I’m rubbish at Lent. There, I’ve said it. I have no staying power at all, I start out with the best of intentions and usually fail by the end of the first day (or second if I’m lucky) – a bit like New Years Resolutions.
With that in mind I’ve decided to approach Lent a bit differently this year. Instead of giving one thing up for the 40 days I’m going to do a series of challenges or activities instead. I was thinking of doing 4 different 10-day challenges and having not come up with any better ideas since I was thinking that, I have just this second decided that’s what I’m going to do.
So for the first ten days (22nd Feb – 2nd March) my challenge is:
Read at least one new piece of Poetry a day
There are several poetry books in my parents’ house that I have never touched. I write poetry – I should read it more. I have no excuse not to stick to this one, even though I’m off adventuring in the middle of it, I will still have train trips and quiet moments where I can sit and indulge in some new verses.
I will report back in 10 days on how I did and try to think up what my next mini Lent Project will be.
