This is a little late for this year, but a member of my church family shared this Lenten reflection with me last week and I thought it was worth passing along.
Give up complaining – Focus on gratitude
Give up on judgments – Think kind thoughts
Give up on discouragement – Be hopeful
Give up on bitterness – Turn to forgiveness
Give up anger – Return good for evil
Give up gossiping – Control your tongue
Give up pessimism – Be optimistic
Give up gloom – Enjoy the beauty around you
Give up jealousy – Pray for trust
Give up worry – Trust Divine Providence
Give up giving up – Hang in there!
