Aquil's Personal Life Goal

by Aquil
(Maryland, USA)

My main goal in life, the one thing that keeps me focused, is that I must continually improve myself in all aspects so that I may receive the reward of the next life.

As I know this life is only a testing ground to see whether I'm truly grateful to the One who created me, I'm constantly reminded that I must not become too attached with this existence, that I should instead be like a traveler or wayfarer, one who comes to an unknown town, takes some rest, then continues on his journey home.
