Are you giving up anything for Lent?

I'm not Catholic but I do give up something for Lent each year. It's like a reminder to stop for self-reflection. This year I'm giving up sweets. Next to wine and coffee, this is the absolute hardest for me let go. My co-workers will likely beg me to have a cookie before the end of the first day. Anyone else giving something up for Lent?

Not since I graduated Catholic school 19 years ago.

Maybe I'll cut down on my screen time. I doubt I'll be able to give it up completely, let's be realistic! But it might be a good idea to limit it.

I'm going to give up arguing on Cafemom for 40 days and 40 nights and try really hard to just be nice. I probably won't make it 5 minutes, but I'll try.

Good luck with that. You should really make it into a drinking game instead.

'Tis ok. I'm a former Catholic turned atheist. If I fail, no harm, no foul.
