I have never participated in Lent. It would probably be a good experience for me, but I'm afraid that I would somehow fail at it. If I were to give up the things that I TRULY do need to deny myself of, I would neverrrr make it for the whole 40 days (I know, I have a lot of faith in my abilities). So, knowing that, I would probably err on the safe side and just end up giving up something like candy or coffee... things that I don't crave that often in the first place and could easily go without. But I don't think that's the way that Lent is supposed to work.

The things that I should give up?
Yes, I did add cleaning to the list. I realize that cleaning is considered a "good" thing, so you're probably not really supposed to give something like that up. But I seriously do obsess over cleaning. I spend wayyy too much of my time at home on household chores that really don't need to be done Goodness knows that I would be a complete disaster and think that my life was over if I stopped cleaning for 40 whole days.

Good luck to those of you who are giving up something!
