The Start of Lent

I can’t believe tomorrow is Ash Wednesday. This year is surely flying by. Since I am Catholic, the Easter season is a very important time for me. I always feel like I have a closer relationship to God and my faith during Lent. There are many things that I give ‘up’ and do during the Lent season.

What to not give ‘up’..to many people, Lent is a time to give up something and kick away those bad habits. Sure, every Lent I ban all sugar/processes foods (for the most part) and basically anything unhealthy. However, I always try to do something special during Lent. Last year, I would perform one act of kindness each day during Lent. It could be something as simple as holding a door for someone to paying for someones lunch and volunteering for the day.

Have any of you thought about what you are going to ‘give up’ during Lent? Share your ideas!
