I’m never very good at keeping New Years Resolutions, but Lenten resolutions are much easier for me because they actually make me feel closer to God.
I am a contributing writer for CatholicMothersOnline.com and I recent wrote a post about First World Problems and gratitude. If you haven’t heard of “First World Problems,” it’s a funny way of saying “I’ve got a great life, but I complain anyway.”
With this in mind, these are my Lenten resolutions this year:
- Quit complaining.
- Quit gossiping.
- Be grateful for all my blessings.
- Simplify and de-clutter my home and my mind so I can really appreciate what I have
When I have the urge to complain or gossip, I’ll say a silent prayer instead, thanking God for the blessings in my life.
For a more details about my thoughts on gratitude, please read my article at CatholicMothersOnline.com.
