Thoughts for today…
There’s a fine line between hobbies and obsessions. I’ve been thinking about how to be a professional when your hobbies bleed into your daily life as though you have no other purpose other than to obsess over them. Haruko Hobbies need to be frivolous and less useful than ordinary normal pursuits. They are fun, yet always have an edge of challenge. As I go about the business of building a life I love, and attempting to curve my hobbies, obsessions and ambitions into a future, I will remember that being true to myself and my passions is aligned with having a happy life. I will settle for more, not less, and I will also remember that while it is true that “life is full of trade-offs” we still get to choose what we trade.
As always, cheers to being yourself!
