Thats wen my hero dropped by.Iasked him casually if he was fasting and he very roughly said NO!He said “you are supposed to give up things that you really like or enjoy for 25 days and I definitely cant do it coz thats what i love so much.” Thats when I realised that people do this for the ones they love so that they get all the prosperity and happiness.Its my chance of doing something to make people i love really happy..And above all itsonechance that i am getting to adopt his culture, his religion and his traditions. So what if he wasn’t doing it, I could always do it for him!
December 1st dawned and I woke up to a promise I made to myself, “NO NON VEG, NO SWEETS OF ANY KIND FOR 25 DAYS TILL X’MAS.”I wasnt sure myself if I could keep up the promise but what’s the harmin trying!
It certainly was difficult the first few days.Suddenly everyone seemed to be celebrating birthdays and feats and job treats! All that in these 25 days!!What a timing was all i could say.
It was quite frustrating sometimes and thats when I began to pray..My hero had once mentioned that whatever I prayed for during advent would be granted or atleast wil be one step closer to being granted.. I needed a miracle in my life and if all this helped I was definitely willing to give it my best..
Praying really helped..I learnt to control my temptations,I learnt tobe patient and I learnt to control my temper!My hero wil just not agree to this, but i hope he does atleast in his heart..I still pray everyday and though every morning I wake up to new challenges, somehow I am enjoying not having the things that I really love..In the end i guess it all makes sense because I can see the smile on his face and all the love he has for me coz i guess somewhere he knows am trying my best!
Above all I can see the happiness in my gals faces when they know I completed Advent succesfully breaking no promises!!
