“Three hobbies? How in the world am I supposed to come up with three when I can’t even come up with one?”
Admit it. You said it too.
Well, if I take a look at the picture below, I guess I can create a wish list.
My knee jerk reaction is to say the first and third are hard, and the middle one is easy, but after about 3 seconds of thinking, I know better.
At 44 years old, finding a hobby to keep me in shape scares me to death. Sure, I can dream of being a triathlete. Swim, Bike, Run! And then I think about it. I don’t even want to start. The dream of being in shape is AWESOME! The reality…not so much.
If I began to exercise there would be numerous benefits. I know the facts and statistics. In fact, the dream of how great I’d look is frequently in my head.
Now what about the first and the third?
I know there are people “out there” who love their work so much it seems like a hobby. Sounds like fun. Is it you? At one time is was me. I hope to be that person again, soon.
As for the third, how many people do you know with a truly CREATIVE hobby? Think for a minute. Do you have a couple of people in mind? What is their creative hobby?
I know at least one person in the Gardening/Landscaping category combining all three “hobbies” very successfully. (I’d go work for him in an instant if my family would move to a certain North Eastern state.)
My question for you today: Do you have a hobby fitting one or more of these categories?
I don’t…yet. But I’m working toward it.
