My Life Lately

What I’m currently focused on nowadays:

1. Studying in order to have a clear concept of God and unity in His worship
2. Trust in the Will of God
3. A firm belief in faith and religion
4. Striving to live a life of principles and virtues
5. Believing once again in the inherent kindness, compassion, goodness, and sincerity in people
6. Not compromising my religion and my identity
7. Acceptance, forgiveness, and reconciliation with past troubles
8. Ignoring trivial and worldly things which are of no benefit to the Hereafter

What I’d like to develop more in myself:

1. Volunteerism and assumption of responsibility
2. Sacrifice and patience
3. Charitable acts for those in need
4. Less attachment to worldly matters and material things
5. Compassion
6. Optimism and heartwarming disposition in life
7. Humility
8. Empathy and understanding
9. Discipline and maturity
10. Firm conviction and strong faith
