“This year, I am dedicating to finding myself and self care. It’s my mission to be kind to me, and to love myself. I will do so by treating my body well, through a health and fitness routine, eating well and treating myself to vacations, shows, theater, books, hiking, walking, visiting friends and family and simply choosing people and activities that I find joy in.” – Jake May, a recent participant in my ongoing project, The Words We Use.
