Finding Time for a Hobby

Finding Time for a Hobby

They say that when you are passionate about doing something, you will find the time to do it.  I think “they” might not have had a job, kids or other demands that seem to suck the minutes out of a day like a giant sucking Cheerios through a straw.  Otherwise, they must have been a Martha Stewart clone, because in real life, finding time for the things we love is almost impossible.

If you work away from home, a hobby is probably one of the last things on your mind when you come home from a long day, especially if you also have children or other family who want to spend time with you.  It is easy to say that making time is all about priorities, but the fact is, there are only so many free hours in the day and we can’t do it all.

Finding time for a hobby is important though, and even more so when you have all those other demands on your time.  We need time for ourselves; to pursue something that makes us happy.  If you don’t make time for enjoying life, you are setting yourself up for a very disappointing life.

So, busy hobbyists, I challenge you to make a resolution to find time for doing what you love.  Even if you only manage to carve out an hour chunk from your packed weekend, you will still be able to enjoy your hobby and unwind in the process.

So, what do you say?  Can you make even a little time for doing something you truly enjoy?
