It’s that time of year for me: Ash Wednesday. This year I am giving up fried food and online shopping. My focus this year is to avoid distractions in whatever form. It could be television, social media, and he’s, even friends. I really want to spend the next 40 days focusing on improving myself and simplifying my life. However, this goes beyond 40 days and it doesn’t matter what you believe to work on yourself! #ashwednesday #catholic #lent
