Lose Yourself

After my thirteen hour cheese making day on Tuesday...I thought about how much I'm really having fun making cheese. The time flew by, even though I was really tired after all that work!

I've mentioned before that I had a heck of a time trying to "find myself" after I burned out. I couldn't figure out what to do with myself because I wasn't working - contributing to society as they say. 

I think one of the key elements to finding your passions and your favourite hobbies is how time just flies by and how great you feel. I can easily get lost in a good book, in walking the dogs in the woods, cooking and baking, and now in cheese making! I feel like I lost a lot of time over the years, and I am trying to enjoy every moment now because life really is short. I find as I get older, the time is flying by way too quickly so I want to make the best of all moments.

Have you ever thought about this? What makes you feel good and what makes you forget about watching the clock? What could you try, something new, that'll give you these great feelings?

I lose myself in too many things: reading, listening to Mozart, (re)watching old movies I have not seen in ages... Or just being nostalgic.

I think if try something new it'll be listening to classical music and becoming an expert at.knowing what each song is called and who wrote it..

I need to do this. I have a hard time of "letting go". I have to be in control. All the time. Not of others, of me.

Well, if it wasn't for money - or lack of, actually - I would lose myself in traveling and exploring the world.

Since that is not possible LOL I lose myself in photography, arts, charity work (right now I'm on a break from it but hope to return), reading, gardening, music and baking and cooking.

What makes me feel good....crafting, photography and painting! I love to watch my fur babies play, that makes me feel great. And laughing, that really makes me really amazing.
