The time to relax is when you don't have time for it.

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.

For some reason, when I insist on showing my cat a picture in a book, she'll want to look everywhere but the book. If I lower the picture to her line of vision, she'll lower her vision to below the book. And if I lower it more, she'll insist on lowering her eyes more.

It's like a game. That I lose. Every. Single. Time.
