The beginning of Lent.
Lent is even better than a Monday and it's better than New Year's Day.
Lent is like a new beginning.
It's a whole season, 40 days, to dedicate and focus on the things that are important.
God. Family. Self.
Some other words that come to mind for the season are: reflection, kindness, prayer, gratitude, sacrifice, generosity.
A trait each week for me to focus on.
Last year I was inspired by my friend Lisa to get rid of 40 bags of items in 40 days. It was hard.
Getting rid of stuff = Time for more important things (in other words less time organizing, tidying, keeping track of these said items.)
This is once again my dedication for Lent.
In addition I have to recycle 40 books. 40 shoes. & 40 outdoor items. (Going out to the garage is a HUGE commitment. People it is COLD here!)
To go along with my sacrifice I have decided I won't go to any thrift shops, antique stores, or buy any items off Craigslist. The point is: Getting rid of stuff = Time for more important things
I have a giant box filled with items in my room, ready to be loaded in the car. But not until... tomorrow...
Does this count you may ask? Can she pre-hoard her items to get rid of?
I am totally counting this box.
Box #1 is ready.
