How the time of Lent will help me love myself more

Lent is a very special time for many Christians. Lasting 40 days (not including Sundays) starting from Ash Wednesday and ending on Holy Saturday, the day before Easter Sunday. A time where Christians remember how Jesus spent 40 days and 40 nights being tempted by the Devil whilst he was alone in the wilderness.

During the time of Lent many people fast or give up luxuries as a form of penitence. I will not continue to go into the religious side of things as it could bring up heated discussions and that's not my aim of this blog post. This post is a continuation of this months theme of LOVE!


Lent doesn't have to be related to religion. You could use it as a time to work on yourself and personal goals and growth. A good time to work on something to achieve.

During this time I'll be giving up fizzy drinks!!! Only problem is what chaser will I have with my brandy?

It's a perfect time for me to give it up as I have started to train back in the gym. I am working on myself. I WILL have MY perfect body! I said MY as I don't believe in THE perfect body. There is no perfect body! Everyone should aim to have their own perfect bodies instead of idolising others.

I'm out of shape at the moment and can no longer blame it on baby weight when my baby is 4 years old. These fizzy drinks have way too much sugar in them and are so addictive. Let's see how these 40 days will go with just drinking juice and water. I'm sure I'll feel better in myself and be able to see progression.

Along with giving up fizzy drinks I intend to eat more healthy foods and continue to meditate. Connect with the higher spirits and continue to love myself and work on being a better me.

Here are some things you could give up for Lent.
Chocolate
Coffee 
Smoking 
Friday takeaways
Overspending 
Social media???
Sex??? NO WAY!
