Passions are hobbies. Painting, coloring, drawing, knitting, playing music, and so forth.
People are “into” their hobbies. They enjoy doing them and keeping busy with their pastimes.
These days everyone is talking about their addictions – otherwise known as things that they can’t stop doing, which by the way is the actual definition of “addiction.”
When someone is addicted to alcohol or drugs, they cannot stop.
When someone is “addicted” to carbohydrates (that would be me!), they can’t stop (but wait! I haven’t had carbs in several days, right?).
For the purpose of this post, we can call many passions “addictions” if we enjoy them so much that “cannot stop” doing them.
For example, writing.
I enjoy writing. I write every day and when I am writing, I am at peace. I really enjoy the process.
Am I addicted to writing? Maybe.
It is my passion.
The same can be said for any passion one has whether that is photography, cooking, baking, going to the theater, reading, skydiving,…
There are so many passions out there that people can choose from to enjoy in life.
Passions are hobbies that we do because we enjoy them and we grow and develop various interests in life that way. We widen our horizons.
So here’s to our Passiaddictions!
