Day One.

I am so tired right now that for the first time in 4 years I could confidently say that if I close my eyes, I will be asleep within seconds (being a mother to a 3 year old makes sure that is not an option anymore)

Day One of Ramadan and the first fast. Honestly, I failed. I kept my fast, I didn’t get hungry or wish that I could drink something. Unfortunately it was the other side of things that let me down today. I made a promise to myself that I would try to stay positive and not get angry because that is the true test here – being a good person.

It took my 3 year old refusing to go to the toilet in a public place and screaming the place down and my husband saying it was all my fault, to make me lose my temper in a huge way.

I couldn’t control it and I couldn’t stop. It was like a volcano. It’s our children that really bring out the worst and best in us.

E forgot all about it within seconds but I feel guilty that I couldn’t be more patient, not even a full day into Ramadan!

Anyway, tomorrow is a new day and I am actively going to find a way to keep calm…. Maybe think of a happy memory or even just breathe 😆

I hope others had a better first day of Ramadan than I did, but there are more days to hopefully make a change.
