    Needing to Identify My Passion

    Since the last time I wrote my story on here I believe I have discovered what I am lacking.  I'm lacking something that grabs me by the throat and screams--THIS IS YOUR PASSION!!  WHAT YOU WERE MEANT TO DO!!  Something that lights a fire in my belly that fills me...
