For 40 Days and 40 Nights, I have been challenged not only by my moral convictions...but from the Mix Morning Show to do one thing I know will be HARD. I can not believe I'm going to do this...but I know after it's over it will be worth it. 

I'm giving up

During the celebration of Lent, Christian's and religious people around the world give up or change something that is a struggle for them for the 40 days and 40 nights. Ash Wednesday which is the start of the Lent season I'm doing something that because of my job is going to be more than a difficult time for me. I am constantly connected to everything through my phone. I check my emails..respond to the Facebook messages, answer text messages and try and help plan out the show for the next morning..all through my phone. I am constantly connected, and while this is a good thing to be in tuned with what's going on, sometimes it can be a bit too much. Lately, I've noticed myself not even knowing that I am doing it..but scrolling through Twitter or Instagram just because a commercial is on TV. Or while people are talking to me it's getting easier and easier to just scroll. So for the next 40 Days, I am committed to putting away the phone and dialing into my life and what's in front of me. Is this going to be hard? OMG, it's going to be brutal. I'm nervous honestly, I am. I know that I can do it, but man it is not going to be easy. We talked about it on the show the morning, take a listen below. What is one thing that even if you don't celebrate Lent you are willing to give up for a short time? Nicole is giving up soda's, Mike said he will stop bowling..(let's be real he doesn't do that anyways..SMH) We'd love to hear from you. Comment below and share with us what you are doing away with. Best of Luck. We can do this. -JD
