My word for 2010:



A bunch of my online friends at Quiltart, “an internet mail list for contemporary quilters,” are picking words to motivate and inspire them for the year 2010. A sort of mantra to keep yourself on track, and mindful of your purpose or path.

To me, authentic means:
being true to one’s own personality, spirit, or character
being actually and exactly what is claimed
being genuine
having good faith and sincerity of intention
being reliable, trustworthy, bona fide
being free from hypocrisy or pretense
being original, not false or imitative

Here are words others in the Quiltart group have chosen for 2010:
Grow
Focus
Journey
Explore
Challenge
Bold
Balance
Work
Cultivate
Territory
Experiment
Innovate
Fun
Survive
