Lent 2021 Weekly Reflection

We really need grace to run this race. It is not a sprint, but a marathon. We must be able to sustain for the long haul. Although 40 days may seem like a long time, it really isn't. History says it takes 17 days to break a habit if you stop doing the thing you are doing for the entire time without a break between the days. Replace something that you want to do with the thing you don't want to do. In may case, as with Lent, I am replacing not exercising with exercising. If you haven't done something in a while, just start small like 1 minute a day. Try to multiply it the next day. For example: Day 1--1 minute, Day 2( 1 x 2) plus Day 1 = 3 minutes. Day 3(1 x 3) plus Day 2 = 6 minutes, Day 4 (1 x4) plus Day 3(6 min.) =10 minutes Day 5(1 x 5) plus Day 4(10 minutes) = 15 minutes. Day 6(1 x 6) plus Day 5(15 min.) =21 minutes. By Day 7 you are already at 28 minutes. So on an so forth. Before you know it you are at the goal per day that you wanted to be. Whether it's 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 30 minutes or more per day. We can use this formula for any goal we are trying to obtain. For example saving. Just put in the amount per day like the above formula, pennies, nickels, dollars, twenties, or whatever you can. You may be trying to read more, go on social media less, or love more. Try the formula for 17 days. Once you reach the 17th day, you will be so inspired you will want to maintain or continue your progress. Marathon not a sprint.
