2012 Might be the end of the Mayan calendar...

It might be the end of the world but it is the beginning for me...

I don't care if the world ends in 2012 as long as we all go together.

Eleven is my lucky number - I was born on the 29th day of the month.  When I choose numbers for anything I choose ones that add up to eleven...  47, 56, 83, 29 etc...  If I go to an auction I choose a bidding number that adds to eleven... 155, 128, 173, 92 etc...  I had great hopes for 2011.

Throughout most of the year (2011) it was appearing NOT to be all that wonderful.  I was sick, I was unloved, I felt unlovable.  Those of you who have read my early posts pretty much know how dark 2011 was for me.  That is until the 11th month.

At 11.11am on the 11th of the 11th of the 11th I wrote a wish list.  Since the day after I wrote that list my world has been as different as ice is from fire.  My life has taken a 180 degree turn (should I say a 182 degree turn?).

The first and most substantial change that will occur in 2012 is that I will be relocating from Sydney to a tropical island on the Great Barrier Reef.  I will be living with TLOML who is without doubt the most beautiful woman, inside and out, I have ever had the privilege to love.

Soon I will commence study for my Masters which will give me a focus and an opportunity to succeed.  Most importantly it will give me a viable intellectual activity that I can do while lying down...  I still need to spend a generous part of my day horizontal.

2012 appears before me as the happiest and most fulfilling year of my life and I AM READY!

I am ready to be happy, ready to be loved, ready to love, ready to study, ready to accept my health, ready to succeed, ready to be fulfilled.

If the Mayan's are right that is just fine with me.  If they just ran out of room on the stone well that is fabulous too!


  1. Once again, I can "hear" your heart soaring in this post. :)

    I personally think the Mayans just needed a new personal planner, it's around here somewhere. ;)

  2. What a lovely start to a new year! I've so enjoyed reading your last few posts-- the happiness and gratitude in them is practically contagious.

  3. The good news keeps coming, and it was so long overdue. How exciting your plans are!

    Some years are just hard, and it's amazing how things can turn around in such a short time.

    Stupid question- I don't know anything about your part of the world, so what do people do for work on a tropical island on the reef? Is it mainly tourism like the Caribbean? (sorry if this sounds a bit like others thinking that Canadians all live in igloos and use dogsleds to get around, my ignorance is showing...).

    Oh, I would love to see your part of the world- it's on my list!

    I wish you all the joy in the world this coming year. It's just great to see something (everything!) working out to give you a high quality of life despite fibromyalgia. Great stuff.

  4. What a wonderful start to the year for you - hoping that every day this year is filled with as much happiness as this one is. :-))) Your joy is bouncing out of the computer screen and I can almost hold it in my hand. Bloody fantastic!

  5. Good luck with the move and your masters degree!!
