It's a mind over matter day. If I don't mind, it won't matter. Doing without is something all Catholics should be able to deal with... after all Lent is 40 days of fasting. So a day plus on clear liquids is no biggie. the thing with fasting id that we often end up realizing what we once thought we couldn't do without, we most certainly can.
Today I read a wonderful blog from ON2VICTORY, the following struck me.
- Will it be perfect? Of course not, nothing ever is the first few times much like passing a dull knife over a sharpening steel. Keep at it and it will be perfected to a razors edge.
- I am excited about focusing on this issue because eventually I will be able to successfully manage it rather than being constantly being knocked to the ground.
This all reminds me of my granddaughter as she is learning to walk, Does she quit? No she keeps practicing , getting stronger and slowing making progress. She has some good days and others not so good. It is taking months of practice. Will she succeed, of course. If my baby girl can succeed so can I. I just need to keep practicing and one day it will just click.
So I will work toward that creating that razor edge. I can manage my life, instead of it managing me.
