Word-Of-the-Week #860: Clarity

January 28, 2021 by  

Clarity – the state or quality of being clear minded; lucidity.

Do you remember the song by Johnny Nash, “I Can See Clearly Now?” Did you ever feel like me…that during 2020 there were times you questioned your thoughts and feelings about the world around you and the people in it?

The past week feels as if the fog and rain of 2020 is clearing. Like Johnny sings…

“I can see clearly now. The rain is gone.

I can see all obstacles in my way.

Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind.

It’s gonna be a bright, bright, sunshiny day.

I think I can make it now; the pain is gone.

All of the bad feelings have disappeared.

Here is that rainbow I’ve been praying for.

Look all around, there’s nothing but blue skies.

Look straight ahead, nothing but blue skies.”

What has come up for me are the little red flags. “I can see clearly now.” At first you see one or two. And then they kind of grow a little bit bigger. But then over the course of time, there are more that pop up, and just a little bit bigger. Until one day you realize they are no longer red flags. They’ve turned into a BIG RED BANNER! Like the kind you see flapping in the wind trailing behind the tail of a Cessna 150 airplane over the stadium or along the shoreline.

The worst is when they turn into the Goodyear Blimp! I don’t know about you, but for me they just aren’t acceptable anymore. I’m going for surrounding myself with people who bring me “bright sunshiny days.”

This week’s focus is on clarity. Do you have any red flags that have now turned into banners? How would it feel too not be blind to them anymore? What would a “bright sunshiny day” look like to you?
