Hobbies and Interests – The Best Hobby For You

Carmen D. Lade

Are you looking for a way to add zest to your lifestyle?

There are many hobbies and interests surrounding us every day. There are craft hobbies, extreme hobbies, fun hobbies, world hobbies, great hobbies, action hobbies. Hobbies include the familiar, the unusual or weird, unique and popular. It is like a hobby lobby in the middle of the world.

Are you aware of the new hobbies?

New hobbies involving technical, automotive, and space age assisted with new miniature hobby tools to help hobby people design their handmade creations or to assemble hobby kits.

Are there too many lists of hobbies to choose from? Make a personal list of who you are. What do you like to do? What do you not like to do? What do you love to do? And what you will not do.

Like and love are two words that mean different things. For me, when I like something I accept or commit to all that comes with it. Good or bad I can live with it. On the other hand when I love something, I have discovered that once the love is gone so is the project.

The most difficult list to put together will be… who am I? It is difficult because many times we actually do not know who we are for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you are preoccupied with others and discover a lost of identity. Perhaps you have never taken an interest in yourself to find out who you are.

Hobbies help to discover or rediscover ourselves because you have to use your knowledge, skills, and talents to give life to a hobby. Many times your hobbies and interests go beyond your personal creative world. Make a list of hobbies and interests.

Allow me to tell a short story to help emphasize this point. I have a friend who makes miniature plants. I look at them and they are cute, but this type of hobby does not interest me. However, because she is my friend, I let her tell me about how she makes her mini plants.

Her face lights up with excitement as she demonstrates how she gives life to her plants. Her world is exciting. But her world also has a reality because it makes other adults and children happy with her plants as they place these trees and foliage into doll houses, railroad train scenes, and other miniature creations.

You will discover that a hobby is something you enjoy primarily for personal rewards. Therefore, what is your personality type? Not the person that you show to the public, but the real person within.

For example, you may communicate to others that you enjoy the outdoors, however, when invited to join your friends on a camping trip; you make other arrangements to be elsewhere.

You enjoy the company of your friends, but your interest has changed. Camping is not your hobby, but being at home air brushing a design onto your motorcycle is your preference. This is the reason for making a personality list in order to make finding a hobby an adventure for yourself.

Have you begun to notice how our business, educational, and lifestyle interests may change slowly or quickly? Likewise our hobbies and interests change to the same tempo. Life is exciting! Or if your life is not exciting wake it up with a hobby!
