When it’s the 29th

Hari ini, hari ke 29 bulan Ramadan. Hakikatnya waktu memang ia terus berjalan, dan Ramadan pun ia perlakukan dengan sama: 1 hari berlangsung selama 24 jam, tidak kurang tidak lebih. Meski Ramadan adalah bulan spesial sekalipun. So, we expected this. We expected Ramadan too, will come to an end. But no matter how we expected Ramadan to end, we still yearn for it to stay.

Some people say, Ramadan is a reset. Or that when Ramadan comes we have to behave. That Ramadan worth our whole attention. And all of that, sounds like: you would not want to ruin ramadan. for sure.

Sehingga ketika hari ini adalah hari ke-29 Ramadan, meski di ujung, we don’t want to lose. We would want to finish strong, like some hashtag said. Couple years ago, a platform used: towards guilt-free Ramadan and personally, it hit the spot! Because it’s just natural for us to astray, to feel guilty that we haven’t done enough in Ramadan.

Jadi gimana, biar kali ini bisa guilt-free Ramadan?

If you ask me, yang kepikiran ya follow up dengan planning. Karena setidaknya dengan planning kita bisa membayangkan next purpose, and map it out. It’s actually what I would love to do. I have things in mind, things that I want to continue from Ramadan, things that I would love to start in Syawal (not yet a marriage though) and things I’d like to prove to myself.

I believe Ramadan is a month of training. And that the months to come are the actualization of what we’ve overcome in Ramadan. So when it’s the 29th, bukan cuma siap-siap berpisah dengan Ramadan tapi juga berarti ini saatnya untuk merencanakan steps for months ahead, in terms of our spiritual aspect of life. Of continuing the connection with Allah & the Qur’an that we’ve build in Ramadan.

Let’s write it down, first, and gradually work our way up!
