Today was actually tolerable.
Maybe even bordering on awesome.
Thank You God.
Instead of the traditional agenda, we went to the bigger masjid and hung out for a little bit finding family, eating halal pepperoni pizza (relax! It was only beef lol) and I got a new maxi dress! (This is such a nice quality fabric too :DDD By now I have like 4 maxis?)
Then we, my immediate family only, went to an Indian-Pakistani Cuisine restaurant and ironically, although most of the customers were muslim they still stared at my hijab and abaya.
Maybe because I actually kept my on after the prayer instead of quickly disposing of it.
Anywho, we came home afterward and I spent the rest of the time contemplating how fun Ramadan was.
I loved having something to look forward to (iftar) and the fact that we were all more or less closer during this blessed month!
My plan was to avoid music for the entire month (it worked out alhamdulillah) and now it's not so much of an ingrained habit to pick up my iPod and just drift off.
I also tried to incorporate sunnah prayers and insha'Allah I'm still going to work on these after Ramadan is over.
I can't wait until next year insha'Allah!
I hope you guys also had a fantastic Eid!
