This evening I’m watching the Thomas Crown Affair starting Pierce Bronson and Rene Russo. It’s the new one…made in 1999. One of the main character states “Everyone needs a hobby.”
James Bond had a hobby! https://youtu.be/yw3X-lzwmOM
And yes, even I have a hobby: a worthless advice blog.
Sure, sometimes I forget about my hobby and my worthless advice blog gets neglected. I don’t write and that is just plain silly of me because in the end, who suffers the most? You do. You do, my poor readers. I neglect you and that’s a terrible mistake. Why should I deprive you of my advice? Do my stories not enlighten you? Do they not impart you with my vast knowledge and wise experiences?
Every once in a while, Cyndi (my imaginary stalker) has to remind me that life isn’t all about rainbow and unicorns. Sometimes it is about doing something more important, sometimes it involves putting down Mr. Whiskers and writing for the readers of my blog. For you my dear readers, I’ll put down Mr. Whiskers this evening and write a blog entry. Because, hey, you deserve it.
What is your hobby? A hobby should be something that engages your mind, it helps your soul, and it will lead to positive health benefits. (Of course if making meth in your garage is your hobby, it probably won’t lead to positive health benefits but it will engage your mind….chemistry is hard stuff).
Hobbies are an escape from your everyday that allows you to decompress. You are able to relax and think something other than the burdens of being an adult.
Hobbies are also something you don’t mind wasting time on. You can spend hours doing your hobby and it won’t matter because you enjoy it. It brings you joy.
However, a hobby should be positive for you and for those around you. Smoking cigerettes around a daycare center isn’t a good hobby. Watching an excessive amount of TV is a bad hobby also. Instead you should be reading my blog. Clearly, my blog is an excellent hobbit.
What is your favorite hobby (besides reading my blog)?
