one little word

i had my word for 2011.


and it was so fitting and right for 2011.

lots of experiences. not that there isn't every year but this was a mile marker year for me.

now it's time to share my one little word for 2012.

i spent quite a bit of time thinking about my word.

i wanted it to represent the meat of what i want out of 2012.

one word kept rearing it's little head to me.

over and over and over again.

so i knew what my 2012 one little word had to be.

do you have any idea what it might be?

here's a hint:

do you know what it is yet?


that's it. that's my word.




1. not false or copied; genuine; real: an authentic antique.
2. having the origin supported by unquestionable evidence; authenticated; verified: an authentic document of the Middle Ages; an authentic work of the old master.
3. entitled to acceptance or belief because of agreement with known facts or experience; reliable; trustworthy: an authentic report on poverty in Africa.
4. Law . executed with all due formalities: an authentic deed.
5. Music .
a. (of a church mode) having a range extending from the final to the octave above. Compare plagal.
b. (of a cadence) consisting of a dominant harmony followed by a tonic.

and this year? this year i vow to be better at documenting my one little word. i vow to follow along with the one little word class at big picture classes.
