analyze what it is you like to do. Think about something
productive or creative that you love to do in your spare time.
WHAT IS YOUR "THING?"
You may instantly
know what your ďthingĒ is or it could take you several days to
figure it out. You may not have been able to do what you love
for so long that you have forgotten what it actually is you
love to do.
Unfortunately, this happens to a lot of us.
For example, through all my experiences I found
nothing that excites me more than what I am doing right now!
