Lent, Day 2

This is the beginning of forty days and forty nights of reflection. These first few days are an invitation to collect ourselves for the journey ahead. Put feet on the floor, find our breath. It is a time to make space in our hearts and heads for what the twelve steps call a "searching and fearless moral inventory." For today, just breath and begin to recognize your patterns - mental and emotional - that have been harmful to yourself and to those around you. Welcome to Lent.
