    I understand the situation you're in, especially about where you live and the restrictions that it offers. We went through the same dilemma and here's the story http://www.daysstories.blogspot.com/...-decision.html

    Here is what I am trying to emphasize. There are always pros and cons - two sides to a coin. Only you can decide for yourself. But the lesson here is this - whatever decision you choose, focus on why you chose that decision. Don't live in regrets by focusing on why you should have chosen what you did not choose. Who knows, someday, you might be able to enjoy both - what you, for some reason, missed or skipped and what you earlier chose to enjoy.
    Thanks Maam Harvey for continuing what Sir Leandres has started. Thanks for accommodating the questions and for sharing an inspirational story.

    Mrs. Harvey, as always, I am very thankful to your advice. You are one of the few who does not fail to inspire other people.

    You are right. In the end, everything depends on what decision I will make and I can only know what's there if I act on it. That makes me even more inspired and excited. Looking forward and seeing myself doing business on Photography excites me. Very soon I'll be following the footsteps you and your husband took.

    Thank you.
