Ramadan Mubarak 2012

I’m still trying to grasp the fact that Ramadan is here!

For some reason I kept thinking it was next week, but after seeing all the “Ramadan Kareem” messages on Facebook, realized it’s here right now!

Because I don’t like to turn this into a religious blog and start telling people what they should/shouldn’t be doing, I’ll just write about my own personal ideas of what I plan to do this Ramadan.

I’m hoping to really dedicate more time and effort to increasing my knowledge this Ramadan. It’s a time to remind oneself to reflect on your life and how to increase your own relationship with God. Lately I’ve been on a quest to really feel God’s presence in my life and not take it as something for granted.

I’ve been reading several different books over the last few weeks that have helped me strengthen my own personal beliefs and I look forward to devouring more.

I feel like I’m in this period of self-discovery where I’m just so hungry to learn more about my faith and what it is that I can do to keep feeling this happy and content. It’s amazing and maybe I’ll share with you my journey of how I got here someday. :)

How are you going to do your Ramadan? Are you on the no Facebook for 30 days tradition? Or do you just stay the same and simply increase other things like praying? Please share what Ramadan means to you! :)
