I hold a lot more stock in the belief of Karma. That you should treat people how you would like to be treated and do unto others what you would do unto yourself. Based on this belief and the happenings and treatment of the last few years, I have some wonderful things coming my way. I just wish they would come now. I also wish that others felt the same way about karma.
So at the beginning of the year, I decided I'd explore faith and try to get back to church...along with yoga and meditation to come to center. The church I go to isn't close so it's a commitment each Sunday to go but it's a little easier if I have plans after or a buddy to go with. One of my new friends is doing the same resolution so we try to meet up and go together. Sometimes other plans get in the way. But it's been a nice exploration so far.
Last Wednesday was the beginning of Lent and so I decided to give up sugar for the following 40 days. I love sugar but I've been finding that I look for something sweet after every meal and that probably isn't helping my weight loss resolution any, especially since I've fallen off the gym wagon. So no sugar for coffee (Splenda ok), no hard candy, no baked sweets and very limited chocolate. I would say no chocolate but I have a stash of Luna and Kashi bars that have chocolate in them plus I pre-paid weeks ago for my ticket to the Chocolate Salon on Sunday.
I'm already dreaming of cupcakes and peanut M&Ms and I'm only 6 days into this little challenge of mine! I hope I survive til Easter! I think I'll have to treat myself to a coconut cupcake at the end of Lent.
Is anyone else giving up something for Lent?
Until next time...
