A Lenten Reflection

Give up complaining; focus on gratitude.
Give up pessimism; become an optimist.
Give up harsh judgments; think kindly thoughts.
Give up worry; trust Divine Providence.
Give up discouragement; be full of hope.
Give up bitterness; turn to forgiveness.
Give up hatred; return good for evil.
Give up negativism; be positive.
Give up anger; be more patient.
Give up pettiness; become mature.
Give up gloom; enjoy the beauty that is all around you.
Give up jealousy; pray for trust.
Give up gossiping; control your tongue.
Give up sin; turn to virtue.
Give up giving up; hang in there!
