{February 22, 2012}   40 Days and 40 Nights: Falling of the Wagon but Starting Over

What’s going on readers. So yes I fell off the wagon COMPLETELY. I went way too hard too fast and ended up being sore for two weeks. So I decided why not restart for Lent starting Ash Wednesday. So during the time in between, I planed and evaluated what I needed to work on. And yes I am Catholic, so Lent is an important time for me.

Two years ago, I went through a significant change in my life. I had fallen and hit rock bottom in my life, and God gave me a second chance. I was reborn again during Christmas time in order to make a change within myself. So during Lent that year, I evaluated what lead me to my darkest moment and worked on it till the present day. And I must say I am a different person now. So each Lent, I vow to make changes, big or small in order to better my life and my relationship with God. So this is what I’ve come up with for a plan of action during Lent.

1. Get fit

Okay Yes I’m small already but that doesn’t mean anything. Being small doesn’t make anyone healthy or fit. So instead of attempting to go everyday, I’m going to workout every other day. I’m going to start off small tomorrow by going for a run early in the morning and then do core workout at night. Rotation will be every other day until I can handle an everyday rotation.

2. Get Organized

My mind is full of clutter so I decided to keep a day planner with me at all times. This way I can be less stressed and better prepared for all my projects. As I see it, life is getting real now so I need to build strong organizational habits for my clients.

3. Budget

I am horrible at this one and I know I can do better. So all of lent I will not be purchasing anything. I’m going to learn self control in regards to money and really start building a savings, especially since I’ll need it before and during the time I take the bar.


4. Letting go of fear

This is one is hard to explain but there’s something I’ve been fearing that I don’t want to fear anymore. So during these 40 days, I’ll seek guidance through meditation, God, and who ever God leads me to for answers, well pieces to the answer.

Now I have a couple more but those are more personal. But any in case, I hope you all enjoyed Madi Gras aka Fat Tuesday. You’ve partied, indulged, and enjoyed the holiday and now it’s time renew yourselves. Use this time to really connect with God for piecing together the answers you need to build or fix your relationship with God and yourself. To fix vices and build brand new habits. A lot of times we let the world discourage us from being the best we can be but this is the time to change that. God is waiting with hands wide open and strength to give. Remember he does not judge us or punish us for where we have fallen but patiently waits for us to come back home and give us strength to overcome.

So Day 1 begins to day and remember email me with your progress and stories for me to feature.
