With time, our priorities change and we have other more important things to take care of, so our hobbies take a back seat. Very few of us are really free to enjoy and pursue our hobbies too. But there are no excuses and if we want to pursue a hobby, we need to take out time for that. I believe that if we want to pursue our hobbies that we like so much, we can, it just takes will power, and a little bit of time management and we can do it, if we want to. I am fond of painting and cooking but somehow with time, have left it and just cook the main meals and its a rushed kind of cooking as my hands are full to do other things too. But now, i have resheduled my routine, and now twice a week, i have made a routine that i will paint for 1-2 hours and so i do manage to do that and cook up goodies for my kids too. Time never comes, we have to take out that kind of time i think and we can if we want to. Just be determined that you want to pursue your hobby too. If you just keep saying that i cannot take out time and dont have time top ursue my hobbies, then you will never be able to , so think positive and you will :)

I love reading, too! Yes, I still have time to read during my spare time. I am busy with my work so reading will have to take the backseat. However, there are times when I get hold of a really good book that even my work gets to take the backseat because I cannot stop myself from reading. I would have to sacrifice sleeping late just to accommodate my reading. Books are things I can hardly resist. Even my mylot sessions are interrupted for a good book. I have lots of hobbies and I would want to do all of them but with my tight schedule, that would be impossible. The only hobby I've managed to maintain is reading. Well, I hope you'll get the time to book yourself for a reading session soon.

I do have time (not as much as before I had my son) but when he is playing or sleeping I relax with one of my many hobbies.

I love to read and I make time to do this. This is my way of relaxing. It is something my Mom instilled in me a long time ago and still is with me. The love of reading.
