Image via WikipediaWhy is it so difficult to stop? Technology makes the problem much worse, of course. I don't even have to switch my computer on to see email - it's on my iPod. And so much paper coming in every day. Would the world be any worse off if I just chucked it in the bin without even reading it? Anything really important would send a reminder!
Seriously, the discipline of stopping is an act of will which all of us could benefit from in Lent. I'm working late tonight, so that I can stop tomorrow. I promise I will!
