It seems as though the Lenten season is upon us. It's that time of year when Winter slowly...oh so slowly...begins to fade into Spring. When the multiple layers of outwear begin to shed and the sunlight lingers a little longer. I like this time. You get the cozy Winter nights and crisp Spring days.
For years I have partaken in the practice of giving something up for Lent. I am not a particularly devote religious practicer but this has been a ritual I enjoy. It's a challenge. By giving up something you make space in your life for new possibilities. In years past I have given up Chocolate, Pizza, Salty snacks, Facebook and Alcohol to name a few (the last one will never EVER be repeated). However this year I have struggled to figure out what to give up. After much thought and some encouragement from facebook friends later, I have decided that instead of giving something up, I will take something on. That something will be...blogging!
Clearly I have struggled to get back in the game, and this feels like a perfect kickstart back to the blogosphere. So for the next forty days (and I actually think its ends up being more if you count Sundays in the equation) I will write something every day. It will be good for me to make time for writing again, and it will force me to share so many of the thoughts I have been thinking over the past few months. I look forward to sharing it all with you!
So here we go...
