Hello friends! Happy Thursday! The weekend- and Spring Break- are soooo close I can hardly stand it!!! 😀
I have a fun post coming up for tomorrow including seeking travel advice, but today I thought I’d share some other news 🙂
As you may know, the season of Lent began yesterday with Ash Wednesday. For the next 40 days, Christians all over the world will enter into a period of fasting and reflection to prepare for the celebration of Easter Sunday.
So, what does this have to do with Legal Eats??
Duh, silly- I’m giving up food/drink! To be specific, I’m giving up two of my most beloved things in the whole world
I’m giving up Diet Coke (and all other types of soda) and desserts. Since I literally might die (or murder Schock) if I don’t have any dessert for 40 days, I will be allowing myself one dessert per week. No soda at all though!
— Note: I am going to France, land of delicious food, for several days so I might cheat just a little next week. It would be a travesty not to sample the confections!
I also like the idea of doing something positive instead of just “fasting” on things, so I am going to try to eliminate gossiping for Lent. Gossiping is mean and hurtful and I’m ashamed I do it! Period.
I realize not everyone is Catholic, or any other type of Christian who does Lent, but I still really like the exercise of fasting & giving something up that you really love. It teaches discipline and self-control, and if you do believe in God (or are just spiritual in general) it helps give you a sense of stronger connection to this little world 🙂
So, anyone giving up anything good?? I think I’m setting myself up for quite the personal challenge this year!! 😉
Have a good afternoon!
