“Visual Clarity” is a definition of the word Resolution. Of course you are thinking that this refers to the crispness of images on big screen televisions and photographs. I am sure that is what Webster intended when sighting this definition. However, I like to think of Visual Clarity in a different way.
I have never made any official New Year’s Resolutions. It always seemed to me as too much of a Band Wagon Thing. When someone is on a band wagon their focus is not upon being determined about something, it is about doing something because everyone else is doing it. How many people really stick to resolutions made in this way? Not many, I think. A resolution should be made within the quiet of your own being. It should be made because you are determined that it must be done. “Determination” is one of the definitions of resolution. A resolution requires stamina and a sense of purpose because another part of the definition is “Outcome”. If there is no outcome, it is not a true resolution. Our lives should be full of resolutions that are made all year long. These resolutions require determination to produce real outcomes. When you pick something about you or your life that needs to be changed, be serious about obtaining that goal. And make sure that goal is worthy, because this is Life Improvement we are talking about. It is about growing and not stagnating or sliding backwards.
Many New Year’s Resolutions only involve self improvement. I challenge you to also include resolving to improve life quality around you. We do not live in a bubble. What we do effects others, and what others do effects us. Including others in our resolutions makes a better life environment for us all. There is so much hate and injustice in the world. Defy it by being just one person to lead by example to resolve to give some kindness. Hopefully, this might create a ripple that others will continue.
Today, when I read that Visual Clarity was a definition for the word Resolution, I chose to interpret its’ meaning as being visually clear of the Big Picture; of having the vision to see how each of our resolutions can effect the Big Picture where we all dwell together. Our resolutions can make the Big Picture better if we see that.
The beginning of the New Year is a good time to assess where you have been, where you want to go and the goals you would like to obtain to further yourself and others. But don’t make your resolutions lightly just so you look better in your bikini or Speedo. Think bigger and proceed with determination to your desired outcome. Happy New Year!
