One Word 2018

I am normally very pleased to share my One Word of the year. I proudly tell people that my resolutions are a word and not a list. I tell them how it helps me move forward with the things I want to accomplish, as well as help me deal with the things that come up in the year.

However my word for this year feels unconventional and a bit outside of my comfort zone. So maybe this isn't the exact form of the word that I want, but something in me says this is the right word. So what is this word?

For something to sparkle, it needs to reflect light. It doesn't have light of its own. I want to reflect the Kingdom. However unlike a mirror, sparkle reflects light in different intensities in different directions. So it isn't the same light for everyone. Sparkle is also happy and I wouldn't mind some happy. Not a fake happy, but a real happy with who I am and where my life is. I will sparkle more by being more of myself, more of the things that make me the woman God wants me to be. I will sparkle more by being more like Jesus and drawing closer to his light.

If I'm honest, this word scares me a little. I don't know where this word will lead me. I know it will take me out of my comfort zone. That's scary, but I think it's important. So 2018, bring it on! Let's sparkle.
