Ramadan resolutions

DSCF0489
Another Ramadan has gone and I have been thinking of a couple of resolutions .
Alhamdulillah, Ramadan helped me realize how exhausting this year had been for me and how I urgently need to slow down.

Resolution nr 1: Less courses

Since April, I am working full-time which is a good thing but I also enrolled to way too many courses and classes considering that I also have 2 young children and a husband (or a third child, some might say)
This is why this trimester, I have decided to enrol only to relaxing and fun classes (ie Sewing and Upholstery)
Cooooooooooooooooooooooooooool!!!

Resolution nr 2: Looking after myself

I lost weight. I also look like I haven’t been sleeping well for months. ( which is somehow the truth!)
The alarm rang when one day my line manager told me to relax and to look after myself. Later on, my supervisor sent me home when it wasn’t time for me to go
I must have looked pretty ugly on that day.

This is all my fault. I gave up my Yoga-at-home sessions when I vowed to practice it as much as possible
So That’s it ! I am going to follow that beauty queen healthy lifestyle: loads of sleep and loads of water to drink.
I am also planning to treat myself to that Muslim Beauty Salon in Streatham “to sort out my face”.
And to end with, I’ll try to spend a little bit more of my budget on Beauty goodies “to keep fit”!

Resolution 3: Chilling at home and spending more time with the girls

I need to find more time to play with them. They are all over the moon when I am being the crazy mummy.


Resolution 4: Spending more time in my ibadat

Definitely thinking of registering to the Islamic Online University set up by Bilal Philips. There are quite a lot of courses available for free with audio and video features. That will enable me to learn while cooking or cleaning. Hurray!

Ok then, let’s start now. Steady, ready, go!

Ramadan Kareem

It is Ramadan and I am thanking Allah for giving me another opportunity to fast during this Holy month .
This is a great time for me because there is hope that I might be blessed and that my repentance might be accepted inshAllah.
This is also a great time because I am feeling so much freedom right now. I am not blindly rushing around as I am trying my best to concentrate on worship.

Alhamdulillah, it is a time of reflection for me too.
Am I good mother, a good wife, a good daughter, a good friend?
How am I living my life? Am I striving towards the Dunya or the Akhira?
Am I happy? If I am not happy, is it because I am disobeying Allah wa ta Ala?
What changes should I make in my life?

As you can see, I have a lot to think about so I won’t be blogging until the end of Ramadan but I hope to see you soon inshAllah
