    Bored and a in rut.

    Does anyone else ever feel like you are in a rut and extremely bored with your life.
    My life is awesome and I am very lucky, I have a great wife and marriage,great kids, financially I am doing very well I have everything going in my favor.
    I am just bored and seems like there is no excitement or challange anymore. I have many hobbies (traveling,hunting,fishing,4 wheeling) that I enjoy but in whole life is just the same rut over and over.

    I spent many years building my businesses that took long days,lots of stress and pressure and they are running smooth now and requires a lot less of my time. I don't know if its from spending all those years under that pressure and now that its gone I am missing it or what is going on. I really do not want that type of pressure in my life again because it was very stressful on my marriage and I did miss a lot of time with my kids.

    I am not looking for a pitty party I know most people would love to be in my situation and I am very fortunate for my life.

    Just wondering if anyone else has ever ran into this before.

    Of course. Happens to everyone. Just pick a small, fast hobby to do in the mean time.

    Don't get a hard one though because life seems to jump back up in full speed with out telling you!

    This sounds like me atm - dead on

    But, I blame my inner boredom on sobriety. After I got off the stims I never really came back the same. I'm aight - but, it's like damn near everything is just more boring.

    Personally I thought it was all from the neurological damage I gave myself.

    It's called a mid life crisis... Everyone goes thur it.. I did and surly handled it the wrong way and now I'm divorced. I had it all family business homes cars and it still wasn't enough and I went looking For excitement, unfortunately I found it and it turned out bad bro! So, if u are truly thankful for what u have better evaluate ur feeling a little closer! Not sayin' this to be mean but just as a word of caution... I would never want to see what happened to me places upon anyone else!

    This is def the case for most of us

    Currently, one of my close friends is going through this shit. Straight left his wife, which I have been friends with for almost 20 years - for a straight skank. Had his shit down tight - straight left, out of nowhere.

    I will admit with my personality I tend to take everything to the extreme that I do, I never test the water I normally jump in neck deep. Moderation has never been a strong trait for me.

    This is interesting comment. Some believe we are born with a void which can only be filled by Jesus. For non believers, atheists and agnostics this is a tough sell bc the world doesn't promote Godliness, at least IMHO.

    I am in a rut too but I am also unhappy. In the past, I've volunteered and it seems to lift my spirits.

    Fairly deep thread here

    The interesting part is that I came to this void like feeling when I achieved the highest level of success after years of struggling.

    this... I discovered that as soon as I stopped thinking about myself and put others in front of me I started to receive so much more happiness..

    You sure your testo is ok?. It could be so simple. If your are at 300-400 life would go and you easily do your day with your wife and money and you will not necessary loose your gains, but the eye of the tiger would be gone. And the burning for challenge. check it man:-)

    At first it may sound like a chore, but helping others with nothing to gain by it can be very fulfilling.
