I would like to start this by saying that I am not at all religious but I like certain religious holidays, like Christmas, Easter, and other food related holidays! I do like Lent and Ramadan for non-food related reasons. I feel Lent and Ramadan are perfect occasions to better yourself in one way or another.
I don't believe in denying myself something for the time since I don't really see how that will enrich my life but rather I like adding something to my life.
As you may know the first day of the Lent was yesterday and I have been thinking for a long time what my goal this year should be.
I finally decided on a goal that I believe will help me both mentally and physically. I set myself the goal to write for 40 minutes a day.
I plan on not using these 40 minutes to write for school but more for my pleasure. Therefore I can write in my diary, on the blog, some poetry, short story or work on my novel.
Did you set yourself any goals for this years lent?
