Re-Introducing yourself to the things you love

cereal-1262202_1920Between moving, writing my thesis and job hunting, I am mentally and physically exhausted. In the midst of all of these things I have decided to make the effort to re-introduce myself to things that I love. Last week I started a 1,000 piece puzzle(I moved yesterday and didn’t finish it), this morning I am at my sister’s house and poured myself a bowl of Frosted Flakes (With 2% milk)  I haven’t consumed either products in over two years. While I will most likely face repercussions of my dietary choosing later today, for now… I’m content.

Growing up happens fast… a friend asked me what my hobbies were and I hesitated and then answered with a shrug. That scared me. Later that night I thought about things I used to do for fun, before I discovered tequila:

  • Puzzles
  • drawing/ coloring
  • Spoken word poetry

I’m still learning to complete this list. I think re-introducing yourself to things you love is also about remembering who you were before responsibilities and obligations took control. It’s okay to outgrow things, even people… but what’s not okay is to forget who you are and what makes you happy.
