I joined my sister for the Ash Wednesday mass during my lunch today…marking the start of the Lenton season.
It’s a season of reflection, of giving alms, of ‘fasting’ or giving up your luxuries. In the past, I’ve given up coffee, soda, chocolates…but as I sat there today, I felt some of my burdens going away just breathing in the calm of the room. I knew that it was time for me to let go of my own inner demons, to live my life in a way that embraces forgiveness and change. So this Lent, it won’t be about giving up the donuts or the ice creams. It’s about being a better person and letting go of all that makes me less than that.
I want to be a woman of goodness and grace…and some where in the last few years, I’ve lost a bit of that.
