Sticking with it.

One of the biggest problems I have with any hobby is sticking with it. I am very enthusiastic in the beginning and then as time goes on, either I’ve semi-mastered it or my life just gets so busy, I give up. It’s not the best of habits and at least I will try to get to some level of proficiency. However, the issue is how much I invest in it, in terms of time and money spent. When I start up with something, it just seems like I have to do it right and I go all out buying gear, supplies, etc. Thereafter, I think… “In retrospect, that wasn’t the best idea at all!”

But, this time I’m determined to stick with at least one thing. Writing blog posts more frequently. Hopefully, life will get less busy and I can do more than just blog becuase I think it’s important for people to have hobbies. When I started to draw again, ever so briefly, I felt so good. I felt more relaxed and more likely to be able to take on the stress of work. So whatever the activity, it’s important for us to foucs on something other than work, family, the daily distractions of life.

  1. I feel like I am having similar troubles; I chalk mine up to a lack of discipline…I struggle with deciding how much pushing I should really need to do, especially in hobbies that I consider matters of the heart; for be that’s making art. Without art I feel miserable, but it’s so hard to make myself go to the easel and make! Like working out… Why is it so difficult to do something that you know is good for you, that makes you feel good? I dunno… But if you figure it out, send me a hint! 😄

    1. Ha ha. Likewise, if you figure it out before me let me know. I don’t think it’s a lack of discipline. May be it’s a matter of how to make it a habit. I promise myself everyday that I’ll start working out. It still hasn’t happened! But yes, something needs to be done, for sure.

      1. Maybe we should ask all those people who have their lives together and make it look so easy 😎 I tried following a friend who has solid routines and that was harder than just coming up with my own and sticking to them for a week or two before quitting. Maybe routine is overrated? Work out when you can, write when you can, and it will all amount to something in the end…I hope 😄
