Hobbies and Humor

Sometimes we take our life and our self too seriously and truthfully there is a lot of humor in almost everything.

 

If we can slow down and notice the fun, we can enjoy life a lot more, and we can probably laugh at ourselves more than anything else. This is actually a dare. My husband and a couple of friends think I have such a great sense of humor and that I should write a humor blog. The problem is I don’t know how to be humorous on the spot. It just pops out. So we will see.

I have learned that I need to slow down. That in itself could be a joke because at my age I have slowed down a lot. But, I am rarely in the moment. I am daydreaming about the next project or mulling over the past. I know yoga is a good way to be more mindful and I have tried it. I read that being creative can add years to your life. I know not all people feel creative, but I think we are all made in the image of a very creative God and perhaps hidden in the depths of our soul is a bit of creativity. The best way to find out is to try a hobby.

This blog is my dare to creatively find humor in the mundane and to post some hobbies that other people are doing as well as some of mine to allow my readers to discover their creativity.

Discernment

I like to start my mornings with a good cup of coffee and a notebook for journaling my thoughts. I realize I have gone overboard.  Not overboard with coffee (is that even possible?) or journaling although I have too many journals and so little time. I have...

Coffee Is A Hobby

I love coffee! I love big mugs, and I cannot lie! There was a time I had to force myself to drink coffee by sheer determination, but not today!  A college friend and I thought it would make us more sophisticated. Indeed it was one of the wiser things I did...

What’s up?

People have all sorts of hobbies. Hobbies are fun, and if we do them right, we have the opportunity to meet a lot of great people through our art. My husband is a photographer and has joined a photography guild in the area. He has read many books on...

Artists

I have a picture on my desk that says, “All my life I wanted to be an artist but did not envision many specifics about what that journey might look like. It was simply BE AN ARTIST.”  I liked it because it summed up my repressed dreams and I didn’t know...

Hobbies Are Us

Hobbies are fun, but what exactly is a hobby? Webster says a hobby is “something that one likes to do.” So I would say that leaves the door wide open for anything to be a hobby. There may be a lot of things we like to do: reading, needlework, photography,...
