Giving Up During Holy Week

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of the Holy Week, leading up to Easter. During this time, write down some things that you will totally abstain from during Holy Week:
This is a ritual whereby many people give up something for a period of time in anticipation of a celebration of new beginnings.
Here are some things you can choose from, that you might consider giving up:
Intangible:
Winning an argument
Talking negatively about others
Lamenting missed opportunities
Resentment toward someone
Anxiety about the future
Focusing on your perceived weaknesses
Repeating gossip
Anger and resentment
Un-forgiveness
Hatred
Jealousy
Grudge
Greed
Fear
Doubt
etc.
Tangible:
– Favorite foods
– Drinks
– Meat
– Poultry
– Fast Food
– Favorite TV Shows
– Facebook
– Twitter
– Instagram
– Video Games
– Over-excessive Use of Cell Phones
– etc.
Holy Week is not about giving up something that you enjoy in an effort to somehow please God. You’re to also give up something that’s holding you back. The benefit of such a practice is that you give yourself time to create new habits which will enhance your soul’s expression and bring about great blessings, peace and joy.

Happy Holy Week!

Giving Up

Wednesday, February 22, 2012 began what many people call Lent;  a ritual whereby many people give up something for a period of time in anticipation of a celebration of new beginnings.
 
Here are some things you might consider giving up:
 
– Winning an argument
– Talking negatively about others
– Lamenting missed opportunities
– Resentment toward someone
– Anxiety about the future
– Focusing on your perceived weaknesses
– Listening to negative news
– Repeating gossip
 
Lent is not about giving up something that you enjoy in an effort to somehow please God. You’re to give up something that’s holding you back. The benefit of such a practice as Lent is that you give yourself time to create new habits which will enhance your soul’s expression.
