It’s strange, we don’t encourage our kids to pursue a hobby for life, as much as we pursue them to excel in school studies / in a particular sport.
A hobby is a very freeing activity!
One can’t call a sport, a ‘hobby’ if the parents are pressuring the kids to excel at it.
A hobby has a very light hearted, JOY centric feel to it, which is FREEing in many ways. It allows the individual to break free from whatever routine they are following.
It’s a gateway to a happy place, which makes it easy for the person to survive the routine..
A hobby can be a saviour!!
And if one pursues it regularly enough, one can easily excel at it!!
As parents, we can imbibe the culture of pursuing a hobby, in our kids. And the simplest way to do it???
Do it yourself first!!
Children follow our actions more than our words. If we be the example to them, they will surely follow!!
Not that the current generation needs hobbies. They are just too aware of what they like n dislike. They may not even go through the struggle of a routine..
Then for who is this post intended to???
Hahaha!! To us.
And if you’re reading this, know that you stumbled upon this write for a reason.
Your hobby hasn’t given up on you! It’s waiting for you, and will hold your hand tight if you just let it..

Blogging/ creatively writing/ journaling /doodling/ colouring, as long as there is a pen and a paper with me, il be in safe hands..
