we’re eight days into this year’s lenten journey.
i fell behind on my lent journal last weekend but i caught up monday night before settling down to read.
i decided to give up pop for lent, which i wrote amber last week felt superficial but was really out of concern for how i treat my body, this temple in which the Spirit dwells.
i have also decided to stop eating like a shark, i.e. eating whatever i want just because i can. i want to eat healthier and not eating as much junk is, i figure, one good way to start.
it’s actually not too bad so far, so of course in the next five minutes i will have a terrible craving for root beer and it will be a FIGHT.
in lieu of pop i’ve been drinking more water and it’s weird how i actually feel healthier when i do this.
i’m not really sure where i am mentally in all of this. i’m pondering some thoughts unrelated to lent but not in a place to process those publicly yet (if ever).
what about y’all?
