Today I had a meeting at work for the entire division. It was to introduce the new division head. The bad part about it was that there were refreshments served. Fruit, pastries, coffee, and juice. It was hard not to go get something, especially when my co workers were asking me why I didnt. But, I just sat there without getting anything. I didnt really explain myself either, so I havent had the courage to tell people that I'm a muslim.
I have found that fasting has gotten easier the last few weeks. The problem now has been the lack of sleep from getting up early for Suhoor. I was so tired this afternoon, I put my head down on my desk and I was almost out completely. I came home after work, went to get some medicine for my cat, came back home and crashed for a couple hours until sun down.
I have also found that when I break fast, I'm not in a big rush to eat a ton of food either. I'm thirsty and I drink maybe 3 glasses of water. But, tonight for example, I only had a salad with some chicken, some soup, and a chicken wrap. I was tempted to go buy ice cream but decided against it. I just dont feel the need to stuff myself even though I havent eaten all day. Maybe that's part of the point of fasting. To see that we don't actually need the things we think we need.
Peace and blessings to all
