This seems like a really easy question. But today when someone asked me this, I was really stuck. It took me at least a minute to come up with the fact that I like going to concerts.
I started thinking back on all of the things I do before and after work. I even thought of the things I do at work. And other than writing and reading, all I do is just sit around in front of a screen. Now I can’t stop asking myself how I got here.
When I think about things I love to do, I can’t think of the last time I really took the time to delve into them. Our lives, or at least my life, has turned into doing the things that are not that big of a deal for me. I spend time doing things with or for others that by the end of the day, I feel like I’ve actually gotten somethings done. But if I were to look at a checklist of the things I love to do, I don’t know that I would say I checked off more than 2 or 3.
Does it take you that long to think of what you do for fun? I know that I don’t want that to be the case next time someone asks. In this transitional period, I think the most important thing is to focus on what I think is fun. Balancing that with the responsibility of interacting with the world is not easy. But I think turning the focus inward is just what I need.
