Happy Lent, What Did You Give Up?

For the past two years, I would observe lent by following the Daniel fast. The first year it was hard because I was afraid to eat the wrong thing but I quickly caught on and the second year was a piece of cake. It worked so well I considered becoming a Vegan. That was until, I was at dinner with a friend and forgot. I was quickly reminded after I devoured a turkey burger. 2012 started out with a bang as I started a spiritual journey 40 days to my birthday. My birthday was actually a few weeks ago but I am still on the journey:)

As lent approached, I knew I wanted to observe it, but how. Today as friends reminded me that I could still participate, I realized that I needed to do something different. I thought about what I truly wanted to accomplish in the next 40 days and it hit me.

I needed to tackle the cluttering my house and create a plan to keep it that way. I found a wonderful challenge called 40 bags to 40 I am so excited about this. It will surely help me reach my goal of a clutter free home. I already have two bags:)

How are you observing lent?
