Ramadan - Day two

Last night I fell asleep and was woken by my husband calling me. I was tired but still managed to get up. As is the norm with me I unable to eat anything and just about managed a cup of tea. The kids were back at school so I had to get up early but fell asleep again after they left. I was sleeping most of the morning because I was just so tired. I don’t know why I feel so tired these days. I managed to coerce myself out of bed and did my hour of yoga. It made me feel better, I felt energised. So all in all today has been quite a good day. I am trying not to overwhelm myself with chores and am taking it easy. I rest when I feel the need to. I love the feeling I get when my stomach is empty although it worried me earlier as I have suffered fro Anorexia in the past. I feel more focused and alert and maybe even more creative? Who knows? If I suddenly manage to write an amazing bestseller or paint something beautiful then I can put it down to me fasting. Fasting does have a lot of benefits though and I have been reading a lot about them. I came across a beautiful quote by Rumi today and I have to share it.
