general question about life and growing up

Is there any way to get like the bright color backs to my life and the overall happiness that I used to feel as a child?

I mean this:





Nothing really Excites me anymore.... is this a phase of growing up?
Kinda sucks that I seem to get emotions pretty much on cruise control nowadays.

Re: general question about life and growing up

Try sledging, it makes me giggle like a schoolchild.

Mountain bikes are good too, they encourage a bit more fun than the road going ones.

that actually sounds good (sledging, not you giggling).

Mountain bikes too.

I usually think of something like skydiving, but at the end this sort of things you (or at least me) can only do it so many times until it becomes routine.

I practice BJJ for example, in the beginning it was very exciting, now it's the daily thing. I'll keep on doing it, but it's not the " Waiting for Xmas eve" sort of feeling that I don't longer get about stuff.

Too much depressing mood for sping on my part I guess .

Truth is it don`t come to find you, you gotta go find it. Easily said I know, but its so true. Noone can tell you to "go to this place or check that thing out" cos thats theirs. You need to search out yours. Look on the bright side, if your feeling a bit drab, you aint ever really hit skid row so thats good. Onwards and upwards.

Re: general question about life and growing up

My ex-mil had a theory about youth going through their last growing-up phase around 25-27 and it is the most difficult one. Tends to be harder for men than women.
I think she might have a point there, I was pretty numb these years myself and looking back I feel like I have completely wasted few years there for nothing.
And when you think about it, why are there so many fallen stars that died at the age of 27?

Hm... difficult question, but I wil try

What keeps me excited and curious to life is travelling.
Exploring places and food I haven't smelt and tasted before. This never gets boring for me.

I do a bigger journey 1 -2 a year, so have to look in between for little adventures in my daily life which keep me animated.
Before my upcoming adventure I get really into it and start reading up about the history of the country... and also prepare to learn some bits and pieces of languages.
(Mostly I book some language course and meet there new mind liked people who also have the travel bug and who share with me the planning and experiences of the place I will go to.)

The preparation takes normally some few months and the excitment to look forward to the journey is awesome.

What I also think is important to prevent falling too much into a 5day work, sleeping, waiting for the weekend routine/monotony, and do new stuff during the week after work or start working part-time and take one or two afternoons off to have time for yourself and do some hobbies.


Well, to find some daily excitments or little adventures for you...
are you more the sporty type or do you like creative things... what are things you haven't done before?

I have it on good authority that a few tabs of acid, a 4x4 and the desert will blow the cobwebs out of your mind and set free the latent man-boy in you. Just don't expect to enter normal society again...
This is really the only option for our Ouchboy.... Unless he wants to change careers. I hear arms dealing and espionage are exciting options. Drug dealing is so last decade.

Re: general question about life and growing up

I find having odd bits of randomness keeps me happy, such as running down the escaltor the wrong way or cartwheeling in town, is as much the disapproving looks as the activity that entertain
