For the past several years I have done pretty much the same thing for Lent: give up social media, write a gratitude letter every day to important people in my life.

I can't give up social media this year. Maybe I'll try to take a step back from posting, but considering part of my job duties are related to social media, it'd be pretty tricky to navigate that.

And the letters? I am not doing 40. It's a fun project and I love to hear people's reaction to them... But... After four years of doing this, they start to get repetitive. 

Instead, this year, I am changing it up a little.

I am going to try to drink only water, and decaf tea. That means no coffee. I drink about 4-6 cups of regular coffee a day, so this will be difficult. But I am ready! 

The second thing is that I am going to do a random act of kindness each day. And I don't mean opening the door for someone or saying "thank you". Those are things we should all be doing anyways. I am going to do things like send flowers to friends, buy an item for a stranger off their amazon wish list, give things away, make dinner for my neighbors. I am open to ideas from you all, as well.

And who knows? Maybe some of those random acts WILL BE gratitude letters. :)

If you celebrate Lent, I would love to hear what you all are doing. 

I also want to know if you want to hear about my random acts. I know of a girl who did a random acts project and posted daily about what she did. What do you think?

Have a great week!

Do what you feel is best for you and for your love of Christ. You have been doing this for a long time. You are the only one who knows what is right for you.
