Hijabi for almost a month!

As salaamu alaiykum sisters, today I had a nice day alhamdullilah. I went out to the cheesecake factory and shopping with my parents and sister, my first outing as a hijabi with my family, alhamdullilah! It went really well, my family is super supportive and things are going really well. I have been my hijab for almost 1 month and I am soo happy and proud of myself. Like I said before, I had worn hijab previously before but never full time every day all day. I have been wearing it full time and I have not left the house without it. My coworkers,classmates,and family have all been great about it. Yesterday I wore my favorite scarf,which is a rich blend of reds,oranges,green, and gold. Its a very beautiful scarf,masha'allah. I received so many compliments on it and Im feeling much more confident in my hijab these days. I just pray to Allah that it last. I hope I have crossed that hump for the last time. Im wearing hijab and praying regularly and increasing my deen insha'allah. I currently reading great women of islam and its soo amazing, I cant wait to finish and do a post about it. Thats all for now, salaams, but keep me in your duas sisters, so that I may be as strong as you!
