Authentic: true to one's own personality, spirit, or character
This is my word for 2010! I was in the shower innocently washing my hair when I realized that my shampoo bottle was staring me down! The word "pure" was staring at me. I thought long and hard about that, but it still didn't seem to quite fit. But I knew that I was getting close. I decided to look of synonyms for pure, and the very last one was authentic. As soon as I read it, I knew it was right.
I want to live a more authentic life. I want to be true to my personality, spirit, and character. Also to my body. To my family. I want to eat more authentic foods, feel more authentic emotions, and have more authentic stories to tell. Now... onward! XOXO

Authentic is an admirable goal. I too am striving! Gone is the acrylic French Manicure. Gone is the hair color. Gone gone gone is anything fake (except my wigs during the hair grow-out exercise) that is covering up the real me. I shall also be authentic in 2010. Authentic in thought, word, and deed.

Let's compare notes in a few months and see how we're doing...
