Hi im very outgoing adventurous and looking really for something
different, In my personal life, im a current listening samaritan so i
would consider helping possibly in another country ? third world or in
need of help ? Ideally i would like to be getting a wage as it would
help. Anything considered,iv spent around 7 years in the army, im
still very fit, doing about 10 full marathons a year, there must be
something i could do or help or some organization that would have me
as a willing helper ? I have no ties only a current mortgage hence a
wage to keep it going, thanks for your help and look forward to any
ideas or suggestions you may have, thanks,  Paul Hansen

I'm not sure but I think that the French Foreign Legion has been
disbanded (if that's the one that you had in mind).

Having lost all its colonies, France no longer needs a Foreign Legion.

Have you considered becoming a gigolo?

I think that Paul, at 48, is to old for either of your suggestions 
However the French Foreign Legion is still in being

Yes, Kemlo, but it won't enlist 48 year-olds.

Do you belong to a Samaritan organization?  Have you considered
working for an organization that does humanitarian work; anything from
the Peace Corps to religious aid groups, maybe those helping overseas
or catastrophe areas?

Take this as kindly meant.

Your non-captitalization of 'i's is a bit odd for a good communicator

The French Foreign Legion and the Samaritans indicate that you are
looking for a structured environment.

Probably your current skills are obsolete (or no longer recognized).

Growing old is not pleasant

I think in your circumstances I would learn to drive a truck, basic
skills are always useful.

What about being a Cadet Leader?  They are always looking for adults
to help lead kids in a structured environment.  It's always free, and
you get to travel the world.  No commitment to join the military, just
very structured and lots of opportunities to do different things.

I will be placing my son into the Cadets when he is of age to do so. 
12 or 13 I think is the youngest you can join.  I live in Canada, and
they get paid to go to summer camp.  Sounds good to me anyway.

Despite all the advice on the French Foreign Legion, I was thinking
about your question quite a lot. In view of your interets, it might be
worthwhile for you to do some travelling,(this is coming from a second
year uni undergrad, but travelling worked for me in  time of crisis,
:)) The red cross and Oxfam do a lot of work abroad helping people.
There are also companies that do 'sponsored travels' where you take a
placement abroad, say in Australia, and do conservation work, and you
get given a living allowance for food etc. The only websites i know
where this info is given are gap-year sites for students, but maybe
you could take a look, to get some ideas, or maybe to talk to someone
there who could advise you? Working on the Great Barrier Reef and the
Rainforests could be really fulfilling for you!

I think you should work as a coach for a sports team in highschool or
a sales person.

Dear Paul,
I can feel your feeling now. I had met this kind of feeling before. I
wanna to find a new lifestyle. because i was very sad during that
period. I hated myself. i think i will never have the future . Because
i lost my job and my family at the same time. I wanna to die. However,
there a kind of voice who told me that you should stand up. you have a
long road to go, So i attended the colleage exam. Fortunately , i
passed it. meanwhile , i believed in God. Every month i went to church
to pray for everything. I know God listen to me. I become more and
more happiness. Thanks God. Now i have a good job. Paul, don't think
you are too old. you are still young before the person who are 90
years. you will have a long road to go. Do not cry any more. You are
best. Believe yourself.
Warm Regards,

Sophia (from China)
