Well lent is already two days old and I have nothing to show for. And I still haven’t decided if there will be.
Mainly this is because I haven’t been thinking lately.
Let me explain…
Maybe this post should be called “void”.
My current life situation (see previous post) is one where I work 50+ hours a week, come home, eat, relax a little catch up on my favorite tv shows (which is a separate post, if I get to it), try and get to sleep knowing that I have to get up far too early to do it all over again. My weekends are consumed with nothing at all, mostly because I need to use the time to recoup from the week that has past (that is if I’m not working 6-7 day weeks).
All that to say, deep thinking has been at a minimum, which in turn has left the blog a bit vapid, anemic and sparse. There have been some good ideas floating around in my head, but the will-power to spend the time and energy to put them down has been lacking.
Not to mention the stresses of financial burden has been impacting me more than I can probably handle. I think in a lot of ways this is impacting my life far more than I’m willing to admit and even in ways that I’m still probably not aware of. (see this vlog and maybe I’ll get some real journaling of my thoughts soon)
So lent has begun and I’m not sure how to feel.
Hopefully I’ll get some time in the next few days to really search about this season of lent and what it will end up meaning to me.
