Life is short compare with eternity. If life is short, why we don't do all things we want to do? Most people say "when I have time, I am going to this or do that". What are you waiting for? getting old and then say "I am old" and use that as excuse? No way. If you are not happy now with who you are or what are you doing, stop and think in all those things that make you happy. After that, think how can you get what you want and create a plan to get it. Remember, nothing is impossible, the sky's the limit.
And... please don't think what others are going to think about your new plan. This just matter to you and your happiness. It is all about you and being happy. When you do something with your heart, you get it and you are successful. You have to know that it is not about magic, you have to work for it, put a lot of energy and have positive attitude. When we really want to do what we love, evreything is possible and the satisfaction of getting it is invaluable.
Have a good day, and put your hand on that what you want. Good luck :)
