Heyyyyyy guys! Today is Ash Wednesday, which is also the start of Lent. So I decided to talk about Lent, which is something I haven't done before on my blog.
Whenever Lent comes around, we're always hesitant to give up something that we love. Well, this year, I don't want to treat Lent like it's some practice I don't want to do but I have to or else I won't be a good Christian. But how should I treat it then?
Today, when I went to get ashes on my forehead, the priest defined Lent not just as a time when we give something up, but also to re-center our will to God. In other words, it's a time when we focus on God and be free of distractions.
Now, before today, the concept of getting ashes on my head was just a Catholic thing and I didn't really bother asking questions about it. But now, though my family and I are non-denominational Christians, it's still something that I think all followers of Christ should keep in mind; the fact that from dust we came, and to dust we will return.
I was pretty hesitant to talk about this today, as my family never really made Lent a big deal. (I remember my first Lent- giving up chocolate!) Honestly, I think that was a mistake... whenever Lent comes around, I should observe it as I would Easter or Christmas.
I don't know what I am giving up for Lent, but Lent doesn't mean I have to give up something. It could also be a time for spending more time with God, and I think that is what I'm going to do.
So I know this blog has been drastically different from my last one, and totally on the serious side (and my thoughts were kinda scattered), but I really wanted to reflect on Lent and what it means to me :) stay cool everyone, and cya later!
