Re: I need more excitement in my life

Travel is great, but you cant live on the road. You need an activity you can do on a daily, or at least weekly basis. Have any sports or hobbies ever caught your fancy? Now sounds like a good time to dive in. It's also a great way to meet people with whom you have something in common and expand your social circle.

Define what "exciting" means to you?

This is good advice.
Cruises are great fun.

By sitting at different tables for lunch and dinner you meet many wonderful characters, young and old.

If shore excursions are part of the itinerary this is where you really have fun. Especially, in Europe.

Iím not trying to be inquisitive but how much spending money do you have.It is all very well for someone on tam to recommend traveling but can you afford it?
Now to me roughing it means staying in a hotel that doesnít have twenty four hour room service but Ymmv.

Re: I need more excitement in my life

Join one of the Military Reserve forces. Be a weekend warrior. If you are a college grad and are under 32 you can go to OCS and become an officer. I would recommend the Air Force Reserve if you become an Enlisted soldier. The Air Force treats its folks better!

I spent almost 40 years in the Army Reserve and Army National Guard. I traveled all over the U.S. and all over the world. Pick your unit and the job that you want 'very' carefully. You may be limited in what jobs are open.

I would look into Intelligence positions, stay away from the Military Police jobs. They are very intensive and exciting but making rank and getting promoted is very slow for the enlisted soldiers. Do some other job than the one that you are in, in civilian life. You will enjoy the change of pace.

Hurry up if you are under 32 years old. If not talk 'to' the recruiters. Do not let them rail road you into some job you will hate. Some reservists never go anywhere, or rarely anywhere. Find a unit that has many females. One female among many males is, well, pressuring!!

The economy is booming now. The reserve forces likely are in need of good people....again. It is cyclical.

Re: I need more excitement in my life

@Girl_power,

First let me introduce myself--I am a very whitebread, introverted mom of seven children, 56yo, living in the suburbs. I am possibly about as "unexciting" as June Cleaver (only I don't wear dresses or pearls when I vacuum). I read, write, crochet, cross-stitch, and LOVE movies... so wow, I sound boring, hey?

What you would never know by seeing my whitebread exterior is that I have two tattoos, I go to rock concerts, I ride pillion on a BMW motorcycle (and LOVE it), I love camping and hiking, just tried zip-lining and adored it, and I don't mind getting a little mud on my tires.

Now, I tell you all this because it's fairly easy to see someone from the exterior and think "Soccer Mom" or "boring" when in reality they have a bit of a wild heart. Maybe YOU have a little bit of a wild heart....but either you see yourself as not all that exciting or others have told you you're not that exciting. That doesn't mean you aren't exciting.

The trick is to find what makes YOUR heart sing with excitement.

So yep traveling is a blast, but one person's idea of traveling is 5-star hotels and champagne...and another's is backpacking through the hillside. We don't know you. We don't know what makes your heart sing. But YOU DO!! What is something you have always wanted to try but weren't brave enough to do it? THAT is what you need to do ... JUST DO IT.

I started with one hike up a small hill. Then I started walking every day...and now I want 4-5 miles per day. I started with a 3k on New Years Day and now I participate in 5ks to stay motivated. I started with trying a motorcycle class (that as scary and I was the oldest by far) and now I ride behind my sweetie and LOVE it! I started with a wolf tattoo over my heart to protect it...and I just got another tattoo as a permanent reminder of a promise made. So pick one thing you have always wanted to do or wanted to try. Tell us what it is--inquiring minds want to know! LOL And oh by the way, if you really like reading, writing, crocheting, etc. keep doing those things too! Those activities are quieter but if they bring you joy, that's YOU.

Re: I need more excitement in my life

May you live in interesting times.....

Seriously though excitement varies by the person, and (sadly) your financial situation may limit what sort of excitement you can engage in.

Do you have the resources to learn to fly a airplane? Or travel to exotic locations?

If not, are there nearby places for rock climbing?

If you like less physical excitement, then there are other types - what sorts of activities do you find exciting?

You mentioned you don't have friends to do stuff with. What things would you do if you had the friends who wanted to do them?

Re: I need more excitement in my life

girl power what do you like? restaurants, movies, theaters, museums? You can do almost anything alone that u can do with someone else and if ur not paying for them you can do it more or for longer. And if u meet someone you will already have something in common with them and you dont have to listen to someone complain if you dont want to.

Re: I need more excitement in my life

Another way to travel is to teach English in a foreign country--or several over a period of years. You don't have to have a teaching degree. Immerse yourself in the lifestyle--food, music, culture, history, people.

I have friends that have done this all over the world.
