New Years 2015

Somehow the year 2015 sounds futuristic to me....probably because of my age?  But here is another year and it's time to reassess and make new goals.  The feeling of a fresh start is always invigorating.

My word for this year:
Authentic:  truthful, sincere, devoted, genuine, real, actual, pure, veritable, lawful, on the level.

Stop faking it and live the life you were born to fulfill. Rediscover your core values and return to your authentic self. Regain the passion, excitement, and confidence locked inside. Get real and leave the old phony behind.

Authentic: Genuine; literally self-authored or endorsed.

Self: Your physical and mental being with all its human and unique characteristics.
Authentic Self: The true you; aligned and congruent self imagestaturevaluesbeliefsgoals, behavior, word, and public image.

Becoming Authentic

To become your authentic self begin by knowing yourself. Understand: human nature, what you can change and what you cannot, your own personality traitslearned behaviors, and your valuesbeliefs, sense of justice, needsgoals, and motives. Integrate these to form your personal model for human interaction. Analyze the events, choices, and people who have contributed to your self-spiral throughout your life. Understand what guides you throughout your life. Discover your signature strengths, and the basis of your true stature. Then apply those signature strengths toward your authentic goals. Become an authentic person by aligning your self imagestature, and public image. Have the courage to acknowledge your limitations and embrace your vulnerability. Gain the confidence to be humble. Choose to be content. Work toward integration, alignment, and congruence of what is with your valuesbeliefs, and actions. Express yourself authentically. Do what you say. Do who you are.

So here we go, with all the good intentions one can muster.
