The blessing about having your birthday in January, is that you get to become extra introspective. And resolutions are a hard no.

The beauty about having your birthday in the fresh new year, is the opportunity to be extra introspective.  All this talk about making New Year's resolution has to stop.  Stop and think. 

This is what I know...what we know for the upcoming 2019:

1. Long walks with the dog are mandatory not optional (you define "long").

2. People suck, but I don't have to.

3. A sincere "thank you" goes a long way.

4. Food is fuel, not a substitute for affection or pain.

5. For me personally, a plant based diet was/is healing (trying not to be that annoying person who tells everyone when they first meet...hi).

6. You should not depend upon the anonymity of a keyboard to say something you wouldn't say to someone's face.

7. My body is my body...I decide...what to put in it...who to put on it...etc. 

8. Words matter.

9. Book clubs are a thing...a good thing. (You know any good ones let me know)

10. Love is love.

11. Black lives matter DOES NOT mean white lives don't matter....DOES NOT mean blue lives don't matter... it is not an either or statement.  It is a reminder.

12. My phone and I are not attached at the hip.  We deserve to go on break every now and then.

13. Athletes are overpaid and teachers are underpaid.

Be you.  

These are my truths for 2019.  What are yours?
