5 Things You Can Do After a Breakup

I actually forgot how it feels. I'm a happily married woman now, but of course, I can still empathize and always care about people around me especially when my friends just got out of a relationship. 'Move on" after breaking up is not a simple thing. It will take time to heal a broken heart. When I found my close friend who just got out of a breakup, I advise them to do these things:

Stay away from social media
Social media is not the right place to vent frustration or throw away your feelings. That's why if someone got out of a relationship, just take a breath for a while and avoid social media. You might convey your pain feeling to public, do not get full of unrest statuses which can let others know that you are being hit by confusion of the broken heart.

Enjoy yourself with a cup of your favorite beverage
You can do this just with your own self anywhere you want, it could be at home, café, or other places. Sitting by yourself and drinking a cup of your favorite coffee or tea. Everyone who just got out of a breakup needs time to be alone. A precious moment for recalling the failure of love and taking lessons from it.

Long Distance Friendship

This year, we finally met again after so many years we separated between distance and time. Desi lives in Holland and I live in Indonesia. During last Ramadan she visited Bandung and followed the holy month of fasting and Eid Ul Fitr with her family here. Our last meeting was in 2014, I was really happy and excited to see her again. We're pretty close to each other. Many things that we share, about life, happiness, sadness, and how to be grateful for what we own. 

21st of July, we set our meeting arrangement, I picked her from her place. We went to Reading Lights (RL), it's a second-hand book shop and coffee corner, it's really cozy place to chit-chat while enjoying a cup of tea or coffee. Our condition wasn't good enough, so we ordered the same beverage, hot ginger tea (without sugar). I got sore throat and flu and Desi was in her recovery from cough and flu as well. We had a warm talk, shared everything we wanted to share. She's really a good friend, like my own sister, and very kind lady. I'm lucky to have her in my life.

Blogging for Passion

My main profession is as a full time mother and housewife; taking care of my son, husband, and our house. I also teach English to the elementary children, but no longer in the institution. The focus of my career is working from home, then I opened a small English classes for private lessons at home. Writing is part of my additional job as a content writer and blogger as well. 

Alhamdulillah, I never feel bored with my routine activities. Maybe if my mood is not okay, I would read books or play some musical instruments. Besides taking care of the household and teaching, I usually do blogging activities in my spare time, all the blogging stuff is run as fun as possible.

Teaching Our Children about Ramadan

Alhamdulillah, Allah still gives us the opportunity to meet the holy month of Ramadan 1437 H. When a Muslim reaches mature age, he/she should have fast and other ibadah in Ramadan. As parents, we need to train our kids to fast and give them the meaning of Ramadan which the rewards and benefits are very plentiful. I started to introduce my son about Ramadan when he was about 4 years old.

Teaching our children about Ramadan in the early age is important. This year, it's the first time for my son doing fast. I've given him the meaning of the special month of Ramadan, even tough he's just following what I do, but I hope in the next few years he would do it for the sake and pleasure of Allah. This time I promised to give little thing as rewards if he could finish his fast from dawn to sunset, but I always explain that Allah will give him more than that.

Below are tips to teach our children about Ramadan;
