Lent opens us up for lots of soul work.
It's no mystery I have been working on not yelling this year. I do mostly ok for a few weeks at a time. Then something breaks or spills and I loose my crap. I beat myself up a lot on the inside over my perceived failings. I have some crazy baggage from years ago that I still haven't worked through entirely. So when something spills or breaks I feel so out of control over it that I flip out.
I am slow. But I am learning my triggers.
Today alone has been one mess after the other.
discovering so sugar
discovering no cream
missing sponge (dang cat)
all before noon.
Instead of loosing it I stayed calm. I even managed to snap a picture!
covered in powdered sugar
But I am trying.
How is your Lent going?
