Very good post! It's so important to concentrate on all these things... My most difficult fault is not to shout... I have that tendancy when there's just too much to handle in my life or in my mind.
It's much easier to concentrate on the concrete things that are "do" or "don't do" like hijab than these things that are hard to follow 100% (if not impossible) but people need to.
