The Ramadan Diary 2023: Day 6

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

Okay, the confusing thing about counting days following the Islamic calendar on the Gregorian calendar is that a new day starts with dusk. So while the Gregorian calendar marks today as 6 Ramadan, it is technically 7 Ramadan as of sunset just now.

So just like that we have are entering the end of the first week of Ramadan. I would rate my week as a 0.5 out of 10. I feel like I have been taking a lot of Ls and have been realising that while the concept of gratefulness is simple, it is not at all easy. I will take whatever Ws I can get and just be thankful for them.

However, I thirst for more successes. Finding it extremely challenging to be normal with very low energy level and poor digestion. Huhu.

I pretty much slept the whole day today. Totally defeats the sense and purpose of Ramadan.

And now here I am wide awake at this hour when I am supposed to be sleeping. I have an early shift tomorrow.

I still feel pretty lost at work. I think it is because I am so used to following a routine at me old workplaces. Over here, at my new workplace, I have not been really fed a routine. I am still trying to figure a lot of things out. Like trying to carve time for my own training and development. Bruh, so much paperwork, so little time.

Anyway, the restlessness in my heart due to elements of life is nowhere near to being extinguished. Hais. Just a little bit more. Each time, it is just a little bit more.

And Allah is Al-Mu’min, The Giver of Tranquility and Source of Faith. – MM
