I'm giving up giving up things.
Afternoon snacks (especially (European) Mars bars). And limiting myself to 3 servings of coffee (latte with breakfast, 2 espressi at work).
The grinding sound the espresso machine in the kitchen here at work makes essentially the sirens song at this point.
I'm giving up Lent for Lent, just like I do every year.
You don't have to necessarily have to give up something for Lent.
What I'm doing for Lent:
Daily Morning and Evening Prayers.
At least one hour of Eucharistic Adoration a week.
Fasting during daylight.
Rosary once a week.
Continuous Novena devotions.
Observe the no meat Fridays tradition.
No Soda and Fastfood.
Volunteering at the Homeless Shelter.
This doesn't apply on Sundays(mini-Easter)
Being Confirmed in to the Catholic Church this Easter so I'm making this Lent significant.
The idea of giving up meat and eating fish needs to be reconsidered. It was once the purpose of that you were giving up a luxury item and eating something austere. Decent fish starts at 12.99 a pound. I bought beef for 2.50 last week.
Drinking beer in a can.
lol, I work at a Sushi place, so I get my fair share of free fish on Fridays.
You should give up posting in red
You should give up spying on your family.
I don't think I'm doing it this year. I usually try and then fail, so this time I'm just gonna go on with my life and try to be a little more intentional/thoughtful about things.
I'm giving up hope in humanity. Does that count?
I gave up eating meat. I started this 'Lent' 22 years ago...
Coffee is my standard. Made a cup last night at 11:30
politics and religion. a friend suggested that i should give up lovin' too, but i countered that since one needs to get lovin' to be able to give it up.
maybe i should give up "not getting any lovin'"...
This season makes me kinda homesick, I miss my mom's Lent cooking
WTF is Eucharistic Adoration? I have been baptized, confirmed, the whole shindig in the Catholic Church and I have never heard of this...
Rubbing the eucharist on your cheek while making cooing noises?
They have the Eucharist out on the alter and people come and sit in the presence of Jesus. Most people pray, students sometimes do homework. I hadn't heard of it until 6 years ago so I think it is a newer (to laypeople) form of prayer and service. Some places only do it during lent.
I'm giving up soda.
