We asked our lovely community if they were giving up something or taking up something for Lent this year. It felt like a loaded question, in a period when a lot has been taken away from us, and home comforts have taken on more of a role in our self care. Giving up things is bit more well….awkward this year.
Some of you were giving things up, but often this was more of a conscious reeling in of a behaviour… less moaning, less grumbling, or on the flip side, more gratefulness, more intentionality, more joy. Maybe this reflects that there are less physical things to give up, and maybe we have become more reflexive during our lockdown journey.
