A Life Lived With Passion Part 3

So what do you do when you are not working and eating? What fills in those hours you have before bedtime? If your answer is staring at the TV, you are missing out on a lot.

If you read my blog, you must get some enjoyment from the written word. Go to the library, peruse the shelves, and pick out a book that looks interesting. I like to alternate between reading a work of fiction and non-fiction. The last fiction book I read was “Brilliant” by Marne Davis Kellogg, and it was absolutely fabulous. Before that, I read an autobiography on Milton Hershey (of Hershey chocolate fame). Fascinating man. He had care programs for workers before any other business did and a great philanthropic heart. Whatever I read, I always learn something, and my vocabulary improves.

Have you been thinking of a particular hobby? Do you want to express your creativity? The internet is an amazing thing. Just Google whatever spark is in your brain, and you are on your way.

Personally, I have many hobbies. I paint, write, knit, make jewelry, sew, take photographs, cook and read. I tend to alternate between my hobbies. Right now I am into painting again. There is nothing more satisfying than taking pride in something you have painted. My only problem now is trying to figure out where I would like to place my art!

Do you find that you drive home, and stay indoors until it is time to go back to work? Time to change that. Put on your walking shoes, and stroll around the neighborhood. Unearth your bicycle from the garage and use it! My favorite time of year to walk is during the fall months, when the air is crisp and there is no humidity, plus, if you walk at night (wearing some sort of reflective item please) you can look in your neighbor’s windows and check out the décor. It’s not peeping if they leave the curtains open!
