I used to love taking photographs and drawing with pencil or charcoal but over the years I’ve sort of let being a mom take over any time I had before for a hobby. It sort of just fell by the wayside.
And that was okay. I was so engulfed in my children that I guess I didn’t feel I needed a hobby anymore. This year now that both my kis are in school full time I guess I felt a little empty and just didn’t think I had anything I truly enjoyed other than being mom. Then a friend of mine asked me what I liked to do, what my hobbies were and I told her I didn’t have one.
She said there had to be something and after a long time of thinking I remembered how much I enjoyed taking photographs. So, that’s what has become my hobby again. I’d forgotten what it felt like to do something I enjoyed just for me without feeling guilty.
So tell me, what is your hobby? What do you enjoy doing for you!
