The season of Lent has begun! And call me crazy, but I’m actually excited for it.
Usually this season gets quite lost for me. Between helping my parents with tax season, planning our Aggie Muster, and then other every-day responsibilities… Lent just becomes one thing too many. A couple years ago, I just flat out said I wasn’t giving anything up for Lent. And I’ve often said I’ll do something, and then I don’t even do it on day one.
But this year… this year is different. This year, I’ve made myself a really easy but difficult Lenten promise.
To just do better in general.
Stop finding justification for things that I SHOULD do or not do. As a result my goal is to be healthier. To be more productive. To be kinder. To be more patient. To be closer to GOD. In a round about way, I really will do everything on my ideas for Lent list… just not to a super strict going to do just one thing perfectly… but try harder on all things.
I know I’ll make my mistakes. I know I’ll fail. But failure doesn’t mean giving up. Failure means you just have to try even harder.
I can do this. I WILL do this. No excuses. No justifications. Just do better.
Oh and do a Lent-long Photo-A-Day. I’m definitely doing that, too.
What have you decided to do?
