No Coffee Day 2: A Lent Story
Although I stopped going to my Catholic Church over the summer and have joined up with the Independent Fundamental Baptists, Southern Baptists, and Holiness, deep down, I'm still a Catholic.
Why I walked away from the Church is the subject of another post, but the point of this is that I'm still honoring Lent.
Giving up coffee with something, in past years, I said was impossible. Let me make this clear: I love my coffee. I'm generally not a kind person if I don't get my two cups of coffee in the morning. Yesterday, however, I woke up with inclination to fast from coffee.
So far, it's actually been a positive experience. I'm using hot tea to fill in my morning beverage ritual and give me that little bit of caffeine I need. Although I miss my coffee, I'm already seeing positive effects, aside from any of the spiritual ones. My anxiety and edginess has gone way down, and I feel more clearheaded. If I feel this good after 40 days, I might never turn back.#fopp Lent coffee
