Ramadan 2016

30 Ramadan 2016: Three Key Changes

By changing nothing, nothing changes.– Tony Robbins


Today, on the last day of this blessed month, something weird happened … a lot of wrong things.

I was impatient … I procrastinated … I rushed … I was annoyed … I disregarded others … it was seriously a weird day.

I say weird because of the sheer irony.

After 29 days of trying to be a better person than I was before Ramadan, and after 29 days of recognizing my weaknesses with plans in place for how to deal with them after Ramadan…

Here I was on the last day doing THE THINGS I SAID I WOULD NOT DO AFTER RAMADAN!!!!!!

Then a dear friend reminded me that that in itself was a blessing.

As difficult as it was, I started to see that … I started to see that it was god’s way, within the blessed month, to reiterate the changes I need to make in my life.

… patience, priority, gentleness.

God was, is and will always be merciful.
