I heard a service about lent that changed the way I think of it. Instead of "giving up" something, think of it as "making an improvement" in your life.. whether it is to exercise to get a healthier body, or don't think of it as giving up tv, think of it as getting more involved and playing games with the family instead. Use lent as a time to improve yourself.

Since I am limited on exercise at this time due to a back problem, my choice for lent is to journal something positive about myself each day and to "give thanks" for it and for the things in my life that are positive each day.

I definitely like that outlook on lent. I was trying to figure out what I wanted to give up as well. I am working on changing a lot right now so to decide what to do for lent was the challenge. I started my membership at the fitness center today, and currently working on a new menu for my family, and preparing a family night every friday night. So I guess it is not what I am giving up, it is what I am gaining.
