For the past few years, I've tried to make the most of Lent. I don't mean to give up [insert here] only to take it up again after forty days. For me, Lent is about searching my soul for what passing fancies I can leave behind from now on in favor of more genuine fulfillment. What can I improve in myself given the focus of Lent, in order to move on the rest of my life?
I seldom discuss religion. Mine shapes my life, but only my life. I don't need to show off. That's one reason I post now, having done the work of Lent, and not anytime earlier.
