If you want to know what you really want in life, think about everything you have and everything you want. Look at everything you already have with a sense of kindness and show love and gratitude for the happiness you got - and still have - by having those things in your life.
Then, look at everything you want.
Think what you need to do in order to get those things - do you need to put in more effort in some part of your life? Do you need to do something differently from what you have been doing now?
What about the things you have, are any of those things getting in the way of pursuing the things you want, or will those people and things work as catalysts?
How about the fact that we have only one brain, two hands, 24 hours in a day, and the fact that time once gone will never come back? Will the things we want and we have help us move closer to fulfilling our dreams and make us happy and content?
How strong are we to stand up after we fall down, how resilient we are, and how strong is our will to be able to return to the light after going towards the dark side of the tunnel of life?
Are we capable of turning ourselves into a martyr for the sake of someone or something else? Does our strength lie in becoming a martyr or by not becoming one? Are we strong enough to give up on our individuality and blend in with the society around us, or are we endowed with the courage and persistence to swim against the tide?
By doing the things we do every day, and by not doing anything different in our day-to-day lives, are we chasing our own dreams, or the dreams of someone else?
