The Death of Percival P. Prickums. Or At Least, His Long Retirement

We regret to inform our readers that our scheduled substitute blogger, Lizz -- daughter and gnomeslayer extraordinaire of Janiel -- has exhausted herself in her triumphant fight against Sir Percival, and is in bed with a headache and a sore throat. She is waving her gnomeslaying sword in defiance, but nevertheless is needing her snuggie and a good snooze. While we celebrate her smashing of Fanxiety's cousin, Pride, we regret the illness it brought upon her and wish her a speedy recovery.

In the meantime, check out the things one can accomplish when one is not fighting the gnome of Pride - which we're pretty sure is the thing that is actually behind self-doubt, anxiety, fear, and . . . not so sure about Bad Karma. We think Karma can be Bad all by itself. Pride - at least the vain kind Sir Percival is famous for - can make us more worried about what others think of us than what we are doing for others. Which we believe then leads us to un-fun things like: worrying we can't do well enough, or being fearful about the results of our efforts, or being anxious that others won't care, or like it, or approve, or fillintheblank. Pretty sure that if we let go of what others think and just get out there and DO, there'll be a whole lot more of this going on in our lives:

With love and warm wishes for lives of great gnomeless-ness,
