What kinds of exciting things have you done in life? I dont have much to share myself my life has been pretty laid back and quiet. I was hoping people would share and maybe I could have some ideas.

One of things I do to keep life fresh is to push myself beyond my comfort zones. A couple of years ago I decided to try rock wall climbing (the discussion is posted on my site.) When I got part way up I nearly chickened out..but you know pushing onwards and upwards and getting to the top was a milestone moment for me. It let me know that I was still in good shape...when I was in my mid-forties and that I could do whatever I wanted. It took another 'limiter' off my thinking. When we went down to Moab, Utah we took our Jeep and went through remote backroads and hiked trails without anyone but my hubby and me. In retrospect that was rather short-sighted because if something had happened no one knew where we were. However, it was a blast to just be out in the middle of huge red rock formations and canyons with only ourselves...and Nature. I also like to take my bike up the highest hill I can find...even if I have to walk to get there. Then I begin the fast ascent downwards with my hair blowing in the wind and it is the next best thing to flying. To me the exciting part of anything comes in being willing to take even a few baby steps beyond familiar comfort zones. It doesn't have to be 'big' either. It can be anything that you have never been willing to do before. Public speaking, hiking in a place near home you've never been before. Dancing like a wildwoman when no one is home...anything that moves us away from a sense of stagnation can feel exciting. It sure works for me! Good luck with adding more excitement into your life. Believe in yourself and you can do it!

Hi again..thank you for the best response. After I posted this I was lying in bed and thinking about other exciting things. How about bumper cars...or trying a new ride at a fairground...not something too scarey..just a little 'push' beyond your comfort zones. Sometimes learning a new hobby can be exciting. Grabbing a camera and going out in Nature to see what you might see and photographing it can be exciting. Scrapbooking, ceramics, pottery, drawing and larning to create something new can also be rewarding and therefore exciting. Let you imagination go..leaf through magazines and see if anything draws you. I intend to get a metal detector and go searching for 'finds' with it. So there are lots of other things...hope these extra ideas help. Most of all...have fun and enjoy yourself in whatever you decide to do...life should be fun and interesting..it goes by really fast!

One of the exciting thing that recently done in my life was my online business just nicely put back on track. My web page 'hits' in the cybermarket after three(3) months negotiating and maneuvers(manoeuvres) the right search engine and web promoter. Once hits it makes me more times to enjoy with myLot board and amiable friends here in myLot.
