NEW NECKLACES, EARRINGS, OR ACCESSORIES!!!!!
Today is Ash Wednesday aka the day I give something up. While I was raised Catholic I'm really not a practicing Catholic nowadays but I do like to give something up during Lent. In the past I've given up soda and juice, caffeine, candy, etc. This year I've decided on a few things.
So no more french fries for the next 40 days. Some of you may be thinking "what's the big deal?" Well I LOVE french fries and eat far too many! So yesterday during my layover at the Atlanta airport I had Chick-fil-a complete with waffle fries. My last fries for 40 days!
I'm also giving up necklaces - buying any new necklaces for the next 40 days that is! Now again this may not seem hard but I am OBSESSED with necklaces (and lately earrings and accessories too). I have A LOT of necklaces (see above) and every time I'm in a store and see something I like I just HAVE.TO.BUY.IT! I is an addiction. Haha. So no more for 40 days.
Then maybe I'll treat myself to a new one after Easter while eating a large order of french fries!!!!
I know I can do this. It is a small sacrifice when you think about it. But it is something. It is a way I can remind myself each day about how blessed I have with so many "things" and so many amazing people in my life.
So what are you giving up for Lent?
