mum's thoughts, Lent,  lenten reflections
I have stumbled upon this beautiful Lenten message which I would love to share with you. This is a list of things to give up. Very practical, in my opinion, + something we ought to ponder on this Lenten Season. Here goes:

Give up complaining —– focus on gratitude.

Give up pessimism —– become an optimist.

Give up harsh judgments —– think kindly thoughts.

Give up worry —– trust Divine Providence.

Give up discouragement —– be full of hope.

Give up bitterness —- turn to forgiveness.

Give up hatred —– return good for evil.

Give up negativism —– be positive.

Give up anger —– be more patient.

Give up pettiness —– become mature.

Give up gloom —– enjoy the beauty that is all around you.

Give up jealousy —– pray for trust.

Give up gossiping —– control your tongue.

Give up sin —– turn to virtue.

Give up giving up —– hang in there!
