Becky says: What should I give up for Lent?

Posted: Updated:

It's the beginning of Lent. What oh what am I going to give up?  All week, I knew this Wednesday was Ash Wednesday, then today came - and I completely forgot.

Not only did I eat meat already, I haven't figured out what to give up and/or do during the season. For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, you're not supposed to eat meat on Ash Wednesday or Fridays during lent, and you are supposed to do something, or giving something up during the season as well. Accordingly, I know a lot of people who use it as a motivation to diet.

I always feel like giving up some sort of food or drink, for me, isn't all that great. I always want to use the Lenten season to find something to do that will help you be a better person. Each and every year comes and goes, and I never come up with anything all that creative. So then I didn't exactly give up anything, or do anything. Maybe I should just say, no candy bars, and be done with it.

So, here we are again, Ash Wednesday, and I got nothin'. No worries though, I'll figure something out.
