Lent has always meant, no meat on fridays, ash wednesday and the countdown to easter, the day everyone comes to church in their sunday best. But the one thing I always remember was having to give up something. This something was usually a bad habit, unhealthy, or inconducive to my life. I have done no alcohol, no meat, no pork, no cursing and various other things for lent. However this year I want to try something different. Something that would challenge me mentally.
For the next 40 days I want to give up a few things:
- No complaining about something I can fix. I have a tendency to go on a rant about things that annoy me before doing something about it. When I can just shut up and fix it.
- If something truly makes me angry, walk away from it, and get back into my happy space that helps me grow rather than fester the anger
- No Bad Vibes...literally live this to every element possible
These are things that I think we do regularly but don't always take into consideration. I want to be one of those people that are disgustingly happy about 99% of the time. As annoying as they may seem, I just want to be in that lane, happy as shit about life, things going my way, and making sure no one is getting in the way of that happiness. It's always easier said than done when you have to hop on a packed train of inconsiderate people, then go to work with folks who just love to mess with you, and then the packed gym because everyone is getting that summer body ready. Meanwhile, all you want to do is be great in life. So here's to the next 39 days...Pray for me...I will need a lot of guidance and assistance. And if you know me, and see me falling into my ways, please nudge me.
