New Year, New Word

Here we go again my friends.  It's a new year and a new word.  In the past I have taken this a little more lightly.  I have chosen a word that I liked but didn't really require much of me. Something that I could reasonably achieve in a few moments of a-ha or even not really think of at all and still feel like I "done good".

This year??  Not so much.  In fact this year my word chose me.  I didn't want it to.  I stumbled across it, not even looking for it mind you, and it said "Hello there... I see that I make you a little uncomfortable, let's be friends.  In fact let's spend the whole next year together."  I cringed a little and said "Oh... that's okay.  You're cool and all but I don't know if I can really be myself around you."  It cleverly responded with "And that's the problem."

So without further ado, the word that chose me this year and I decided to keep is "Authentic".

Anyone out there see why I cringed?  

Lots for me to learn folks... lots to learn.

Happy 2016 everyone.


  1. I totally saw your word coming. Weird, no? I think I've settled on intent or intention. We will see how it goes.

    1. I almost decided to start the new word thing in December for that very reason. I've just been feeling it a lot lately. And I'm excited to stop being someone else.

  2. I can't wait to walk with you through this!

  3. Wow.... had a nice, long, well thought out comment, but it seems to have disappeared. Your post is inspiring! I still haven't settled on a word.
