I was trying to decide what to give up for Lent this year again.
Once again, I find I've already given up a lot of my old self. I've given up on sleep. I've given up sugar (with the exception of one day during the weekend). I've given up (but not hopelessly given up) on my social life. I've given up my husband to the military. I've given up my youth- I'm on the downward slide toward 30 now (haha!).
But, then I discovered something that REALLY needed to be given up because it was a bad habit. Those silly Fbook games. I play them all the time and they are a distraction to say the least. Many a time I have let my house sit dirty while I've played FarmVille, Cafe World or Frontierville. Many a time have a procrastinated for a half hour at work thinking I've owed myself a break. A break from my computer job to just play a computer game. Sounds ridonkulous.
So, I am going cold turkey and giving up these stupid games with the intent to NEVER play them again. I have much better things to do with my time and I'm mad I got sucked in so easily.
I don't see this as a struggle for me, I see it as a good thing.
