Whats your hobby?

Someone was asking me that day what my hobby was and I couldn't answer her. How can I not know what my hobby is. To see if everyone was like me, I asked a few friends what their hobbies are and surprisingly, they all had an answer to give.

Great! I'm the only odd one here? Is it weird that I dont have a hobby?

I mean, I love doing a lot of things but I wouldn't call it a hobby. Like, I love to eat but eating is NOT my hobby. Like I dont eat all the time (although sometimes I just can't stop eating - like right now!)

I love sleeping. But I DONT sleep all the time. In fact, I dont even get enough sleep lately because I'm always up doing something.

So what is my hobby?

I need to google the definition of the word "hobby" because I dont even know what that is anymore. According to wikipedia…

"A hobby is a regular activity that is done for enjoyment, typically during one's leisure time. Hobbies can include collecting themed items and objects, engaging in creative and artistic pursuits, playing sports, or pursuing other amusements."

OK so I dont have a hobby. Perhaps it is time for me to get one.

I was looking at the list of hobbies and wow, there's a lot that I can try out. I dont even know where to begin.

When I was a kid, probably about 8 or 9 years old, I was pretty good at art. I remember how I enjoyed painting and colouring. I dont remember when or why I stopped doing that. Perhaps I should start exploring that artistic side of me. Who knows, I might enjoy it. I've been thinking of learning the art of batik because I really love batik but I'm not sure where to start. That's another area I could probably explore too.

Perhaps this year is meant for me to find myself again. The real me. I feel like it is. I've lost touch of the real person inside me. I dont even know what she likes. I go through day to day life and I love every bit of it but sometimes I question myself … do I really LOVE doing this, or am I doing it because my family, my kids or my husband love it? You know what I mean…?

OK time to discover the real me. First plan is to get back to my artistic side and explore my love for art again….if I can still find it…

It is never to late to learn something new...

    1. Thank you for sharing. I feel so much better knowing I'm not the only one :)
      Good thing is we can now start exploring. Could be something we enjoyed doing in the past or something totally new. All the best to us. May we find a hobby that suits us.
