A friend of mine started with the “Time will pass regardless” joke for everything that was happening around us. It became the “go to” phrase to justify why we should not worry about anything and just let things be as “Time” was going to pass no matter what. Every time we would talk about this concept with real life events I started noticing a shift in my perception and emotions towards the possible outcomes and how regardless if I would worry or not, time was not going to stop and allow for me to think and decide what to do.
The more we joked about it the more it started to sink in…Time…nothing can stop it or reverse it, time doesn’t go on vacation or allows us for extra “time” when we need to make a decision. It doesn’t stop so that we can be on “time” to work…
So I started paying more attention to my life events and took the opportunity to consciously force myself to perceive it differently. Let me tell you though, this is not an easy task. it is very hard to step away from the emotion that comes with a decision or event and simply, “Let it go”. This is definitely easier said than done. On the other hand, this doesn’t mean that from now on you should just let “Time pass” and not do anything about a situation that needs your attention.
Unfortunately, we all have opportunities in life that we just have allowed for time to pass just because we felt that it was going to take too long to complete. How many of us have stopped going to school because it was going to take us a long time to graduate, however because “time will pass regardless” isn’t it just better to allow for it to pass while completing the goals that we had set forth for ourselves? Have you ever looked back and realized that the time you thought was required to complete a project just passed in front of your eyes and if you would have made the conscious decision to be consistent, the results would have been different?
So from now on, unless you are sure that you will feel happy with the decision that you are making regardless of the outcome, remember that “time will pass regardless” be wise with how you utilize that “time” as it can change the path of your future in ways that you would only dream of.
