Be interested… fascinated, even… in the world around you and stay interested… fascinated, even… every day of your life. That’s the advice I heap on just about everyone I know. I may not (or may, depending on who I’m talking to!) say the exact words, but I convey the exact thought.
When we are interested in as many things as possible, we not only make life more interesting, we make ourselves more interesting. We open up a whole world of reasons to look forward to the next moment.
Have you ever embarked on a new hobby and found yourself so excited to learn more about it or taken up a new sport and get practically giddy at the thought of perfecting your skills?!
The world if FULL of interesting, fascinating subjects and hobbies – pull up a seat and find a handful!
Some of my own interests.. just to expand your own thought bubble a bit:
- Cooking and recipes
- Bible Study
- American History
- Old Movies
- Ancient Egypt (especially Cleopatra)
- Harriet Tubman
- Presidents and First Ladies
- Amelia Earhart
- Bird Watching
- Flower gardening
- Biographies and auto-biographies
- Reading Agatha Christie mysteries (over and over again)
- Bigfoot… yes, of course I’m serious, why do you ask?!?!
- Word Find Puzzles (obsessed, y’all)
The world is a buffet of interests and they’re just waiting for you to fill your plate! ~ Joi
