I don’t normally ‘do’ Lent but I guess it’s not a bad thing giving up something, particularly if it’s something not good for you, or something that makes you think more about your life. So this year I’m not giving up chocolate, or coffee, or even Facebook! I’m giving up moaning. I don’t think it’s going to be easy, particularly when things are not so good at home at the moment. (I lost my car today, but I’m not moaning because it’s not as if I can drive anymore!) We also have another funeral on Monday, a close family member, and I’ve had to arrange it all along with my Other Half. But, grief and mourning are not really moaning, it’s a natural process which we cannot deny ourselves.
I will however, not be sweating the small stuff. I’m going to bite my tongue at minor issues that I’d normally complain about. I’m going to be nice to my family all the time (oh wow! how tough is that?)
And I’m definitely not going to be posting Facebook Status’ full of gripes and woe.
No, it’s positivity all the way for me, well, at least for the next forty days….and then it will be Easter, my favourite time of year (not just because of the chocolate!)
