I have a confession to make:
I don't have a dream.
There is nothing in this world that I am burning for, no passion, no big goal.
'Work hard for your dreams', they say but what am I supposed to work hard for when I don't have any dreams ?
On the one hand I think: hey it's okay not know, you're still young and you have time to figure it out, no pressure !
But then again I can't help but be reminded of all the successful people at my age.

I want to be able to say: I know why I was born, I have a purpose on this earth, this is my passion and what I live for.
It is my dream to have a dream, how ironic.

It is really frustrating when you feel like you have a bigger and meaningful purpose but you don't know what it is yet or how you can find out what it is.
I feel like what I'm currently doing is existing (which I am grateful for obviously) but I want to get to the point where I feel like living. Where I wake up with a purpose that leads me through life. Right now I just feel empty, not really the depressed kind of emptiness but the emptiness where you're just standing there with nothing while other people have a flame in themselves that makes them strive hard to keep that flame burning. It is their purpose to maintain their flame because it is all they got and love.

I want to find that flame, I really do but the question is: how ?
