The blogger in me felt the need to pick a word for the year. I told myself I wasn’t going to but… Well, if I’m being honest, the Lord had other plans for me. See, I have been really frustrated with a lot of things in my life lately and decided that I was just going to pray about it and let God handle it. Something that keeps coming back to my life is writing. I know that I’m supposed to use writing to make a difference in people’s lives. (I know this seems off topic. Bear with me.) I was adamantly not going to fall into the “word of the year trend” buuuutttttt here I am, writing about my word of the year. Obviously, my plans don’t always line up with what the Lord has in store for me. THAT much was made very clear to me in the last year. 

 

My word for this year is WILD. Now, no, I’m not going back to my party days. I’m not going to be a crazy wild-child this year. 

a (1) :  not subject to restraint or regulation :  uncontrolled; also :  unruly (2) :  emotionally overcome <wild with grief>; also :  passionately eager or enthusiastic <was wild to own a toy train — J. C. Furnas>b :  marked by turbulent agitation :  stormy <a wild night>c :  going beyond normal or conventional bounds :  fantastic <wild ideas>; also :  sensationald :  indicative of strong passion, desire, or emotion <a wild gleam of delight in his eyes — Irish Digest> (From Merriam-Webster

I’m turning 30 this year. I’m going to be unapologetically ME. I’m not going to water my personality down. I’m a very emotional person. I get easily attached. I get excited. If I’m into something, I’m UTTERLY OBSESSED with it. and I’ve always thought of that as a bad thing. I’ve always considered my wild heart to be a bad thing. Not very many people truly appreciate raw, passionate people. I need to stop worrying about them and focus on the people that DO appreciate that. The people that love to hear about my passions, my hopes, my dreams, my visions, my life…   I’m going to embrace my wild, gypsy heart and see where that takes me. I found some quotes that really sold me on “Wild” — 

 

“She is vulnerable, as all open hearts are, but she is wild and free and can handle a few scars.”  – A.R. Asher

“Be both soft and wild just like the moon. Or the storm. Or the sea.”  – Victoria Erickson 

“She was a wild one; always stomping on the eggshells that everyone else tip-toed on.” – Kaitlyn Foster 

“She was a wild child; always stealing the stars and getting drunk on the souls of the earthbound misfits.” 

 

NOW, as far as the color goes. This is something new to me. At work they pick a color for the year. Last year it was red, this year it’s blue. When we were discussing the color for the year at work, the color that the Lord put on my heart personally was purple. The color purple is symbolic of spirituality, creativity, royalty, and dignity. It’s considered an uplifting and calming color — something my life definitely NEEDS. I’m not sure how I’m going to incorporate the color purple into my life but it’s my color this year. I’m looking forward to what that entails. 

 

 

Do you have a word or color (or both!) of 2017? Tell me!
