You Need A Hobby! One of my eNewsletter subscribers (Jim W. From Tennessee) sent me information on his hobby. I loved his stories and the photos. Jim collects, re-tools, and races Mustangs. His hobby caused him to meet his wife of 40+ years, meet folks who have become friends, bond with younger members of his family, and travel. He tells me that his car hobby has even kept him young! That's good stuff. Jim closed his letter to me with this: "Mustangs, and the people who love them, are two of my favorite parts of life! Regarding my hobby -- I live it and love it. I hope that everyone can find something similar that they love and are passionate about, and live it, too!" Wow! Thanks Jim! Here's my question to you: What's Your Hobby? Here are some of the benefits of having your own wonderful hobby obsession: 1. It is an important aspect of having a well-balanced life. 2. Because it is something that you enjoy and do voluntarily, you will become happy every time that you find yourself working on your hobby. 3. A hobby will challenge your thinking, and strengthen you mentally. 4. You become better at managing your time (so that you can get to your hobby). 5. Having a hobby will calm you. 6. You will never be caught bored and with nothing to do. Your hobby will always be there to fill your free time. Your hobby can be anything that you LOVE to do. It doesn't have to be expensive or take away from other important parts of your life. When you find the hobby that is right for you, you will find it to be the perfect friend, ready to be picked up whenever you have a chance. So again I ask: What's Your Hobby?
