  1. clearness or lucidity as to perception or understanding; freedom from indistinctness or ambiguity.
  2. the state or quality of being clear or transparent to the eye; pellucidity: the clarity of pure water. –

Today marks the first day of 2020. In thinking about the year ahead and what I’d like it to be about, one word immediately came to mind – clarity.

The phrase 2020 is synonymous with our sense of sight and in particular the human measurement for clarity of vision. Of course future vision is a small part of what I’m talking about. My vision for 2020 involves being a loving husband, great father, loyal friend, inspiring leader, humble student, and a kind human. Still the clarity I hope to embody is about more than just a future vision, it’s more about living each moment with greater clarity of purpose so as to realize that vision.

In pursuit of clarity, I will listen more intently and hear the voices of others with greater patience, and empathy. I will live more mindfully, through meditation, observation, and focused acts of creation. I will think more thoroughly, speak more carefully, act more consciously, and live more deliberately.

In 2020, I will seek clarity in working to understand the difference between the things in life that I can change and those that are beyond my power to control. In discerning the difference between the two, I will seek to be an agent of positive change where it counts, and not waste my precious time and my limited energy when it truly doesn’t matter.

My belief is that greater clarity will yield more happinesses and joy, understanding and wisdom, meaning and beauty to my life and hopefully to those who I encounter on the journey.

Clarity: My mantra for 2020.
