Every time we, or someone we know starts a new project or hobby, it's hard not to ask, "so, you want to be this later, or what?" And I really wish people would stop it. I mean, it's literally turning fun into work.
I painted this:
I think we limit ourselves when we start thinking about making careers out of everything we try, or ask kids if they want to "be" everything they're trying. Suddenly it adds this pressure to take it more seriously, be super good at it, and it's not as easy to let it go, or try something new if the opportunity arrises. This kind of discipline and dedication can of course be good, if the hobby is something we want to be that dedicated to. But sometimes, especially when we've just started something, it's better to take things lightly. Sometimes we want to try a bunch of new things just for fun.
Things aren't "worth it" only if you can make money off of them. Taking that pressure off and having some fun will help us try new things without fear of failing, open ourselves up to more creative ideas, and surprisingly, we might actually find that thing we want to "do." It's like how they say you'll only find that perfect person when you stop looking for them.
Stay open to experiences and adventures, and just go out and do stuff for fun. Even if you don't "find" anything, you'll make some great memories, which is what life's all about.
