nope, we're not catholic, but the practice of lent is very interesting to me and i'm looking forward to the experience as well as drawing closer to God in a new and different way.
one portion of lent is that you're "asked to" not "required" but asked to give up something for 40 days. i have decided to give up chocolate and added sugars. for those of you who know me well, know this is going to be a very tough 40 days. those of you who don't might be thinking, "chocolate, really? couldn't you think of something more spiritual?"
well, it is spiritual to me. i have an addiction to chocolate. i call it that b/c sometimes i can spiral out of control when it comes to the sweet, gooey goodness that it is and there are other times when i can control myself, but for the most part, i indulge. and alot of the time, i feel bad after indulging, bad bodily and mental-ly. so it's something i need to work on and learn to enjoy in moderation.
so here i go....happy lent!
