to happen. So what have you got to lose by letting it? Recognize that inevitability, accept it and move on.
