I have selected a yearly word for the past five years and feel like it's a helpful thing to participate in. I was introduced to the concept by Ali Edwards and she has a class every year. I took the class last year and highly recommend it.
In the past selecting a word was easy, almost like the words found me. This year not so much. When the first week of 2016 came and went with no word jumping out at me, I decided to not stress and give myself until the end of January.
I've decided on the word 'embrace'. There are several areas of my life I want to see improvement in and I like the idea of embracing those areas. I want to embrace time with God, embrace time with my family and embrace creativity.
I will share more on my journey with this word as the year goes on!
