I had a think today and came up with what I want to give up for Lent this year.
Stuff. I’m going to give up actual, physical ‘stuff’.
By that I mean that every day over the next 40 days I am going to pick an item from my house and put it in a bag, and then after Easter I am going to take that bag of 40 things and give it to the charity shop in town.
I will be 40 things lighter and the shop will be 40 things better off.
Hopefully this is going to make me really look at what I have and think about what I need, and maybe also be the start of a new habit that helps get our house a little less cluttered.
I’m not keen on giving up things for Lent and I regularly forget to keep up other projects I try so I am hoping that this one sticks.
What are you doing for Lent?
