I have some #NewYearsResolutions to share.

You all know I don't use foul language on here, but this iconic warrior trope seems a good place to start 2018.
I've spent 3yrs reporting on Trump's every egregious move. I'll still be doing that in 2018, but I'll also be focusing on women running for office.

Traditionally women have received less/worse coverage than men. That must change. Only news orgs/reporters can change this.

One of my #NewYearsResolutions
is to beat back #cancer.

In 2017 I didn't prioritize my time within the possibility of my death hovering. I must do that in 2018 and I would urge EVERYONE to live more like you have limited time rather than limitless time.

Focus, act, #resist.

Every year #ReadMoreBooks 📚📚📚📚📚 is on my list of #NewYearsResolutions.

This year (with the exception of reviews), I am devoting the first six months to only reading books by women, with an emphasis on books by WOC and #lesbians, whose voices are routinely suppressed.
Too little reporting is being done on marginalized groups--particularly women workers.

One of my #NewYearsResolutions is to do more of that reporting in 2018.

We need to hear from working poor women (80% of working poor)--- invisible millions & majority of min wage workers.
Many of us wasted valuable time and energy debating people unworthy of our time in 2017.

The worst energy drains were the BernieWoulda & #MAGA cults & men(& some problematic women) making excuses for sexual harassers/assaulters.

#NewYearsResolution: block vampires in 2018.

We have all been inculcated with the twin evils of #racism and #misogyny that continue to destroy and even end the lives of women and POC every day in America.

Make it a #NewYearsResolution
to work hard against both in 2018. ✊✊✊✊✊
No one is as invisible as the nation's largest minority group.

That minority is SO invisible, even if you're disabled, you may not know it's the largest.

1 in 5 Americans is #disabled, according to @CDCgov.

#NewYearsResolution: Acknowledge #disability.

#Resistance demands balance.
Embrace #art.
Art too is resistance.
Especially work that centers marginalized voices.
In life under Trump, we must support the work of writers, artists, et al.
Our stories break silence.

Most vital #NewYearsResolution:

Love more.

We must all love more in 2018.

We must love more because love cancels out hate and indifference.

♡Love is inclusion.
♡Love is kindness.
♡Love is listening.
♡Love is giving.
