I once read a quote, I believe in Oprah’s magazine (don’t you judge me!) that went something like “when you don’t know what to do next, just do any old thing”. I have been struggling for the past few years to come up with a hobby for me to pursue. The problem is that I have not actually tried anything, I have just sort of theoretically played around with ideas in my mind without actually putting anything into action. Although I suppose this blog is now a hobby, but for some reason I don’t really count it as one.
I guess when I think “hobby” I think of collecting, assembling, designing something tangible that you can hold in your hands. Train sets? Model air planes? Cross-stitching? Water colors? I really just don’t know what to go with. So although I agree that I should just choose something and see if it sticks, I am at a loss of where to begin. Maybe next time I find myself spending a significant amount of time thinking about maybe, eventually, perhaps trying something I should just go for it and give it a shot. …magic tricks? …stamp collecting? …scrap-booking?
