Amor fati

Amor fati is a Latin phrase that may be translated as “love of fate” or “love of one’s fate”. It is used to describe an attitude in which one sees everything that happens in one’s life, including suffering and loss, as good or, at the very least, necessary.[1]

Amor fati is often associated with what Friedrich Nietzsche called “eternal recurrence“, the idea that, over an infinite period of time, everything recurs infinitely. From this he developed a desire to be willing to live exactly the same life over and over for all eternity (“…long for nothing more fervently than this ultimate eternal confirmation and seal”).[2]

Amor fati Is also talked about in stoic philosophy. Source: Amor fati – Wikipedia
