Hobbies, obsessions and the Washing Basket
On the way home from a quilting evening last night, I had time to ponder on my many hobbies, and to question myself even more than usual on my OU journey.
I have what can only be honestly known as an obsessive personality. Whatever (old or new) hobby I am currently busy with is usually my focus to the exclusion of many other things. When I am sewing the rest of the crafts take a back seat, when I am gardening it's from dawn till dusk.
Which leads me to wondering when I stopped feeling that way about my OU journey? It seems that the closer to the goal I get, the less enthusiasm I have for the task. Studying is currently feeling akin to the washing basket, a task that needs to be coped with or got through.
I would dearly like to rekindle some of that earlier enthusiasm. I still love the learning but am taking less joy from the journey to get there.
But there still lies that feeling of how sad it would be to get so close and then stop. And so onwards I go again.
Someone please give me back that spring in my steps on the road to knowledge?
