I don’t consider myself a religious person, but I do admit that I am spiritually inclined. So when I overhead someone mention that Lent was beginning soon, I was immediately inspired. The idea of devoting a length of time to giving up some of my bad habits and incorporating healthy ones seemed to make sense.
In fact, the whole meaning of Lent is to sacrifice in order to prepare oneself for spiritual renewal symbolized by spring. I had a rough winter, in fact I had a rough year. Full of challenges and obstacles that seemed impossible to bear at times.I am completely and fully open to a new beginning even if it means giving up some of the worst parts of myself.
