It's almost time for Lent! Two weeks away to be exact. I think most of us are pretty familiar with this season, but I wrote a little something about it here last year. Each year it's a time for me to reconnect spiritually and grow deeper in something bigger than me. We all find that in different ways and we honor that in different ways, too.
I like that statement, "something bigger than me." A lot of times I think about how big this world actually is and I often ask how my little self on this planet really can effect everything else. How can one thing I do help or hinder this world?
I know, a bit heavy for a Saturday morning, but it's something I find crosses my mind and can completely fascinate me and totally overwhelm me in a manner of seconds. As I start to entertain that thought I usually shut it down. It's too much. It's too big. I've got to focus on my little corner of the world.
With Lent around the corner, it's a time I think I really should entertain those thoughts now. What if I made some changes sacrificing ease and comfort to make an impact somewhere else?
40 days is all of I've got so trust me when I say I'm not planning on being Wonder Woman and saving the world in that time. What I am saying is I want to make a personal change that will impact something I know I want to help shift in this world.
Normally I find the lenten season to be very personal and I usually keep my focus to myself. This one, however, I think is important to share. It may be something you could try or at the very least make you think a little bit.
Stop by the blog tomorrow and find out what exactly is I'm doing to get me started on this season!
