When it comes to the Lenten practice of fasting, I tend to think big.
One year I decided to give up vengeance, a really stupid and short-lasting move since I happened to be going through a divorce at the time. The year after that, I decided to give up gossip, also absurd because I was in music ministry. I could barely make it out of choir practice and to the parking lot without sharing a few "observations" about the (other) sopranos.
Am I a paragon of self-awareness or what?
Since I admire me for this level of higher consciousness, I should probably give up arrogance. God only knows how long that will last.
