My 2015 Resolutions.

Assalamu’alaikum and hi y’all. :)
As promised, I am here to share about my 2015 resolutions !

The last time I listed down my resolutions was during the end of 2012 and they were obviously for 2013. Sooo let’s see how many of them I can tick off.

  1. Not to miss my daily prayers and try to pray on time whenever I can. This is a constant struggle for me, isk isk. – STILL STRUGGLING.
  2. Try to cover my aurah properly – make sure my chest, neck, butt and arms are fully covered, buy and wear more long skirts/dresses/loose pants instead of jeans or form-fitting pants. Constant struggle too, isk isk. – STILL STRUGGLING. 
  3. Try to read at least one page of the Qur’an a day. -STILL STRUGGLING
  4. Strive to be a better wife, Mummy, daughter, sister, friend and worker. InshaAllah. – STILL STRUGGLING
  5. Work out a minimum of three times a week. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays perhaps ? – CHECK ! I love you Zumba ! 
  6. Cut down on fast foods, junk food and carbonated beverages. I can already see Mr. Sunshine rolling his eyes. Hehe. I HAVEN’T HAD A SODA SINCE APRIL 2013, WOOT WOOT ! Can’t say the same for junk food & fast food though. Tsk.
  7. Keep on sharing the goodness of Shaklee with everyone ! – CHECK !

OhEmGee.
I am basically still struggling to get through the first half of my 2013 resolutions ! *dies*

Resolution No. 1:
To be honest, last year sometime around October or November, I went through more than 2 weeks of being low, sad, down to the point I literally had to force myself to get up and pray.
I’m not sure if any of you have ever experienced anything like that, but if you have, I am here to tell you that you will get through it.
I forced myself to listen to a lot of islamic lectures on YouTube (particularly by Yasmin Mogahed and Nouman Ali Khan) which I think was a huge help, I also listened to lectures on the tafseer of Al-Qur’an and most importantly I never stopped praying for Allah to spare me from the  ‘detachment phase’ I was going through.

A friend of mine shared this schedule which I thought is really good for anyone who needs help in keeping their ibadah in check. Everyone needs a push every now and then, right ? :)

Jadual Ibadah Harian
Anyone who needs this schedule, do contact me, I will happily email it to you.

I am hoping to be able to strike this resolution off this year ! Ameen Ya Rabb !

Resolution No. 2:
I have always been a jeans and blouse kinda person so this is really a challenge for me especially when I think that wearing skirts make my hips look huge.
They’re already huge to begin with, so I don’t want to accentuate them. And that’s where I am so superficially wrong !
I need to constantly remind myself that I do not have to dress to impress the people around me, I only have to dress to please Allah S.W.T plus HE gave me those hips anyway. Hehe.
I have just recently started wearing socks and hand socks to cover my feet & wrists (mencabarnya nak istiqamah bab ni !) I try to make sure I only wear wide shawls and/or tudungs which are big enough to cover my chest. In fact, I have been so used to it that wearing slightly short tudungs feel so uncomfortable.

More loose dresses please, Melissa !

Please pray that I will remain steadfast in my struggle to cover up ! Isk isk.

Resolution No. 3:
I really have no excuse for this. *slaps self*
Read more Qur’an, Melissa !

Resolution No. 4:
I believe this will always be a working progress because nobody’s perfect. But to be specific, I need to:
1. Spend less time on my phone and more time on Khayla & Mr. Sunshine.
2. Be more organized with proper time management to help me juggle between my family, job and part time job.

I hope all of you are doing OK with your resolutions. All the best ! :)

Here’s to an incredible 2015, InshaAllah. :)
