Breath In, Breath Out, Move On...

As we begin this Lenten Season you hear the scurry of everyone trying to give up something. I too, have been in that group from coffee, chocolate to wine, you name it we have done it. This year I have been trying to figure out what to do and it struck me this morning as I was sitting here, rather than give something up why not change one of my behaviors to a positive. So then I started thinking again what do I change?

As I was sitting here with Junior Mint I had Jimmy Buffett playing on the computer and one of my favorite songs came on, "Breath In, Breath Out, Move On" from Take the Weather With You, fabulous album by the way. I was listening and one verse just spoke to me,

..."According to my watch the time is now
Past is dead and gone
Don't try to shake it just nod your head
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On..."
I decided for Lent I am going to be more forgiving and not let the small stuff get to me, its just small stuff. There are so many other issues in this world to think about other than "he said, she said". Yes, once again brother Jimmy has said it so true.
What changes have you decided to make this Lenten Season?


  1. What a great idea! I really love this!

  2. I too like that...instead of giving up something, I like the idea of trying to change someting into a positive.
