On a recent evening I was complaining of being bored. My husband jokingly exclaimed "You need a hobby!" Taken aback, I proclaimed "I have a hobby." Of course, he and I both knew that I was referring to running. To my complete surprise, he said "No, you have a passion."
Wow! Sometimes it takes someone else to point out the obvious. I took it as a compliment, of course. It really touched me and made me think about my choices. I am proud of my choices.
