‘Most of us are under pressure, external and internal, to do everything, be good at everything, be accountable to everyone for everything.  It is not so.  In the divine economy each of us has a particular grace, gift and devotion.  Finding out what that is, and learning how to be guilt-free about not doing everything else, may be part of what our Lenten journey is for.’

(Malcolm Guite, Word in the Wilderness).

And … chill.
