'Tis the Season of Lent! A Time to Self Deny, (Meat) Fast, & Pray. Call me crazy, but every year I look forward to the Season of Lent. YES, partly because lent typically signals that March 31 is vastly approaching, but also because I love the self reflection and clarity that this season tends to bring. Simplicity is Happiness, Happiness is Simple. This year I am enjoying 40 days, stripped of unnecessary purchases, unnecessary thoughts, and unnecessary actions. I plan on filling my time with unmaterialistic people doing unmaterialistic activities. OH, and it helps that I will be RUNNING approx 89.99% of my time away in the next 4 weeks!
