Give It Up

Today is ash Wednesday, and the beginning of Lent. For Catholics, that means a time to give up or give more. I know some families who do more (more charity work, more praying, more kindness, etc.) during this period and other families who give something up during this period. For some it may be sweets, eating out, watching tv, and so on. It is a way to fast and abstain.

I am giving up mindless computer usage. I've become one of those people who will hop on here and hop on there. I'll check Facebook during lunch, pop in on a blog or two while drinking my morning coffee, check my e-mail throughout the day. It is bits and pieces throughout the day but I think know it adds up to more time then it should. During the Lenten season I am giving myself one hour a day on the computer...no more then that. It will make me more aware of how I spend my time online and also make me more choosy with what I do with that time.

I doubt that it will affect my blog, as that is something that I will choose to do within those 60 minutes a day. I think it will affect my house, my other interests, and my mind - for the better!
