1. an activity done regularly in one's leisure time for pleasure
2. a pursuit outside one's regular occupation engaged in especially for relaxation
I think for me, a hobby is something that often times helps me to count my blessings and realize how much I have and how God has blessed me. Hobbies are often times the way we express the extra special gifts God gives each of us. Some people have been given opportunites to train under masters in music, art, a sport or something else and God is able to use the love for that interest in an incredible way. Some have just picked it up because they were interested. Either way, God placed the interest and directed the love.
What do you like to do? What do your hobbies mean to you? Did someone special teach you or is it something you just picked up?
