Most of you may not know this, but I work as the managing editor of a local publication. This has been a pretty recent development and I am still settling into the role. The biggest change for me has been an increase in my workload. Also, my schedule has gotten super crazy.
As I said, though, things are starting to settle down and I am finding balance once more. I am living my life and I am thriving.
I am also trying new things. I have picked up a new hobby, an artistic one, and I am really enjoying it.
I think that is something people miss out on sometimes. Doing things for fun. Making things. Creating things. Not every second of every day needs to be devoted to things that bring you profit.
It is okay to do things simply because you enjoy them.
Also, hear me out here, there may be ways you can turn your passion into profit. It may not turn into a fulltime job, but it can become something.
And even if it doesn’t, it can still be worth it. It can help you deal with stress, bring you peace. It can bring a small spark of creativity to an otherwise mundane, repetitive day.
It can also connect you with others who also enjoy that hobby. It can help lead you to your passion.
So, go on out there. Try something new.
Who knows? You may just love it.
