Clarity Really Matters

February 17, 2021

In 2001, I experienced a giant retinal detachment.  Since then, I've endured four painful surgeries, the last of which left me without sight in that eye.

I've been counting on my right eye and have been able to see clearly enough for the past twenty years; however, for the past few years, a cataract was slowly blurring the sight in my right eye, the "good eye.".

This year, it was time to do something about it.

I was really nervous about cataract surgery, even though it's considered "routine." When you only have one good eye, nothing seems routine.

Bottom line, the surgery was successful and I now have 20/20 vision in that eye. 

But beyond the bottom line, I have clarity. I didn't even realize how much I had been missing, how everything is brighter and clearer than I knew.  I can see my family's faces and the dust bunnies in the corners much more distinctly. Good and bad, I can see it all now.

And it was so worth it. 

How about you? 

Do you have clarity when it comes to your life? Are relationships frazzled and conflicts unresolved? Do you need to exercise? Have you stopped noticing the dirty dishes in the sink and the dust bunnies in the corner? Are you prepared for financial challenges that the future may bring? Do you see things through a hazy lens, hope for the best, and muddle through?

At some point, we need to choose the scary procedure and get rid of the cloudiness. Whether it's sloppy housekeeping or sloppy financial planning, we all feel better when things are in order, when there's clarity.

Whatever you need to do, take the first step. If it means getting off the couch and starting to exercise, just do it. If you need to clear out the clutter you've been ignoring for years, start somewhere. 

And if your finances are in disarray, stop avoiding the conversation and take a good hard look at where you are and where you want to be.

We are happy to help you begin that journey.

And it is so worth it!
