The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation; through prayer, penance, repentance, almsgiving, and self-denial.Most believers or followers observe the beginning of Lent on Ash Wednesday, which is today. To simplify it, I received the cross on my forehead for Ash Wednesday today since I am of Catholic faith, and I now need to pick a luxury to give up for 40 days as my sacrifice.
What better to give up than the purchasing of new shoes?
It’s a luxury, and it’s a big challenge for me because, as you all know, I have an affinity for shoes.
The rules are as follows:
- I can not purchase shoes for myself in the next 40 days (aka until Easter).
- I can, however, receive shoes as a gift from other people.
- I can also purchase shoes for other people, like my husband or my daughter.
And to jump start me giving up shoes, I decided to window shop through Reward Style and pick a few of my favorites. It’s the closest to “shopping” that I can get. If you like a few pairs and would like to purchase it, send me a pic on twitter or instagram, as I will live vicariously through you during this time.
