Lent Is Almost Here!

If suffering is the objective, we've certainly got that covered with these Lenten staples:

Oh well. So be it. I love Lent, actually. Guilt, suffering, and penance are wonderful filters for a dusty soul. The ultimate in spiritual spring cleaning. When Easter arrives, you feel cleansed and in your best form. Deprivation also gives scale to the bounty and abundance in our lives. You just appreciate things more. Even manufactured fish rectangles. Yum yum.

So start figuring out which form of deprivation makes you the most miserable, and come next Wednesday, start suffering. And don't look for Lent loopholes in order to take a break from your misery. Buck up and deal. You'll live.

More on Lent next week. Have a great weekend!
