But I did find picture when I was going through my Flickr account looking for something else and I was sort of inspired to try it again. I figured that Lent was coming up, why not?
(I’ve tried this before. I don’t remember how far I got. I think I finished it?)
I’m pretty sure you know by now I’m not a practicing Catholic – more like “recovering”, but if you’re new here, now you know. Why bother with Lent then? I like the idea of giving up something or using it as an opportunity to better myself. The question becomes, what should I give up or what should I do to better myself?
With a theme of 40, here’s what I aim to do for this Lent.
- Run 40 miles
- Do 40 nice things
- Finish 40 projects that have already been started.
- Donate 40 items
- Throw away 40 items
- Read 40 pages a day (this could be work or free reading)
And I decided that peanut butter and I are taking a 40 day break. As I told a friend the other day when I finished another jar of the magical goodness, “I’m a little embarrassed about how much peanut butter I actually eat.”
Did you give up or add something for Lent? Do you eat as much peanut butter as I do?
