Moment of Reflection - Preparation for After
Friday, March 06, 2020
Today I took a moment, okay a long moment so that I could have time for reflection. And I am so glad that I did. In my morning Lenten readings I read about using the 40 days of Lent to help prepare for the temptations after Lent. This also made me think about the BL Spring Challenge that I just signed up for. Both of these events are helping me to prepare for what is beyond them. They provide their own challenges for a brief amount of time that I will struggle with. But ultimately they are helping to ready me for the temptations that lie beyond their time lines. I am a creature of habit and I struggle with change. It causes me to become uncomfortable. But, if I use the discomfort as a catalyst to improve my inner defenses by establishing better practices (for example, when I do laundry roll each of gym outfits with everything together when I put them up, or when I get home from the gym automatically reloading my gym bag) I will be better prepared for hiccups that happen. This is a long road that I will not be speeding down it so that I can do my best.
