Find 3 Hobbies: One to make you money, one to make you creative & one to make you healthy

A few years back, I found that true happiness and success could be found when we live a life that aligns more with our passions. I was depressed and neglecting all my own needs and desires because I was so caught up in just trying to survive each day as a busy working wife and mom. I no longer had hobbies or passions that I was attentive to. Survival mode was in full effect. And it was the lowest place I’d ever been. So, I thought about the quote in the title of this post - find 3 hobbies....

I revolutionized my life to one more in tune with my dreams by finding those 3 hobbies; one to make me money, one to allow me to be creative and one to make me healthy. I also became a better wife and mother and human in this world.I focused on my health first because that was easiest at the time. I wanted to lose 20 pounds. Incidentally, my chosen avenue to a healthier and fitter life ended up being something that allowed me to make money by sharing it with others. And soon after that I found myself passionate about telling my story and inspiring and empowering others through writing (my something creative).

What I want you to take from my story above is that I didn’t know where to start or exactly what I wanted. But I jumped all in on taking small actions that would get me closer to feeling just a little bit better. And the rest evolved. The quote “A rising tide lifts all the ships” certainly rang true for me. And it can for you too.

I will remind you though, change is simple but hard. People sometimes mistake intensity for consistency. Here’s an example -you can spend 5 hours a day for 3 days straight, going to the gym intensely trying to lose 20 pounds but it’s not going to happen. Or you can show up 5 days a week for 30 minutes for 2 months and you will lose that 20 pounds. Consistency always trumps intensity.

And if you want to hit your goals faster, go all in, take massive action and create a lifestyle change that you are not willing to give up on this time. And when times get tough, you struggle or fail, remember the same thing I always told myself, you can quit today, but you can’t quit tomorrow.

You alone have the power to change your life for the better and it starts with finding your 3 hobbies.

I completely identify with this Jessie! I too found myself depressed and in working mommy survival mode a few years ago. I launched my blog and it's been a wonderful creative outlet for me. Thank you for sharing your story! :)
