Finding a hobby

“So, what do you do in your spare time?”

That dreaded question you get when you meet someone new, at job interviews or sometimes on application forms.

Let me think….I scroll through my phone, sit at the computer, cook, clean, sleep – repeat.

I don’t have a hobby. I have tried and failed miserably at various activities usually because I just wasn’t good enough at it or just didn’t enjoy it.

Playing/trying various musical instruments, dancing, art classes, netball, knitting, tennis, yoga, surfing, swimming – You name it I think I tried it.

 

So what is a hobby? According Wikipedia a hobby is:

“A regular activity that is done for enjoyment, typically during one’s leisure time.”

So why do we push ourselves to do things we don’t enjoy just to say we do something?

In my opinion it’s about belonging, being apart of a community that defines who you are and what you believe in.

As I am still new to blogging, I hope that this will eventually become my ‘hobby’ and will connect to others who feel the same.

What do you do in your spare time? (Yes, I asked !) Comment below!
