Hobbies are a great things for a person to have because it gives them an outlet. If you have a bad day and want to blow off steam and unwind, pick up your hobby. If you have a great day and want to remember it, pick up your hobby. If your bored, can't sleep, anxious, nervous, relaxed or any other possible word you can imagine to describe a person's state of being... then pick up your hobby.
Lots of people say "I can't do that" or "I'm not creative" and that is just bull dinky. Everyone is creative in their own unique way. Sure, I don't knit as fast as mother or do all the really intricate color working that she does but that doesn't stop me from knitting. My aunt might make the most beautiful crochet afghans but that doesn't stop me from going ga-ga over my granny squares. Paula and Gordon might cook the most delicious food on the planet but that doesn't stop me from making a mess in the kitchen. Andrew Prokos is a genius with a camera but that doesn't mean I stop being a shutterbug. All these things do mean something though. They mean that I have some great resources from which to learn and grow in my chosen hobbies.
So I urge everyone - find something, explore everything and embrace a hobby. You'll be so glad you did! Here are a few of my favorite hobbies, once again...
