Today’s prompt from Blog-tember is: What are you passionate about?
Honestly this is something I am just learning how to answer. For a long time I felt like I didn’t really have all that many passions or hobbies. I actually decided one day to pray about this and ask God to help me find some hobbies cause I felt funny not really knowing what I enjoyed doing. I felt like I was too busy stressing about something silly during my free time that I never really took the time to develop hobbies.
This post could have gone many different ways because I am obviously passionate about different thins, such as Jesus and my friends and family but I wanted to choose to talk about the passions that I am still developing instead. Maybe it will help those of you out there who don’t feel that they really have any hobbies either and encourage you to find the time to treat yourself well and do things that you really enjoy.
- W R I T I N G – Obviously, because of this blog, I am slowly developing a passion for writing. I love the idea of helping out others who are going through the same things that I am and getting feedback from them. I love the idea of having a community of girls through this space but am still learning about how to really cause that to be a reality.
- R I D I N G A D I R T B I K E – Another hobby of mine that has developed since I prayed that prayer and this one is from the help of Tommy. Riding a dirt bike was something I always thought was really cool and something I wish i could do but never had the opportunity. One of the things that attracted me to Tommy was that he rode dirt bikes and it didn’t take me all that long after knowing him to buy my own and have him teach me. It’s still something that I’m learning to love (because I can be a scaredy cat sometimes) but it’s so much fun. It’s something that pushes me outside my comfort zone. I usually like to stick with safe activities because I’m afraid of getting hurt but it’s really fun pushing those boundaries and I can’t wait to keep practicing and get even better.
- R E A D I N G – Reading is something that I always did but not something that I ever really made that much time for. I never realized how much enjoyment I got out of it until recently and I’ve been making more time to do it. I just love how there’s so many options and how it takes you completely away from reality for a time and can teach you so much.
That’s all I have for you guys this time. I’m hoping that God continues to answer my prayer and I develop even more hobbies/passions. And just a reminder, something God’s been teaching me lately is to remember it’s important to remember to make time for your passions. It’s important to love yourself well so that you are able to love others and an important way to do this is to keep yourself refreshed by indulging in your passions every now and then.
