So it's 2015….

What's changed in your world? It kind of feels like the day after your birthday when everybody is telling you your life is supposed to be different, but no matter how you look around at it, it all looks exactly the same as it did as it did the day before or the day before that.

Or maybe you look at today and compare it to the pictures of how 2015 was SUPPOSED to look in the second movie of Back to the Future trilogy. We don't have hoverboards or self-lacing shoes, so things must be pretty much the same as they always were.

Well, I was trying to go through that Word of the Year process that I shared with you all last week, and I found myself stuck. I couldn't choose any of the words that came to my mind because they were all pretty much as revolutionary in my life as self-lacing shoes would be. (Actually, wouldn't that be totally awesome? But I digress....)

Some of the words that clamored to be chosen were words like revolution, rebel, yes, exhilaration, healing, awake, divergent, and messy. But there were other words whose energy I heard and felt as well--sanctuary, devotion, shalom, story.

So here I sit on what is for me January 3 at 6:00 in the evening. I made no resolutions. I have yet to choose my word from all these calling out to me. My color for the year is the bright yellow of the Despicable Me minions. I suspect this means some kind of change in my life is coming, but I have no idea what. ARGH.

For those of you who read last week's post, did you choose a word? If you'd feel comfortable, please feel free to share in the comments. If I'm lucky, maybe it will dislodge me from this stuck place.
