are you being intentionally vague, or are you just vaguely intentioned?
Lol, perhaps I am being intentionally vague because I am vaguely intentioned, 7.
So in the interest of better clarity, how about this:
Last year was maybe the first year I decided to move away from the do-everything-imaginally-possible style of Ramadan, where I would do tarawih, qiyam, halaqahs, reading quran, ittikaaf, masjid activities, community activities, MSA activities, other stuff and then fit school in there somewhere. It was rewarding, but I also taxed myself more than I should have.
When I moved back home after college my environment changed as well as my outlook, and instead of going off on my own to do 100 things I decided to focus on one over-arching goal, last year - focus on my family (parents and siblings) and have a good Ramadan experience with
them. So I still did some tarawih but not everyday in the masjid. I went out of town with my brother to a Ramadan workshop, and that was a great spiritually bonding experience for us. My mom, my brother and I spent the 27th night at the masjid. My dad and I worked together to coordinate a workshop at the masjid. That was the first workshop we coordinated in our masjid in a really long time, and since then we have had a few more. I considered that a successful Ramadan in that sense even though I didn't rack up a list of accomplishments on a long To Do list. I also got to appreciate what its like to have a nice Ramadan outside of the on-your-own-in-college experience. It's different, but it has its rewards.
Insha Allah, I'm going to try that again this year, except maybe have two big goals. I think maintaining some of the that family oriented experience as well as working on my relationship with Allah, in whatever form that will be (some time in seclusion each day, praying qiyam, halaqa). I still have to work out the details of of a reasonable schedule, so I don't over tax myself like I love to do.
Did that answer your question Just1 ?
