After the year I have had I feel the need for Ramadan more than ever before. Full of ups and downs, blessings and bad moments, positivity and negativity, I am excited to say the least that this holy month is among us. This is a month that allows us to feed not our belly but our mind and soul. A month of contemplation, reflection and growth. A chance at a fresh start, a chance at a renewed mindset.
Ramadan has come at a time I need it in my life. To redirect me to what is important, to steer me away from all that is negative for me.
This year its importance and it’s offers for me are larger than ever. I want to take this month to understand more of my religion, learn more, connect more with my faith and my Lord.
Grateful. I feel grateful that I have a chance to turn my life around. To share the blessings of this month with those around me. To really focus on what I want.
I won’t become a new me, more of an improved me.
