Why I chose to Paint?

Up until 2018, I did not pursue any hobbies. I was brought up in a city, life was fast paced and I did not give much thought about hobbies.

In 2017, someone spoke about hobbies and how it helps de-stress. That is when my journey of searching for and a desire to pursue a hobby began.

A hobby is defined an activity done regularly in one’s leisure time for pleasure. So I googled up the various hobbies that are there and what I can possibly pursue. To give you a little background, I am a mother of a current almost 3 year old and 8 year old, both of whom I homeschool. The time that I have at hand is minimal and I wanted to have a hobby that would help both my children and me.

Right about then, my then 7 year old showed interest towards painting. So I decided to give that a shot. This happened in June 2018, and that is how I chose to paint. When I did begin, I was skeptical and I was so unsure. I did not quite think it would end up becoming a hobby that I would enjoy so much. With time, commitment and perseverance, the desire that I had once to pursue a hobby became a reality!

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try!

I’m glad I decided to give painting a shot! This is something, I am going to be proud for life!

Now, I paint every Saturday in the afternoons, along with a friend. Well, the details of that, I shall save it up for another post!
