It's lent. And that means people everywhere are posting facebook statuses about giving up chocolate & pretending that fish isn't a meat. 2 years in a row I've given up alcohol for lent, which was really refreshing the first time around but not really a challenge anymore. Time for a new lent plan.
As I was thinking over all the things I could give up or add on, I kept coming back to one thought: I just want to be better.
Winter's been a tough one. It shows in my attitude, in my energy level, in my waistline, & in my snarky comments. But I know myself well enough to know that I function best when I'm healthy & on top of my game. Lent is about spiritual sacrifice & discipline which leads to growth, but I feel like amping up my everyday discipline will put me in a better place for that too. I'm not adding on additional goals, I'm just trying to meet the ones I should already be following but tend to slack on. Healthier mind & healthier body so I can have a healthier spirit.
