I like to think of Chaos and Clarity as the twins of life, co-existing within me and around me. An inseparable pair who couldn’t be more different in appearance nor more connected in mission.  Each one serves my higher learning in her own way.

Chaos is often louder than Clarity.  She craves attention and thrives on disorder.  Chaos likes to shake things up.  She’s also a bit of a pyromaniac, setting fires and causing explosions that demand my attention. But she does it with a purpose.

I used to despise Chaos, thinking of her as little more than a troublemaker.  Until the day that Chaos delivered a blow so hard, I exploded into pieces.  At the time, I assumed she left me for dead.  But eventually I found that I was able to sort through my scattered pieces – a house-cleaning if you will.  As I put myself back together, I noticed that I was able to choose which pieces stayed and which needed to be eliminated.  I was free to re-configure myself in a less vulnerable way.  And I had Chaos to thank for that.

That’s how I met Clarity, the beautiful counterpart to Chaos.   She kneeled down beside me in my despair and helped me sweep up.  Then she held my hand and helped me stand.  And when I finally stood on my own two feet again, she showed me how to look at my life through her eyes.   I knew I would be okay, no matter what.  Clarity would always be there for me, alongside Chaos, to help me through this life.  All I had to do was acknowledge their co-existence.

These days, I welcome them both. My Team. They remind me on a daily basis – in big ways and small – that life is in complete balance.

I am Chaos and Clarity, as I suspect we all are.  And I’m doing my best to honor both.  This blog is just one more way to accomplish that.
