My Lenten Sacrifice... I have to vent!

No softdrinks for Lent...

I haven't been talking about this but I need to vent out. You see my sacrifice for lent is giving up carbonated drinks...  I still have a month to go and it's getting harder and harder... 

The other day, there wasn't any iced tea in KFC and I happened to order a Zinger meal... I had already bought it and no iced tea!!! Boo!!! Seriously, water won't cut it. Now that's a sacrifice!!!

But I guess Lent is a time for reflection and sacrifice. I feel it's a way of cleansing one's soul... Only a number of Pinoys follow the Friday Abstinence... Kanya-kanya talaga I guess. But for me, I felt that I had to give up something. Giving up soda in the presence of chips and Chinese food is difficult! Believe me...

Anyway, thanks for letting me vent out. Now I feel better :)

This has been, by far, the cutest post :)

My sister gave up softdrinks, too. Plus chips and chocolate. She's successful thus far.

I gave up the Internet, but I'm obviously not successful. How insensible naman kasi.

Good luck with the rest of the Lenten season.

I smiled to this post: the same intricacy in avoiding carbonated drinks. I've had hyper acidity since 1998 and had the stubbornness to sneak sometimes of drinking soda behind my parents' back. It's all in the mind that I can't do it. Let us make the sacrifice, it is, for one thing, for our own soul. ^^

I believe we all do sacrifices in any means, Jiggy. I never gave up Twitter & Facebook but we've all prayed the rosary everyday and we gave up eating any kind of meat but only during Fridays. Elders here never ate meat during the Lenten season. But kids do. And I also can't have sodas because I was diagnosed of Hyperacidity last month and forthcoming ulcer if I don't stop drinking 'em. In another way, I gave up shopping and eating at 7Eleven where I am spending too much money which my parents worked hard for just to earn.
