Give up to Get on Good Friday

Posted on April 2, 2021 under Career & Work

Today in the Christian calendar is Good Friday. ✝️

This signals, for the observant, a day of reflection around sacrifice.

It also marks the near end of a 40-day period of ritual called Lent.

I don't work on Good Friday after 3 p.m. because for me it is THE time of “giving up” my usual duties and surrendering to the mystery.

I used to work on Good Fridays and I found it made me very angry to be working through what is a significant day in the religious calendar.

I'm not particularly observant but out of respect for my culturally Catholic family – living and dead – I do adhere in support of them.

The Lenten season brings up many questions about what we need to let go of in order to gain something more significant.

Today is a spiritually aligned day in the universe to make it happen.

What are you giving up?

For me, I'm definitively deciding what I am and am NOT doing in Q2.

Many blessings to you and your family during the holiday season.
