Last week I had a conversation with a friend about how parenting blogs make her feel. Her response was they make her feel inadequate. Surely, she was in the minority. If that’s how parenting blogs make people feel, why would they follow them? I conducted a poll on my Instagram stories.

I am Not a Better Muslim in Ramadan
During Ramadan, we fast to detox our body so that we can feel energized. We focus on our prayers and separate ourselves from worldly desires to feel closer to Allah. We strive to show patience in our mannerism so that we can practice sabr in our life.
But, if I’m being honest, I struggle with all of those things in Ramadan. There is an expectation that during Ramadan we feel a special connection to Allah. That we spend our time in prayer and dhikr. But I feel distant from Allah, and I spend most of my time bouncing between checking the current time and iftaar time.
