Every Day

I was going to give up candy, specifically Rollo’s and Peach Rings, for Lent this year, but I decided that I would never follow through anyway, so why bother.  Besides, I really, really love Rollo’s and Peach Rings, so forget it.  I guess it would be a little hypocritical of me, since I never give up meat on the supposed ‘meatless’ holidays — which I think are absolutely ridiculous. I consider myself a Holiday Catholic and actually enjoy going to Mass on Christmas and Easter — the days ‘real’ catholics usually hate going to church because all of us sinners are taking up the good seats.

Anyway, this was not supposed to be a rant against organized religion, which, could be a very long one, but I am not looking to get into a theological argument.  For me personally,  religion is something that should be there when you feel inspired or need it — not as an obligation — unlike my writing which needs to be written every day instead of just when I feel inspired.

 So what I did do, instead of ‘giving up’ something for Lent was that I decided to ‘add’ something.  I have decided to write a blog post every day during Lent.  Usually I have waited for some news or for something inspirational that happened to me before I write a blog but I am going to try this.  I will write every day until Easter and hope that my writing is jump started since it has been quite lax lately.

I will not be alerting you all by e-mail anymore when I have a new post so if you feel inclined to check in here on occasion please do.  I am sure some days I will have more to say than others.  But even if I have little to say, I am going to post.
