    Ok here's the thing. I've been thinking lately, and I'm kind of glum because there is nothing in my life which I am really passionate about. Many people have something which they are obsessed with\consumes them which gives them meaning and direction in their life. For example, people skilled at art or music are often very passionate about their craft and it is this passion which gives them an identity as an artist or musician but I'm having trouble finding something which can do this for me. I guess I would describe myself as a creative type, and I have interests but I am at a loss to really apply them to anything helpful to myself.

    I realize this might not make much sense, as it is now quarter after 2 in the morning and I have insomnia so I apologize if my thinking is not entirely clear

    I guess what bothers me most is the feeling of emptiness this causes...

    Emptiness is very consuming.
    One has to get out there, look around, explore, try things, discard things, and journey until one finds just what it is that one wants to be "passionate" about.
    Don't let what you've found to be passionate about consume you either.
    Balance.
    It's all about balance.

    Do something in which you can love and help people. By doing so you will be forfilled and there are a LOT of people out there who could really use and appreciate your help.
