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.
