Feeling Like I Need a Change

I was sitting in the ER the other day getting treated for unbearable asthma, when I started thinking about things in my life that needed to change. I'm still young and I have a lot of things in life I wanted to accomplish, but it seems like I am not even on the path towards reaching my goals.
So, I started putting together a forum for women who want support in reaching their life goals and I started thinking that I need support as much as anyone else. I think putting this forum together will help me a little bit if I can get it running.
In a month, I am getting married and my nerves are shot. My fiance is in the Navy and he's deployed right now helping with the disaster in SE Asia and I am here, being supportive and loving. But I am getting cold feet, which is not helping my feelings that my life is meaningless.
I love my fiance and my family and my friends, but I feel like I need something more to my life. I have goals, which I outlined on my discussion forum for my career, my family, my health, and my social life... but I guess I missed another category that I suppose would be "personal."
It's so important to have time to yourself doing the things you enjoy, but it feels like I have to actually make headway in one of my other goals in order to start on the personal ones. I feel like I have no hobbies that I'm able to do, either due to lack of funds, because I need to get in better shape or get better in general (I've had pneumonia) or whatever reason.
I want to find new hobbies and branch out on my interests, but where does a woman even start to explore this other side of herself? I am very confident and know who I am, I know what is important to me, but I want to start trying new things. It's never too early or too late to learn something new. But I have no idea what I want to try that I haven't done already.
I know I haven't done everything. What do you ladies do "for you?"
