As I said in a previous post, I have had some health issues in recent months, things that were kind of (thank God, not much) affecting my daily life without me realizing it much. Before the diagnosis, I was having some trouble and I did not understand why and how. I kept asking if there is really something wrong or whether I am making it up. Then, it turned out that I had some genetic condition that was triggered that affected my life in a mild (but kind of consistent) way.
Two things in this: 1) I was diagnosed, so I had a name for it now and 2) it is genetic, so it is most likely going to be consistent all my life (I can keep it under control easily but I have to keep it under control). Neither of these are great. Now I know I have a condition, so something is wrong and plus, it is consistent. But surprisingly, I was very relieved when the diagnosis was cleared. I felt like, now that I know what it is, I can handle it and I did. This is the power of clarity. I was not deterred by its being genetic, for example. I thought maybe that would make me sad because technically, it is not really fully treatable. But still, the clarification gave me so much power that I am surprised.
Something similar happened this week too and I am now seeing the power of clarity, for good or for bad, much better. Whatever it is, it is better to know it than to leave it hanging.
Have you had similar experiences? Let’s discuss the power of clarity today.
