I’ve always been jealous of those people who have something they absolutely love doing, and do it often. For me, finding a hobby has always been a struggle. There are heaps of things out there that I enjoy doing, but I always seem to get tired of doing it after a while.
I’m famous for giving things up halfway through and never finishing what I’m doing. I don’t know why I am that way, and I would love to find something that I can keep doing without getting bored.
The other day, I suddenly felt like learning how to knit. I still feel like it actually. But I know for sure that if I go out and buy the supplies, I will likely do it for a few days, and then I’ll be over it. So it would just end up being a waste of money. Plus, I don’t know if I’m able to teach myself how to knit, so I would likely need to get someone to show me how.
I’ve done heaps of things in the past:
But although I love all of the above things, I simply lose motivation. It’s quite frustrating actually. I think I might have to focus on finding something I enjoy doing as a hobby next year. Perhaps I’ll make it one of my New Year’s resolutions.
I think one of my problems is that I don’t have enough patience. I want to see results straight away. So if I start a cross stitch for example, I get annoyed that it takes so long to finish it. I suppose I just need to learn that good things take time.
Oh well, I’m off to Pinterest to find some inspiration and have a think about what I can do.
What do you do as a hobby?
