Would you like to be more interesting? An easy way to do this is to have a hobby. Highly sensitive people have a natural way of being creative and having a vast amount of interests. Do you utilize this talent for your personal happiness and being able to share your passions with others?
If not, you’re missing a perfect opportunity to be attractive to the types of people who are “good” for you. By that I mean, your hobbies/ interests, are the vehicle that can help you socialize with others that you have things in common with. Your hobby can be a catalyst to starting your own business or maybe give you ideas to pursue a certain endeavor that you may have not thought about.
I get many questions from highly sensitive people about how they can meet others like themselves. Right livelihood is another common concern. Your talents and passions hold the key to unlock the answers to these questions.
If you feel that you don’t have ideas about a hobby, here is an idea to get you started. Collecting is a fun way to spend your time and share what you have with others. People collect a vast array of items that you may not have thought about. They are as follows:
Indian relics, old calendars, train photos, boat photographs, thimbles, fruit jar labels, salt/pepper shakers, street car tokens, theater programs, menus, buttons, anything animal related, valentines, circus posters, music boxes, gems/minerals, belt buckles, airplane photos, old magazines, books on various subjects, stock certificates, anything automobile related, diaries, and other things that are too numerous to mention! There are many collecting clubs that you can join.
I collect Coca Cola items, old magazines and books, Chinese and Japanese figurines, bamboo plants, and newspaper clippings of articles that interest me. I love searching for these items! My newspaper clippings have helped my writing career immensely. They help me trigger ideas for my books, blog posts, and newsletters.
