LENT: what are you giving up?

Posted by   + Show Post

I've don't sweets, soda, even meat.

I want to give up something that matters.

NO BASHING THIS POST. If you don't give up anything, then at least be nice.

 I'm giving up fast food. With working two jobs...and one of them being in the mall...this is going to be quite an interesting challenge since 50% of the time I eat on the run.

This is what I was thinking also. Ill still give something up but once the fourty days is up im not starting it back up.

Quoting kfroz0415:

Nothing. I figure I can give up soda, chocolate, or Facebook for 40 days. Then at the end of the 40 days, I have learned I can go 40 without one of the things I mentioned. 

Each year I try to do something to improve myself. This year I am going to take time every single day to do something extra with each of my boys. I already play with them and help with homework, but I want to do some special, that they choose. Whether it's an extra story at bedtime, making a craft, or playing an extra round of hungry hungry hippos. lol

I am going to do the same with my dh, I want to make it a point to compliment him at least once a day or tell him how much I appreciate how hard he works for our family. I tell him already, but sometimes I think I get complacent with the fact that I know, "he just knows," and everyone likes to hear how much they are appreciated and cared for right?  

Then for myself I am going to try to not worry/stress as much about daily life. If the last basket of laundry sits overnight with unmatched socks it is ok and less important to finish than spending a few extra minutes with my family.

See for me I don't really have anything that I can't live without.
