“Rome wasn’t built in a day.”
My favorite hobby has everything to do with the outdoors; whether it’s traveling and experiencing new cultures and cuisines or playing sports such as baseball, football, basketball or soccer, it’s one of my favorite things to do daily. Being outside provides clarity and enables me to think about or re-evaluate my goals. It’s a mind-clearing and freeing experience that gives me answers I seek but may be too close to during the work day.
