What about trying to put the following into practice this Lent?

Give up complaining... focus on gratitude.
Give up pessimism... become an optimist.
Give up harsh judgement... think kind 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... practice patience.
Give up pettiness... put on maturity.
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.

"All I want is to know Christ... and become like him in his death, in the hope that I myself will be raised from death to life." - Philippians 3:10-11
