I need a spiritual shift. I need a long moment to myself, to gather my thoughts, ground my feet and right my motives.
My brother Sulaiman suggested that maybe we all need a little Ramadan, and he might be right. So in solidarity with all my amazing Muslim friends, and in a stance against our current administration, I’m going to be doing my best to observe Ramadan along with the hundreds of millions participating around the world.
I’m not trying to appropriate anyone’s culture, rather, I’m using this month to not only focus on my spiritual health, but as an opportunity to learn more about an already beautiful religion.
With all that being said, I need some help. Those who do observe, how do you manage your fasting? What do you eat to get you through the day and how hard do you push yourself? I have a 4 road trip planned that I’m sure I’ll need sustenance for; suggestions?
Along with fasting from sunrise to sunset, I’m going to be disconnecting from the things that have a negative effect on my life as much as possible and that includes social media. I’ll be on here to post work related things as they arise but only if necessary.
Looking forward to your suggestions and see you all in a month! 🙏🏼 #ramadanmubarak
