A Chance to Change

I know not everyone is Catholic, but Lent seems to be growing popularity to make a change in our lives. It has been said to make a change, it takes 21-30 days to change and make a new habit. Lent is 40 days, more than enough time to change and create a new habit.

This is not a time to change everything, pick one thing to work on.
It can be anything you want to change or create a new habit in.
If you slip up, begin again.

Some ideas you can think about:

  • Choose to be happy, happiness is a choice and we have to make it.
  • Stop drinking soda.
  • Go for a walk every evening, by yourself or with your family.
  • Do no eat out.
  • Work out three times a week.
  • Turn off the TV and keep it off.
  • Read a book.
  • Practice being alone in the quite. find yourself deep with in yourself.
  • Eliminate sugar.
  • Think about the good that come from a situation.
  • Have a conversation with your spouse every evening, without the kids, TV, any distractions.
  • Donate your time or money to a cause you believe, see the needs of others.

You know what your habit is, what you want to change about yourself to become a better person. Take these 40 days and work on it. What better time to do this than when you know you have the support of so many others.

Wishing you a happy and fruitful Lent.
Saving the world one stick of butter at a time.
God bless,
