This is what I do when I'm not working; blog, photography, and of course watch some movies. But when it comes to hobbies or projects blogging and photography are at the top of my list.
This post came about because I found myself getting frustrated with my love for his hobbies and projects. He stays up late sometimes working on his hobbies and/or projects and when he's not in the bed I can't sleep as well. I was starting to make my problem his problem until I quickly checked myself. Thank goodness I can step back and take a holistic view and see the bigger picture looking outside of myself.
When you do what you love as a human being it makes life that much rewarding and enjoyable. With that said I definitely don't want to nor will I get on him anymore about coming to bed when he's lost in time with his hobbies because these are things that make him smile and happy. I also realized how I've slacked off on my blog and photography which I've dived back into and realized how much I missed my hobbies! At 27 weeks pregnant now I get tired faster throughout the day which has caused me to slack off on my hobbies, however I'm making sure to fit them back in because after all these are things I love to do.
Do you have hobbies which cause you to lose track of time? If you're in a relationship do you have a hobby apart from your partner which brings you happiness? I hope you do? If you feel you don't, seriously take a moment and think about what brings you joy when you do it and what causes you to lose track of time.
Have you made the same mistake I have in coming down on your partner for spending time on their hobbies? If so it's good to go back to them and let them know you want them to enjoy the things they do in life and if that something brings them joy to keep doing it! In relationships we bring love to one another and at the same time we have to realize our partners have lives outside of us and encouraging them to do things they love is also showing them how much you love them and their happiness.
Take time and jot down a list of at least 10 things you love to do. If you're list goes beyond 10, AMAZING! If you can't come up with even a few then increase your awareness of yourself as you go about your day so you can take notice of what brings you joy when you're doing it. You can even look back to your childhood and recall what you daydreamed of doing or brought you happiness. Chances are those things are most likely the same things you enjoy doing today.
With that said, hobby on my loves! Go do something you love!
