Lego has always been one of my favorite things. Ergo, it's one of my passions. So now, i've made it a goal to buy one lego box per month to feed this lego-lovin' side that's always lived in me. I'm at 3/12 sets! I'm excited to make this collection grow because I can finally fulfill one of my long term dreams. Now, I can't wait until September comes around!
Another reason on why I want to do this is because I become motivated to get my life moving. When I have a hobby I'm totally passionate about, I feel unstoppable. Another lego means I did well in 1 month. It means I have enough income to sustain a hobby that excites me! I enjoy the feeling of rewarding myself with something that I love for doing a job well done.
Lego allows me to engage into my creative, playful, and imaginative side. It also exercises my skills. When I'm building these things, whether it's easy or advanced, I'm being myself. I'm in my realm and that makes me happy. I know I'm pretty tech savvy, but I want to know that I'm not always stuck on my phone or computer. I want to do things that push me into doing some kind of labor with just my hands. No technology. No cyber things. Just me and my hands... just like me with my pencil and paper. It makes me feel like I'm living for something more than what I see everyday. It makes me know that my brain is working with basics and I don't need a screen to be better at something. It makes me proud and happy to be alive.
Lastly, Lego makes me happy. It takes my mind away from my problems and stress. The building part doesn't last very long but the feelings stay for a very long time.
