    I suppose this is what drives me.

    The fear of dying without doing something to impact the world. In.other words, I believe that I am living for a particular purpose that has to be carried out. I think way too much about this. :p but it's important to me. Without a purpose, what is life? I just want to do the...

    i think it's a brave step to open your eyes

    every single day and pray for a longer life - not just for yourself to experience more, but to reach out to others whose lives you are yet to touch.
