Hope you had a great celebration of Mardi Gras this past week! We had a bonfire for getting rid of some old stuff and then had a pancake dinner to honor the tradition of the night before Lent begins. I did a little research to discover why we eat pancakes on Shrove Tuesday and it comes from old times in Europe where the celebration included eating food typically not eaten [for penance] during the Christian season of Lent. Since Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, the last night to eat the rich foods [fat, butter, eggs] was on ‘Fat Tuesday,’ or Mardi Gras in French.
Most people don’t give something up during Lent anymore, although I remember giving up chocolate or candy or a favorite TV show when I was growing up. I think it’s more important in these times to bring in something new and embrace a practice or new habit during the days leading up to the Springtime. Why not decide to do some practice for personal growth? Journal, meditate, get out in nature. Get with a buddy or coach or mentor and explore some new ideas. Figure out what your Life Purpose really is and commit to living that purpose.
