For all of you that are non-religious I apologize if this post doesn't interest you. But even if you're not I would still love to hear your feedback!
If you follow me on Twitter you will have noticed by now that I am a Catholic girl and while I know that Catholics are not the only ones to practice Lent I still think that I need to share what I learned in Catholic school about this religious season.
With Ash Wednesday upon us most of us have decided what to give up or are scrambling to figure it out. I always hear people saying well I don't know what to give up. But we don't always have to give things up we can also add things!
The misconception is that Lent is about depriving ourselves of things we love when really it's about setting aside materialist things to get closer to God.
So if you can't think of something to give up why not add something. Set aside 15 minutes everyday to pray or volunteer your time.
I guess what bothers me the most is that people take this time of year to try and complain and boast about how hard it is to give things up. We shouldn't do it for bragging rights we should do it because it's what's in our hearts otherwise don't bother. You will be rewarded by Him not by your peers.
Thank you for listening to my two cents and have a wonderful Ash Wednesday and Lenten season!!
As Always, Stay Classy
