Lent is such a funny thing. I really respect the origins of it and I think there are people that still honesty partake in Lent to set their focus in accordance with God.
For the most people today though, lent has become more of a fashion accessory or a â€œhey, look at meâ€ kind of ordeal. People even attempt lent in none religious way but more so to challenge themselves to over come things. I am no exception.
For me, this year, I am starting lent late. As of today I am officially going to prepare all of my own meals. I do this for a couple of reasons.
1: I eat out way too much
2: My cash flow is taking a big dent.
3: I buy lots of groceries and never get around to eating them
4: I can invite people over to eat with me and learn their cool cooking ideas (Dave, Steph â€“ this means you!!!!!)
5: Women are impressed with a guy who can cook so this can be my fish hook if you will.
6: I like cooking
