The beginning of Lent

Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. A Christian tradition in which through prayer, penitence, almsgiving and self-denial - believers prepare for Easter.

For those who celebrate Easter many of you have told me what you intend on giving up for Lent.

The quickest way to appreciate something is to deprive yourself of it.

The best way to make yourself feel better is to stop doing things that make you feel bad. (Duh! Right? But many of us only focus on what we want to do more of. As opposed to what we want to do less of.)

Let's say Lent wasn't 40 days. It was only a week. And let's pretend for a second you could only focus on how good it would make you feel, if you gave that 'thing' up.

You couldn't focus on how hard it would be. Or how uncomfortable you'd feel. Or how challenging it'd be.

Got that one thing?

Remember: You'd be giving up something that makes you feel bad. Using it or eating it or doing it makes you feel bad after you're done. Just for a week though. Starting today.

I got mine.

What's yours?

Now what if I said, instead of a week, it'll be just for a day.

Less scary right?

Let's try it just for the day. Even if you already did it, or ate it, or used it, that's okay!

For the next 24 hours, starting right now, let's have our own mini-lent. (For those already giving something up for Lent, pick something else.)

We'll call it Disco.

Disco begins now...
