Each year I pray and think about a focus for the contemplative 40 day period between Ashwednesday and Easter: so-called Lent.
Last year I went without the distraction of constantly checking Facebook for 40 days and making more time for prayer and meditation.
This year my focus will be on decluttering my physical space, making more room in my head to pray and spend time with God.
Since I struggle with perfectionism a lot, I decided to pick one thing each day that I find hard to let go of, put it on my table for a day and ask myself these questions the next day:
Is this adding value to my life?
Does it make me happy when I look at it?
If it’s a twofold ‘no’ it’s probably gotta go.
