Lent Choice

It's the second day of Lent and I am still unsure whether I am going to give anything up this time.

Last year was the first time since I was a child that I decided to 'do the Lent thing' and gave up eating meat in the run-up to Easter.

I didn't do it for religious reasons, though. I just wanted to see if I could do it.

And I did.

I started thinking it was a bad idea almost as soon as I started as there were a number of occasions where I was beginning to think about making my dinner and would look inside the fridge or freezer - see something I wanted - and then remember that I was supposed to be avoiding it.

The better option for me to take is to ride it this year.

What I mean is I'll decide on Easter Sunday what I haven't done and say 'that was what I had given up.'

It's an easy out.

But not as easier as saying 'I'm going to give up giving things up for Lent'.
