Is anyone going to use Lent (40 days from tomorrow till Easter) to give something up?
I’m going on a spiritual fast this Lent. It’s called Vanity Fast.
Means I have to quit being self-absorbed.
I CAN’T look in the mirror more than absolutely necessary (once or twice a day), that includes reflection in shop windows, cars, etc.
I CAN’T take photos of myself, post photos on Flickr, not even look at old photos of myself.
I CAN’T talk about myself, draw attention to myself, praise myself.
I CAN’T do vanity searches on Forumosa to see what you fine people have said about me, either.
INSTEAD, I have to use that energy and focus to see others better and give attention to them.
My friends laughed at me and think I won’t be able to do it. Especially the “center of attention part”.
Well, I think I will! :raspberry:
