One of the biggest problems I have with any hobby is sticking with it. I am very enthusiastic in the beginning and then as time goes on, either I’ve semi-mastered it or my life just gets so busy, I give up. It’s not the best of habits and at least I will try to get to some level of proficiency. However, the issue is how much I invest in it, in terms of time and money spent. When I start up with something, it just seems like I have to do it right and I go all out buying gear, supplies, etc. Thereafter, I think… “In retrospect, that wasn’t the best idea at all!”

But, this time I’m determined to stick with at least one thing. Writing blog posts more frequently. Hopefully, life will get less busy and I can do more than just blog becuase I think it’s important for people to have hobbies. When I started to draw again, ever so briefly, I felt so good. I felt more relaxed and more likely to be able to take on the stress of work. So whatever the activity, it’s important for us to foucs on something other than work, family, the daily distractions of life.
