When I first started writing this blog I don't think I watched very much TV. I really don't even think I had cable, but that was before all of the drama-laden reality shows and Twitter entered my lifespace. Oh, how I love to talk crazy on Twitter about people with problems that are faker than their eyelashes and hair weaves.
Their fake problems take me away from my #realissues for 30 to 60 minutes at a time. But, that TV addiction, if you will, is taking away from time I could be using to enrich my life (prayer, meditation, reading, catching up with friends, going to cultural events, sometimes sleeping). The list goes on an on.
So except for news programming, my TV will not come on during Lent and I'm going to make the commitment to pray daily (which I pretty much do already, but it helps to be accountable) and to take the time out to pray especially when I want to turn on the television.
I think it's going to be a phenomenal 40 days and nights and I hope to come out a better person when it's all over.
What are you giving up for Lent this year? Let's encourage each other in the Lord!
