I have been recently looking for new hobbies and things to build up my life. I have been looking for things that I feel will be uplifting and mind clearing. I want a hobby that will give me the opportunity to clear my find and help find the true me.
I have been trying out several individual activities: yoga, fishing, gardening, sewing, crafting, bicycling, hiking, cooking, painting, and horseback riding. All of these had some great qualities, but some I was just simply not good at.
Painting was a terrible idea. I was horrible, it actually gave me more of a headache than clearing my mind. Sewing basically in the same boat. I was so bad. I couldn’t sew anything straight or even measure out the fabric correctly.
I found that I am not a creative person. I am not good at taking abstract ideas and putting them together so I realized I was best at the physical activities.
I found that my new hobby was definitely horseback riding. It was the most clarifying activity. Just me and a horse going where ever I wanted to go. My favorite time to ride was just before sunset. It really gave me the peace that I needed to be able to let go of the day to day things that were holding me back.
I really suggest finding yourself! Find whatever it is that gives you peace and clarity in your life and pursue it. You will not be disappointed.
