Figuring out all the world's problems

Monthly Archives: February 2013

Today is the first day of the Lenten season. While I may not do my religion like others do, I still do some things every one does.

Like Lent.

While Lent is meant to bring you closer to God thru sacrifice, I use as a reset. We are far enough away from New Year Resolutions to have slipped. So, this is a good time of year (close to spring) to clear things out and start over. And that helps me strive to be a better person, which I know makes God happy.

I’ve given up lots of things in past years — Taco Bell, buying food in the cafeteria at work, cussing, meat. I’ve also taken up things – exercising, being positive, writing every day on this blog. All of them made an impression, but few of them stuck long term.

This year? No eating after 9 pm. Let’s see how this goes.

How can a day that starts out with this be bad?

How can a day that starts out with this be bad?

We all complain about Mondays. It is human nature (at least all the humans I know). I’ve been thinking lately, though. Most of the time I dread or complain about something it turns out bad. Is that because I *knew* it would be horrible or did my attitude make it happen?

So, I’ve decided to try something new. I’m gonna attempt to be positive. Well, maybe let’s start with just not so negative. Let’s see what happens. It can’t be worse, right?

What is one thing that you do without thinking that you can flip?
