Sometimes it helps to look at things with a new perspective. Here is the Orthodox perspective on Lent.
“The Lenten season is meant to kindle a ‘bright sadness’ within our hearts. Its aim is precisely the remembrance of Christ, a longing for a relationship with God that has been lost. Lent offers the time and place for recovery of this relationship. The darkness of Lent allows the flame of the Holy Spirit to burn within our hearts until we are led to the brilliance of the Resurrection.” (Alexander Schmemann)
Ponder that one today and may you long for your relationship with God in any ways that it may be lost.
