I need a hobby to take my mind off things. I think we all could use a thing or two that we enjoy to keep our minds off the grind of life. I enjoy taking pictures, but I don’t make enough time to go out and really get into it. When I get stuck in my self-pity I can come up with a million reasons why I shouldn’t go out and take pictures. A big mountain I need to climb is the fact that I get anxious when I step out of my home base. I feel self-concious stopping and taking photos when people are milling about. I’m not quite sure what I think will happen, but it really gets me going. I need to set some small goals and stick to them. Maybe set aside an evening each week where I go somewhere out of my neighbourhood and take pictures. Maybe I should create a theme and try to stick to it. Maybe I should take my own advice on this and just do it! God knows I need a distraction during the week and this would be perfect.
