A true challenge

Day one of my Lenten challenge is already proving to be just that...a challenge. Not the shopping ban, but the "non-complaining, trying to be more positive" thing. I swear it's almost like I'm being tested or something.

I'm remembering this post and this post and have been reflecting on them a bit. Both posts kind of apply to how I'm feeling today, which is really making it difficult to keep up on my challenge. Yet, I am willing to fight and win this battle. I am not going to succumb on day one.

I decided what might help is instead of putting it out here on such a public forum all the time, I'm going to really try journaling for myself in the 40 days of Lent. I think it'll make a difference. And then I'll just check in here from time to time on how the challenge is going.

Each day is a new day and I know some days will be easier.

And to quote Forrest Gump, "that's all I have to say about that."

Back to your regularly scheduled fun loving Beth tomorrow.
