What season are you in? Think about the seasons and how they change. Right now we are in the middle of winter. It is gray cold and a bit dreary. But in just a couple of months, we will be in spring. Things will be green and yellow daffodils will start blooming.
As the seasons change so does our life and our hobbies. Before I had kids, I played the piano on a very regular basis. I enjoyed working on afghans and quilts and read lots of books. I also had multiple collections that I enjoyed working on.
When the kids were born, I was busy with babies and my hobbies took a backseat. Now that the kids are teenagers I’m able to focus a little more on some of my hobbies. I have a little more time in the evening to work on afghans and focus on my blogs.
Hobbies must change with the seasons of life. If you are facing a new season then think about how you can adapt and discover or rediscover a hobby.
- Can you read a book now?
- Can you start an art project or plan a road trip?
- Can you learn to crochet or renew your love for quilting?
I am loving the opportunity to work on my 2nd afghan this year. My parents gave me a bag of new yarn for Christmas and I am working hard to turn the yarn into something amazing that I can pass on to my kids.
What season of life are you in? Are you finding that your hobbies have changed and evolved as time moves forward?
