I know, I'm late to the Annual Thanksgiving Blessing Count. It's taken some considerable pondering and navel-gazing, but I realized that, believe it or not, I am most thankful for each and every Fucking Growth Opportunity that has come my way, as miserable as they have been.

Sounds crazy, no? But since I am still (relatively) sane, I can only assume I am stronger. As I stand here (well, sit here on the couch) staring down my 52nd birthday in a few weeks, I feel like I am doing OK. Damned OK, in fact. Probably better than I can ever remember... doing. Or being. Or whatever.

Now, that being said, I want to make it perfectly clear, Universe, that as grateful as I am for the opportunities I've had to grow and evolve and all that shit, I am NOT volunteering for any more missions in the near future. I'd really like to take 2012 off. Maybe give someone else the opportunity to buff up their karma. My Angel of Death and Mercy outfit is packed away in the bottom of the storage unit and I really don't want to have to go dig it out.

If there's a form or something I need to fill out to make that official, send me a link, OK? You obviously know how to reach me.


  1. I think you're overdue for a break! I'm glad you're okay. :)

  2. Dear Santa,
    All I want for Christmas is a big, fat wallet and a slim body. And don't mix them up like you did last year.


  3. If you sent out holiday cards, that would be the PERFECT one for you. Very well said.

  4. 2012...owes you. Saw this on YouTube it made me think of thyour post.

  5. I hope your 2012 is full of love and laughter. You have a beautiful attitude. I try to be thankful for the hard times that make me grow, but it is a chore.

  6. Liz, I hope your 2012 is filled with nothing but fun, friends, and happiness. Being able to learn from the curves life throws you is a surefire way to make sure you don't have to repeat the experience. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it.)

  7. Agreed. You deserve an uneventful 2012. I hope you get it. On the upside, you're one hell of a survivor. Kudos.

  8. Hardest thing for me to learn (all things are hard to learn until I learn them) was to say "no" without giving reasons or excuses.

    "No" is sufficient.

    Seems to me you've earned a rest.
