With a Hobby-Make your Life Fantastico

Hobby Fantastico

You’re jaded, and 

want to add a little zest to your life

Pick up a hobby – play a sport, go on a drive,

Listen to music, prime your canvas, or explore wildlife;

Make a change for good, give to the society something back,

Life is not only about making a living, but also about making an Impact

You will never feel lonely, with a passion, a hobby that you love,

While navigating through the life’s crests and troughs;

A peppy interest, much like a Zippy car ride,

Will zing your life, relax your mind

Give it a shot,

Give it a Go

Live Life

    Well said! If you have a hobby, it helps you keep going in an otherwise humdrum life. With a hobby, you can create your own life space and be yourself.

    Totally agree. I have many hobbies, hence I vouch for what you have expressed. A hobby never lets you feel alone or sad. Lovely post!

    Lovely post Somali. I have been hearing the word Fantastico quite often these days. Hope it’s a new gen word to be added to oxford dictionaries, like lol, lol

    I loved the idea you expressed. If you can make your hobby pay, then that’s the best thing. 🙂

    Very true. Many of us get stuck in routine and we must make an effort to stimulate our dormant creativity. A great reminder Somali.

      Picking up a hobby is something we can encourage our children for as well. Thank you very much for stopping by.

    Very well written Somali.. We have to do what we love to do and that will keep always satisfied with what we do. Taking up a hobby will make our otherwise ordinary life extraordinary and lively.. Have a great weekend.. 🙂

    I liked the part where you have written …life is not about just making a living. I still remember when I was in school, there was just one choice thrown towards me. Either be a doctor or an engineer.

    • February 7, 2016 at 9:18 am

      Thank you Amod. That used to be the case for most of the science students – the expectation of being a doctor or an engineer. Incidentally I realized how good it is to have a hobby after I picked up this habit of writing. 🙂

    Very well written.. A hobby indeed makes your life interesting and worthwhile which would otherwise seem a faded one.

    Life is to LIVE.. we usually forget this in our daily grind…

    beautiful poem 🙂

    Indeed Somali, life is full of things but many times we get engaged with things and work that are stressful and we need the break, the much needed break to get us restarted. It needs the gentle push, it needs the bout of inspiration and it needs the break from the mundane and the monotony that we get caught and we need to free ourselves and get us zest to get going.

    Yes, these small changes from exploring the nature to capture the imagination on the canvas, to going for cycle ride to walking the forest makes us relaxed and makes us feel better and makes our emotions align and express without any prejudices and without constraints…

    Hobby and our passion are such wonderful engagement we should keep ourselves in that zone of playing and cherishing the smaller things in life and not get lost in our daily routine work and not knowing what to do when we are lost in the wilderness…

      Expression of emotions without prejudice or constraints is what we achieve with hobbies. Thanks a ton for putting it so nicely Nihar. 🙂

        Somali, pls check it along with your comment this message is coming “https://polldaddy.com/js/rating/rating.js”…

        • February 10, 2016 at 9:58 am

          Thanks Nihar, this is some automated stuff. I thought it was something that wordpress.com might have introduced. Will see if there some setting to change this.
