How Did Lent Work This Year?

To be honest, this year’s lent I focused a lot on how I couldn’t eat sweets…

I was a little bummed that I did, but then I realized the other thing I had given up for lent - being negative to myself.

Though I wasn’t super aware of how I did in that realm during these past 40+ days, these past few days have shown me how I have improved on loving myself.

I lost weight this lent. Roughly 3 lbs. I think it was mainly because of cutting out sugar - well sweets, cannot give up fruit. I also really starting becoming more aware of what I am eating.  I made sure I had vegetables very day, ate less fruit, made sure if I had a lot of carbs during one meal, I wouldn’t eat carbs for the rest of the day. I was taking care of my body.

And it wasn’t to be skinny, it was all to be healthy. And that in itself shows that I am loving my body. I care for what I am putting in my body and make sure to not over indulge or over eat. When I feel full now, I stop eating. The difference in being satisfied and overly full astonishes me and makes me wonder how I ever over ate before.

After this lent, I realized I am not perfect and never will be. I will have great days where I feel confident and beautiful and horrible days where I feel scared and ugly. And all of this is ok. I am a beautiful person either way and I will continue to strive to live a physically and mentally healthier life.

I will definitely be able to be more confident with myself - it’s gonna take work, but I can do it.

Libraries in many big cities often serve as de facto homeless shelters — a place for people living on the streets to find quiet and warmth — and it can make others, there to just check out books or videos, uncomfortable. 
KQED’s Scott Shafer reports that’s why the San Francisco Public Library has hired a full-time social worker. She spends her days roaming the library floors, keeping an eye out for regulars who look like they could use her help. And sometimes she hires the formerly homeless patrons she’s helped, like Joe Bank, to do outreach under her supervision.

Amazing. :)

This.

Though I wouldn’t agree with being afraid of every white man (dating one and have nothing to worry about), but this is a valid point. 
Stop racial profiling and realize ANYONE can do ANYTHING terrible.
