I do think people with no hobbies are loosing out on life. I and many others that share many interests have the joy of finding something interesting and fascinating to do with every free hour of our time. There is no such thing as a boring day and this is because we love many things, that can be shared with others or with none other than you. I’ve met several people that have no interests besides their friends and when they aren’t together, they get depressed or just plain bored. A friend of mine told me recently about a double-date he was on with his other friend. He asked his date what she enjoyed in life and she said “archeology, history, books” and the list went on and on. Now that is fascinating and have an endless fountain of joy for her when she wishes to spend time alone. It also makes her more interesting as a person. On the other side of the table, his friend asked his date the same question and she said “clothes, and make up”. The disappointment was obvious on his face, or so I’ve heard. Not really much to work with on your own with those hobbies is there! Ah well, for each their own.
I’ve also seen women who lives of their boyfriend, turning him into their own personal hobby, which is fine as long as they are happy. But they are missing out on so much. Recently, I’ve come to realize that interests are very important, for couples, friends and for themselves. Please people, get a hobby or two, maybe even five! Something to do besides leeching of other people for your own enjoyment. The day you sit on your ass and realize that your life has been the same boring routine day in and day out is the day you accept the fact that your life has been thrown away. Set your mind free and try new things because you never know what you might experience if you dare think outside the box.
Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.
