Learning to golf has been quite the process for me. Even how to hold the club and keep my feet planted. I enjoy playing (more if I don't keep score) and learning. I got some new clubs last year and I think it helped to improve my game...yet I am told that it is very often not the club that is to blame.
What I do not enjoy about the game is the insistence of my going to the driving range. It feels like I'm wasting time and just hitting balls...like I'm not getting anything accomplished. I'd much rather just go out and play and call that my practice.
I bring this up because I feel that a lot of women may have the same attitude about many of the hobbies and interests in their lives. What I do find important is the practice of letting go of the need to feel as though every moment of every day needs to be filled with activites that give a sense of accomplishing something.
There will always be things that need to be done within the home and family dynamic. But allowing ourselves to have a little "me" time is truly essential to our well-being.
Whatever it is that you find enjoyable as a hobby I say do it. Make time for it. But, more importantly, do it without regret and without guilt. It is OKAY to take time for yourself.
And, as always... Live Well. Live on Purpose. Live Your Dreams.
