Readers, I am restless and cranky and bored.

So here’s the thing.  I have a pretty perfect life.  I have a steady job, make good money, fun hobbies and good friends.

But I’m still cranky lately.  How ungrateful is that, right?

I feel restless.  Like every day is the same and nothing ever changes.  And you know what? I’m right.  Every day is basically the same.  It feels like there’s nothing to look forward to.

I’m trying to remind myself that I have fun hobbies that I like to do, so I should, you know, do some of them when I get bored and restless.  Because if I let myself get too bored and restless I get cranky. So that’s a problem.  I have lots to do but nothing I’m excited about.

I want to change that but I’m not quite sure how.

Things I can do if I’m restless:

  • Write
  • Read
  • Paint
  • Watch TV
  • Run
  • Take photos
  • “Walk” the dog
  • Paint my nails
  • Clean (hahahahahahahahaha!)
  • Cook
  • Organize clothes/books
  • Go to the Bytowne
  • Bike
  • Do yoga


So it’s not that there’s a lack of things I can do.  There’s just a lack of things I’m *excited* about.

So readers, how do you get yourself excited about life?

  1. Sometimes it can be difficult to get excited about things…i like new things that I have never done before…new shows to watch…new places to visit or hang out. New books. etc.

  2. I’m not excited often. I think age plays into it….. I remember as a teenager getting so very excited for .. well, almost anything out of the ordinary. Now, excitement is rare. Maybe we should take up sky diving, that must be exciting.
