2012 Ramadan Recap


First off, I want to send out a belated Eid Mubarak message to everyone, hoping you all had a good one. I also hope Ramadan has been good to you, with many prayers and openings.

This year, I've had hits and misses, but Ramadan was interesting nevertheless. Remember how I wanted to read the Qur'an and seek knowledge? Well, I barely did so, I had so many things to do, I could barely set out time to sit & read :( When it comes to fasting with all members, I'm afraid I had a hard time zipping it, not good! As for the tiny successes I've had, I've been able to reflect a lot and limit Twitter use, which I'm happy about. Also, I found myself cooking a whole lot for iftar dinners and/or suhoor. It wasn't even part of my Ramadan plan, but it's still a good thing :)

As said earlier, I had so much to do that I haven't benefited from the first two weeks. When we entered the last ten days, I was disappointed because I could see time slipping through my fingers. Alhamdulillah, God has allowed me to take advantage from the end of the month. 

Now that Ramadan is over, I'm in that awkward out-of-Ramadan, in-between phase. I'm slowly going back to my regular habits, but I kinda miss it. Strangely enough, people around me feel the same - even West African TVs keep broadcasting Ramadan programs by popular request :)

So my 2012 Ramadan didn't go exactly the way I wanted, but I still learned from it.
