So I'm 25. Today (after 10 years of playing), I realized that I no longer have a desire to play music....at all... I was recently re-introduced to the ocean after living away from it for many years and now being on paddle boards, boats, scuba diving, and fishing are all things that I can't stop thinking about. Can people totally replace a source of happiness for another without even having a shred of desire to go back to the former?

Has anyone else ever felt this way?

yeah, hobbies and interests change over time, especially when something new comes up. You'll probably find an interest in music again once the initial rush/thrill of the new stuff wears off

All depends on how much you really valued guitar, whether it was just a hobby or a lifestyle. Sounds like the former here. I'm sure there's an Ultimate-Ocean forum you can join now

Why would anyone have guitar as their lifestyle

Either didn't understand what I meant or a bad troll, but I got 10 more hours of work to kill so I'll bite. Meant lifestyle in that you're either a legit musician or strive to be one. You practice every hour you can, think of licks when you can't. As opposed to a hobby where you pick up a guitar, strum a few chords to relax and get back to your day. Obviously there's many inbetweens, but if guitar/music doesn't mean as much to you as it may for others, what TS described is a possibility.

Follow your muse. I had a friend once who was an extraordinary guitarist and he also played a little baseball. He made his living playing for the Padres but his first love was always guitar. Baseball ultimately tore him up.

We went to HS together. He was baseball, I was swimming/water polo and we jammed on Black Sabbath and Zeppelin in the evenings. A very intense guy and incredible guitarist.

Very cool, read the majority of the article and you could tell that music was his passion. Sad how it had to end though

Or like winning the work disability lottery, if you're that desperate.

Shark attacks aren't regular enough to even bother thinking of this.

You're more likely to be hit by a car or mauled by a dog. By the same logic you should never leave your house and live inside a pillow fort.
When I was eleven I broke the patio window and my mother sued me... She's always been a very aggressive litigator.

He also has a better chance of being crushed by a vending machine. Be afraid TS.
