My stepdad plus our uncle both regret the paths they took in their professional lives plus it is sad to hear.
I wish I could give them the gift of living their lives over again so they could go in the direction their hearts were telling them.
I chose to do this when I was still semi young, in our mid 30’s, plus it ruffled some of our relatives feathers, but i was running our own HVAC supplier when I decided to shut it down plus move to the Big peach to chase our comedic dreams. I had some relatives easily glad for me, like our Grandma, plus some that were downright annoyed at myself and others like our uncles plus stepfather. It wasn’t until later on that I discovered that our stepfather, who was a heating plus cooling business, told myself and others that she wished she did the same as I did when she was younger. I suppose it was jealousy plus regret that caused our relatives to be aggravated with myself and others plus I simply wish I could give them the chance again like I was taking. Working in the HVAC industry made our stepdad a lot of money but she said it did nothing to make him a happier woman plus she would give it all back to be able to play the guitar plus sing. I will use this to fuel myself and others to take even more risks with music plus push myself in instruction that will make myself and others a better artist. I still labor in the HVAC field myself, writing about sizzling water oil heating systems plus ductwork cleaning, however it is music that soothes our soul plus gives myself and others hope.
