I struggled with picking a word for 2021. I came this close to going with Aware, aka mindfulness. Sometimes I’m a very mindful person — and sometimes I’m really not. I get caught up in the “I’m so busy” trap, which never ends well. Somehow I knew it Aware wasn’t quite right.

One morning, as I was doing some Yoga, I was thinking about the Yamas & Niyamas (which I actually am writing a post about for the Website/blog I’ve been mightily resisting creating for my Yoga, and finally realized I really need to do). Clean actually popped into my mind suddenly, and then Clear just popped in. 

In some ways it still doesn’t feel like “the one”, and yet my gut says it is.

Clear away what is not serving me
We all have things that aren’t serving us. Sometimes they’re just habits. Sometimes they’re inertia: much easier to keep a status quo than do something about it.. 

Clear away more clutter
I worked really hard on this in 2020, and made a lot of progress. I’ve been on a hiatus from it because the end of the year just always does a real job on my energy — and that’s in a good year.

There is more work to be done, though, and I want to clear out my Yoga room more. I already feel a sense of peace when I step in there, but there’s also still some clutter that needs to be cleared. That’s not the only space in my house where more clutter needs to go.

Be clear on my goals
Yes, I’ve started to use my Simple Elephant planner — even though we all know what happened to planning in 2020 (I can no longer find this planner on Amazon, but this one is similar — Amazon Affiliate link here).! The planner lives up to its name: it is, indeed, quite simple.

This makes it a lot smaller than my Clever Fox planner from 2020 (see my review here) — which I never did completely fill, so I’m using it for note taking right now, LOL.

Clear my mind regularly
Ok, I already do this. When I first started to meditate, it was an on again off again thing, but it’s been a daily practice for several years now. It can make such a difference in your day to start it off with some meditation. You don’t have to sit for 20 minutes! Even just 5 minutes of calm can make all the difference in how you face  — and embrace — your day.

Cue Yoga classes clearly
Clear cueing is not my strong point. It’s something I’m continually working on. I also tend to trip over my words when I’m just doing vlogs, too — which I’m pretty sure is always going to happen. I intend to audit another teacher training that I’ve heard really helps with cueing.
