As a kid, I had a pretty big imagination. Like all kids, I was so excited for each new idea and put my all into it. I got lost in these moments of make-believenever thinking about what time it was, what was for dinner, or where a paycheck was coming from. This inadvertent pursuance of passion we have as children typically dwindles as we get older.
By the time I was in college, that zest for activities, creation, and hobbies faded unless you count a zest for beer pongand my energy shifted to spending time with my friends and going out on weekends. But then I graduated and something shifted. I watched my friends get new jobs, promotions, experiences, and relationships. It felt like the world was moving around me, and I was standing still.

Ask yourself questions like: When do I forget to look at my phone? What were things I loved to do as a kid? What feels like active meditation? What lights me up? Looking at my answers, many came from those childhood memories, so I thought about how they could fit into my adult life.
For example, I started cooking more meals at homeread food blogs, and went out to new restaurants I always did love baking treats for my neighbors as a kid! Beyond just hobbies, I got coffee with a woman who owned a cafe to learn what she does and what her career looks like.
Looking into my other answers, I made some plans and took more actions as well, including planning my first European vacation since high school, working out more, volunteering, and going to museums even if I was alone. Life is always evolving, and so are our interests. It takes time, energy, and openness to new things, as well as a whole lotta love for yourself. It often required me to get really vulnerable and do things alone P.
