Hey guys! Welcome back. What is 72 hours? Simply stated it’s just three days. Depending on your lifestyle that could be a relatively long time or a relatively long time. But it has been said that all you need is 72 hours to find perspective. Whatever is going on in your life right now, whatever decisions need to be made, can be done in 72 hours. A lot can happen in 72 hours. A lot can change. You could pass a test, dye your hair, fall in love, get a new job, find a new place to live, or make a new best friend. The possibilities are endless.
If it won’t matter in 72 hours, it isn’t worth worrying about now. Sometimes we experience things that make it seem like the world is ending. But is it really? In three days are we still going to care about what is going on in this moment? If not, it’s time to move on. Don’t worry about what you can’t control. Don’t worry about things that you aren’t going to still be caring about in 72 hours. If it’s not worth your time then, it’s not worth your time now.
Sometimes people can get to us. They say things or do things that rub us the wrong way. If in 72 hours you won’t react or retaliate, don’t do it now. Learn to let the little things (and people) go. If they won’t be worth it in three days, they aren’t worth it now. No matter how you feel now, just take a deep breathe and decide if they are worth it. Chances are, they probably aren’t, and you will save yourself a whole lot of time.
We get hurt. People hurt us. Circumstances hurt us. We go through things that challenge us or make us hurt inside. It’s a part of life. The thing that gets us through that is having people in our lives that can help us get through that hurt and that pain and struggle. If they know you’re hurting and haven’t checked on you in 72 hours, move on. Anyone that sees you in pain and doesn’t check on you in at least three days isn’t worth your time. It doesn’t take long to send a message or make a phone call. Remember that if you are not a priority for them, they shouldn’t be on your list of priorities either.
All this being said, there are things that are important now that will still be important three days from now. If it’s still on your mind in 72 hours, do something about it. Say what you need to say, do what you need to do, and go where you need to go. Don’t hold in in longer than 72 hours. If it needs to happen, make it happen. But allow that 72 hours to pass before you react. Three days, or 72 hours, is enough time to allow you to gain perspective and have a rational opinion.
