Do you want to find that genuine love to give your life meaning? Start by listening to your inner child, most likely you had a dream growing up. When you were young with no responsibilities more freedom to think and get creative was allowed. Take a few hours off throughout your days and go back to those times and remember some of those ideas. Start by writing down some of the ideas you think off, if you pay attention they can sometimes show a recurring theme.

How about stepping out and volunteering with others, being around new faces and activities can sometimes inspire new ideas for your career choices. You can even develop a new passion in life that you may have never thought about; it can be hard along the way but never stop trying and looking. Once you have an idea that peaks your interest go forward and take some action with it, take a course, maybe find a mentor, even freestyle and create your path.
