It snuck up on me!
Lent. It’s here! It snuck up on me!
I saw a good one the other day…this year, instead of giving up candy for Lent, why not try to separate from some of the things weighing you down….in spirit!?
Take one thing away per day! It’s that simple. Bring a few of the things you are holding on to to the front of your closet. Make it a point to wear them….especially those things that you haven’t worn for ages….but somehow you can’t part with them. Try it….wear that thing for one day….my guess is that by the end of the day you will feel like you have a new pair of black pants!!! That you love!! And you can’t wait to wear again! But if not, and I think you will know immediately, take that thing off, put it directly into a shopping bag set in the corner of your closet and donate it to a cause that is near you. (Don’t OVER think it!) You will be glad to have it out of your closet…and someone will love to have it!!
This goes for your closet, but the kitchen drawers, those catch all spots that we all have somewhere in the house, too. The serving spoon you got as a wedding present? The chipped and cracked dishes and glasses also.
Then when SHOWTIME! Doncaster Spring/Summer 2016 returns (April 6th or so!) you will be ready to get some beautiful new looks! You will look lovely! And you will feel even better!
Lent has begun….that’s true. But you know what they say….Better Late Than Never!
Think about it. I bet you will be glad that you did!
