Three passions #MicroblogMonday


Recently a friend was chatting to me about the importance of making time for the things in life that make you feel really alive. All too often it's easy to end up sleep walking through your week and just going through the motions day to day. She mentioned three things that energize her and it left me wondering what my three passions might be.

  • Dance
  • Dancing was one activity that came to mind. When I was a teenager I took a few dance classes such as hip hop and modern. I used to go out clubbing with my friends most weekends in Ireland for a lot of my twenties and it was always really fun to let my hair down and just go for it on the dance floor! I enjoyed getting lost in the music.


  • Travel
  • I've always enjoyed travelling. Not the journey there so much as arriving in a new place! I generally wouldn't be as excited about doing some of the traditional touristy things such as going to museums though. To me it is often more enjoyable to just wander around and explore. In fact I also love finding new interesting parts of town where I live now, for instance a pretty park or cute cafe. It can be fun to even just let yourself get lost a little.

  • Writing/Reading
  • The third passion that occured to me is reading and writing. That's probably why I set up a book club in Germany several years ago. Ever since I was around twelve years old I've had a diary or journal. I've always loved getting lost in a really good book or just my own thoughts.


So maybe my three passions can be summed up in the phrase, "getting lost", which makes sense as my sense of direction is atrocious! What about you, what activities do you enjoy getting lost in?

  1. Oooh, I love this. Travel is definitely up there, and so is reading and writing. Maybe photography, maybe cooking, maybe walking in nature (though I don't do it nearly enough).

    1. I've always thought it would be fun to do a photography course some time and get a really good camera. Over the years I've come to enjoy cooking too. It was never something I was interested in when I was younger. And yes nature walks are lovely!

    1. Thanks! Yeah it's so easy to get so busy with life that you forget to make time for the things you really enjoy.

  3. Gorgeous photos, and I love the theme of "getting lost" in your passions. Wonderful list, and a great thing to hang onto as your life gets busier. I love reading, writing, gardening, visiting botanical gardens wherever I travel, music...great food...the list goes on and on. I love experiencing beauty, whether it's in a new place, or in my garden, or great writing I'm reading, or a well-plated meal. Ahhhh. Great post!

    1. Thanks! I love looking at gardens myself especially but unfortunately have never been any good at gardening! Oh yes, enjoying good food is a nice hobby too! "Experiencing beauty", I like that.

  4. I thought I had commented on this but clearly not...

    My favourite way to get lost is in a book, as anyone who has read even one of my blog posts probably knows ;-) Travel as well. Or even doing "holiday-ish" things without actually travelling anywhere - like visiting gardens here on Basel or going for a walk along the Rhine.

    1. Yeah I love doing holiday-ish things where I live too! It can be so much fun to just go for a walk somewhere and discover new places. Yes, I could tell you love reading from your blog! :-)
