Eid Mubarak!!!!!

I give thanks for all the love and support I had welled up inside to distribute to others. I give thanks that my family is in good health and my Uncle Ernest in Dusseldorf, Germany, is doing fine after his surgery. I give thanks that when I run into old friends at celebrations and special events during the summer that they love and care for me as much as they did back in the day when we used to see each other more frequently. I give thanks that my children and grandsun are in good health mentally, intellectually, emotionally, physically, spiritually and like everyone else, we're all still working on the financial and economical. I give thanks that I have my 5 senses and common sense and all my limbs work. I give thanks that I woke up this morning and everything was groovy in my rest. I give thanks that my Daddy, my sister Patricia, my Nana, Anthony Tracey Higgs & Kwesi Hasani Nkosi are watching over me! I thank The Most High for every breath, my mental capacity to analytically think, be strong for me and mine and give me the power and fortitude to get up, put a plan together and get this paper for food, clothing and shelter.

I must say I don't fast from food during Ramadhan because of my bodily composition, but Ramadhan is not about not eating. It's a self-disciplinary tool to enlighten and strengthen your mind through fasting from negative thoughts, negativity in general, pessimism, cynicism, arrogance and stank attitudes. Simultaneously, you should be gaining and encouraging a meditative state of mind and soul, a concept of thinking before speaking and  being mindful of what and how you speak, righting the wrongs of your past and being charitable to any and everyone. Throughout this time, we should be reading our Holy Quran to enhance our calm, right mind and heart-felt spiritual elevation.

This was a very tough Ramadhan for me. So I've decided to start my Ramadhan over with fasting from all the things I NEED to fast from as of Monday 9am... Holy Quran in hand and good intentions overflowing. I was quite charitable during this Ramadhan from feeding the hungry to giving out money but I was pretty angry about a lot of other things. That was my test and as far as I'm concerned, I failed. I will make the test up with flying colors! WATCH! Eid Kariym! Eid Mubarak to all those who passed their test!
