Wednesday marked the beginning of Lent, my personal favorite liturgical season.
It is the beginning of spring for me.
It is a time for renewal.
It can mean whatever you want it to mean.
One thing I do during Lent is to do acts of service.
Again, this can mean whatever you want it to mean.
This year, to me, it means I go out of my way to say kind things to co-workers.
I mean, who else am I going to see in this year?
(Covid numbers are down, please don’t be stupid.)
I perceive myself to be severe.
I am no one’s pick for the popular squad.
However, I am everyone’s pick for trivia.
I know I have a tendency to get wrapped up in my brain.
Thinking my thoughts.
Making my plans.
Thinking of all the thousand of details that encompass a shift in the OR.
This allows me to get out of my head for a little while.
To really focus on others and what I can do for them.
Why be kind?
