Lenten Season started yesterday, so is my 40-day fasting. At first, I doubt myself if I can give up things that I used doing. But I will do it anyway. Don’t get me wrong, I am not doing this because I am required to do so, but because I want to sacrifice these things for our dear Lord and practice patience and control.
Yesterday, I was asked “What are you giving up for LENT”?

And I began thinking. What can I sacrifice? I list down things that I am ready to give-up. And I come up with these three:
1. PORK. Pork is what I am eating almost everyday at the office. And maybe It’s time for me naman to eat seafoods, chicken and vegetables. It will be a good practice for me din diba? And I can now be introduced with healthy foods that I barely knew.
2. JUNKFOOD. Did I say healthy foods? Yes! Although, it is hard for me not to eat my comfy thinking buddy. I will give it a shot. I can do this! I know! I will just keep in mind that there is an alternative for it like chocolates, biscuits etc… and I’ll be good. And Lastly,
3. FACEBOOK. Many have tried, Many failed. But I will not! You read it right! I’m giving up Facebook for Lent. But I will be MIA on Facebook for the month of March. Since up until today, I’m still coordinating with our partners for the big event on February 24 through that social networking site. Don’t worry you can still connect with me on instagram. @karenmworld and on twitter @karenmworld07.
They say that sacrificing things is not easy but once you see the result. You can tell yourself “It was worth it.”
