#MicroblogMondays 87: Give Up or Take On
Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.
We are in the middle of Pesach. This is my hardest holiday. I am really bad at giving things up. I can’t stop thinking about the bread and pasta that I’m not allowed to eat for 8 days.
It’s just 8 days. There are plenty of things that I don’t eat 8 days in a row, and it never feels like a hardship. An artichoke, for instance. I haven’t had an artichoke in the last 8 days, and you don’t see me wringing my hands over it. But tell me that I’m not allowed to have an artichoke for 8 days and all I will think about are artichokes 24/7.
Would you rather give up a food item for 8 days or have to eat an undesirable food item 8 days in a row?

Please read the three rules on this post to understand the difference between a permalink to a post and a blog’s main URL.) Only personal blogs can be added to the list. I will remove any posts that are connected to businesses or are sponsored posts.
