Part 144 - Shrove

v. To confess

· mind,body,joy,consistency

Lot's of people see Shrove Tuesday (Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras) as a party and a parade and nothing more.

This one night of debauchery is rooted in the pending lenten season and its ritual of fasting. Giving something up for lent.

I'm not Catholic. I do not celebrate Lent. I do, however, see the benefits of occasional fasting.

Go ahead and party it up tonight, if you must. But do so with intention and awareness. Maybe give some thought to a few weeks of fasting. Give up something unhealthy. Just a thought.
