Lose it for Lent
I'm aware that Lent starts today and while I'm not a believer, I like the challenge of giving something up for 40 days (47?). The problem is deciding what to give up - so much to choose from!
I'm considering sugar, procrastination, complaining, wheat, tea, etc.
I've pretty much decided on clutter generally (mentally, physically & emotionally). Lose the external clutter and internal clutter will follow, so I think that gives me a nice three-pronged approach. Sugar will be the external devil to banish, along with bits & pieces that I've been hanging onto in my room - clothes I no longer like nor wear, books I've not yet read, stuff I've not recycled or thrown away, etc. Emotionally I'd like to fight lack of motivation, fear, this 'lack' mindset that I'm stuck in that keeps me in a semi-permanent state of debt, low-paying jobs, etc.
Add in walking and yoga as and when I can and I think it's a good start. A day late (as it'll be tomorrow now), but at least I have a place to start.
