Sticking to a New Hobby
I can feel another hobby/interest coming.
And yes, I’ve had a number of them. All fizzling out too soon, most of them before I can even claim a novice status.
Not counting other hobbies as a kid, some things I got initially super passionate about only to lose interest/motivation or both after a few tries include: guitar, cooking, baking, digital photography, lomography, boxing, Japanese language, Spanish language, drawing, Aikido, and music-mixing to name a few.
Some of the fizzling out involved the inability to keep up with the regular expense of engaging in the said hobby, but most of them just died due to intrinsic reasons, i.e. laziness and/or getting discouraged. I notice that I tend to have those bursts of interest, that if unsustained just die natural deaths, sometimes in a matter of weeks, sometimes days. Other times, when it becomes challenging (frustrating), I just stop trying. Maybe because I fear failure. But this just makes it all the more ironic because not trying is a failure in itself.
