Beginning of lent
Lent begins on ash Wednesday and ends on holy Thursday, it lasts for 40 days. However, it is mostly observed by Catholics and some other churches, not all denominations place much emphasis on lent. Christians who observe lent normally do a lot of fasting and praying, the main thing they would generally give up is meat. Also lent begins from March 6 to April 18,2019. Here are my thoughts on lent. https://www.britannica.com/topic/Lent
In my opinion, these are a few things we should give up and never go back to after lent:
A lot of us love to gossip and we cause so much harm with our tongue. Sometimes we help to spread a rumor or spread something that is true but not so nice too far. Let us practice to tell others ” I do not want to hear”
Also, gambling has caused a lot of us not to meet our demands
- bills have not been paid
- children going to bed country
- getting evicted
And the list goes on, stop gambling, nothing good can come from it. However, you might say but I win sometimes: how much did you lose before you win.
Meat is a big contributor to a lot of sicknesses we have, take it one step at a time and you can do it.
So many diseases are linked to drinking an excessive amount of alcohol
- liver disease
- brain damage
Those are just a few
It is a fact that most of us buy on impulse. So we end up with a lot of clothes with tags on them in our closet or bag that have started strip. Shoes you have to throw away, that has not been worn, I am so guilty of this. Or you have to throw out food that has gone bad. Let make a pledge to buy only what we need.
Let us show a little more consideration for others.
Stop comparing yourself to others, everyone’s journey is not the same. Be comfortable in your skin and love you just for being you.
Treating You Bad
We all need to take care of ourselves, there is only one of us. Get your adequate amount “Eat well today for happiness tomorrow”

Stay away from negative people at all cost, they will drain you emotionally and physically
Too much social media is not good for your mind, especially if all you do is watch other people’s so-called lavish lifestyle. Just remember a lot of what you see is fake. However, there are a lot of positive persons on social media; those are the ones you should give your attention to. You can learn a lot of things on social media, to uplift you. Follow accounts that will motivate you
Delaying Your Dreams
Invest in yourself
- read books that will help you to harness your dreams
- start that business, you wanted to from last
- do not be afraid to spend money on courses, that will help you
- invest you, put in the hours that are needed to accomplish your dreams
- get rid of doubt
My thoughts on lent are that we should use this time to become a better person
