Can someone explain amor fati to me?

Does it just mean love who you presently are? That seems a bit bourgeois to me. Does it mean that there's no explanation for why anything happens? Again, that seems a bit wrong, to say it's all senseless.

Is it a state of mind and/or a way of acting, and if so how is it cultivated etc.?
