Lent is here again, which means I’m giving up things in order to make myself a better person.
Step one: procrastination.
I waste so much time doing things that I become so behind in the important matters at hand. I’ll be honest, my laziness causes me to sleep through my Sunday masses, and this has to stop. I’m once again giving up tumblr this season I’ve actually been pretty good about not getting on tumblr that much since last year. I’ve picked up a worse addiction: NETFLIX. Giving this one up will be hard, but I’ve got to stop binge watching TV shows.
Step two: temperance
I’m usually good at this, but I love being able to practice my self control. I’ve learned to cut back on not always eating out this past year. For my personal tradition, I’m going to once again give up eating out (give or take a few special occasions). This means no more satisfying my cravings and even refraining from buying guilty pleasure foods from the groceries. Also, I give up eating meat on Mondays and Wednesdays as well as the obligatory Fridays. Sometimes saying no to yourself is a step forward in saying no to sin.
Step three: get closer to God
Over the years, I’ve really lost my touch with the Lord. I always conscious of the fact too. I used to be super good back in high school. Now that I’ve gone to college, I had too much freedom and lost sight of the big picture. I definitely need to pray more, and think more of God so we can reestablish that bond again. /
Soooooo I’ll see you guys in 40 days!!
