So on the first day of lent I swore off sugar and swearing. I’m a rule follower so I stuck to it for about two weeks. I only ate the bare minimum of sugar and even had a breakdown (caffeine withdrawals) Then I read something on Twitter and it was something on the order about someone passing away. I reflected on my life and realized I need to value myself. I took the time to realize my accomplishments, my happiness, and invested in what I wanted. I reevulated relationships and had discussions on what would make me happy. It put me on cloud nine to finally be happy with where I am. Though I’m no longer on cloud nine, I’m completely at peace with where I am. I’ve decided to take lent as a growing experience. I’ve learned to loosen up a bit. And that to me is priceless.
