Despite my initial first week of Lent, I did manage to keep my Lenten resolution this year: Keeping my temper while driving! The first week was extremely hard as I documented here and I went through an entire bag of Milky Ways! (read my earlier blog to find out why I was eating chocolate during Lent.)
But it really is true if you keep working at breaking a habit for several weeks, you will eventually break it. And I did! I began to calm down during my drives, I was even praying for other drivers and myself to be a courteous driver. And, I am happy to say, did not have to resort to any more bags of Milky Ways! (my hips thank me for that too!)
I learned a Lenten lesson that you can change your personality if you try hard enough and have a good reason: all the sinning I was doing by getting angry in my car! So, trying to do positive things should work the same way, keep at it for several weeks and you are becoming a more positive person. It's worth a try!
Happy Holy Week to all my friends/readers out there and a very blessed Easter! Remember that God loves us no matter what, but we have to work on ourselves, getting better, mastering the humanness in ourselves by praying, receiving the Sacraments and most of letting God in our lives!
God bless all of you!
