As the month of fasting for Muslims come to an end, we celebrate Eid. People dress up, visit their family and relatives, and kids collect envelopes of money from the adults.
I was annoyed that my previous Eids were ruined or non-existent because of school or other things in life. This Eid, I decided I was going to enjoy it regardless of anything that happens. And so I started by Eid shopping, because nothing translates to therapy like retail therapy ( or so I've been told).
And I forced myself to forget about school and delight in my finds.
I went to prayer at my local mosque content in being able to dress nicely and determined to focus on God. So far it has been a good Eid. A simple Eid. An Eid that doesn't translate to
receiving gifts like I did years before, or a perfect Eid, or an Eid without anything missing, but it's alhamdulillah an Eid.
It's like a game. That I lose. Every. Single. Time.
HAPPY EID EVERYONE !!!!!!!
