Good Riddance Day Contest

Info on the “Good Riddance Day Contest” landed in my inbox, and I knew I had to share it with you all.  Even the most well-adjusted person has at least one thing that they would like to bid “Good Riddance.”  Others may have two or twelve things that they would like to eliminate from their lives.  Getting rid of emotional debris can’t always be achieved through a shredder, but you must admit that getting rid of some of it makes the load lighter.  

Make a quick review of 2012.  Is there anything there that is displeasing? If not, just skip this contest. Meanwhile, if your 2012 looks like a minefield of spent emotional grenades, this is a good way for you to make something good out of it. And if one of those bad things you bid good riddance to was a relationship, you should feel free to send him/her a postcard after you win.  I’m just saying…

Sound off in the comments if there is something in particular that you think needs to be kicked off your island!
