Here we are nearly a week into Ramadan already. It is the most anticipated time for me. Part of what I deal with mentally is the need for scheduled restarts. I’m not a “diet starts today” kind of person. So Ramadan is the perfect time to “fix” those despised qualities and center myself. I am always disappointed I don’t do more, but I am trying to focus on the changes I am making. I want to finish memorizing Surah at-Takwir, inshaAllah, and I want to be the kind person I was before work beat me down.
I love Ramadan. I love the calmness fasting brings down upon me. My soul is quieted.
May our prayers, deeds and fasting be accepted. Ameen.
*for those that may read my blog and not know about Ramadan, it is a month of fasting, charitable acts, reflection and worship. Fasting is from sunrise to sundown. If anyone has questions I am more than happy to respond.
