Day 21

An awesome day in Lent land! As this Lent goal takes hold of me more fully, I find myself with a greater zest for life that is not connected to anything in particular except a sense of freedom. Those things that seem to offer us freedom or at least a way out, so often bind us even more closely to our human frailty. The ultimate bait and switch: it looks like free will leading to self expression and fulfilment but it is actually a narrowing of options and a lowering of expectation. I will eat chocolate because that is all I have.

Are you finding insights into your own default choices as you ponder your lent goal and the way you live?
