Confusion Leads Into Clarity
Oct 01, 2019
I love thunder storms. LOVE them.
As long as I'm not holding a metal rod in the middle of a field somewhere, I'm like, "Bring it on!"
When a storm is coming and you're watching the sky, you will always see the lightning before you hear the thunder.
(Nerd fact: That is simply because light travels much faster than sound waves.)
One of my favorite things to do when I see lightening is try and guess how far away the storm is by counting the seconds between the flash of lightening and the clap of thunder.
(Nerd fact: It takes approximately 5 seconds for the sound to travel 1 mile.)
I think Thunder and Lightening are a great way to explain Confusion and Clarity.
Confusion is like the lightening.
Confusion shows up quickly. It makes its presence known. You'll always be aware of Confusion first.
BUT, if you keep focused, Clarity will always follow. Maybe it's "miles away," but you know it's coming.
Clarity gets closer and closer, with each "strike" of Confusion.
The presence of Confusion isn't a reason to believe that Clarity will never come. In fact, it's quite the opposite.
Confusion leads the way and announces the impending arrival of Clarity.
So next time you're feeling "stuck" with Confusion, remind yourself to keep focused on the sky.... Clarity is on the way.
