Another instance of "You can take the girl out of the Church, but not the Church out of the girl."
It's been over 20 years since I've been to a service, but there is still a lot about me that is Catholic. Kind of hard not to be since I went to 12 years of Catholic school, with REAL Irish Catholic nuns. I got a very good education for a slacker, and do not regret it one bit.
One thing I still do is observe Lent. Try to make myself better by giving something up, or limiting something. This year I wanted to do something that would change my patterns for good, not just change and then Whoo Hoo! Easter!
I gave up eating after 7pm. So that eliminates a lot of excess snacking, not planning meals, things like that. It's worked out pretty well. I've eaten three times where I just had to eat dinner and it was late. Oh well.
But I learned a few things about myself in the process, and why I eat at certain times. Learning and being able to change habits feels good.
