Pattern Occurring View - Lent

So today is the first day of Lent. As a Christian i believe that having self-control is a gift that needs to be practiced.  In this day an age of instant gratification it is so easy to just go from one pleasure to the next and forget where all our blessings come from.  So Lent is an ideal time to stop and asses what we truly desire, need and be thankful. Hence I am going sugar free for 40 days. So this is the only way to get my sugar fix :(   I know this is going to be a hard one but i am going to lean on my faith and God's strength to get me through. Wish me luck, i'm addicted to the white stuff (sugar), hee hee. What are you challenged to let go of or add into your life to help you refocus?
