Everyone has a mid life crisis ,that is for sure, one way or another
I guess you are a local. I was like you hopping from one continent to another for 25 years in electronic / manufacturing industry. First few years was great . Got to see so many countries with different background and cultures. Really see on the ground how these people lives their lifes Not the tour kind of thing where everything is artificially beautiful.
Then as years goes by I got sick of it. The minute I board the plane, I want to get out asap. No joy at all and very monotonous.
I lost the fire in my belly. Basically dragging my feet.
I decided to change my career but with so many commitment on hand it was a big challenge to make that change.
All my life I wanted to built my own home from scratch but in SG was too expensive and impractical. I scouted around the world and picked my spot. Change of country, residency, schooling for kids, culture blah blah... got me worried.
Then I waited and I waited and I waited. I was in two minds to let go what I had and to jump for something that was something unknown. What then after the house was my big question. I been busy all my life and worried I will not have anything to do after that.
I listed all the pros and cons and discussed with my wife and kids. Pu aside some saving for rainy days. After three years of procrastinating, I jumped on it. Took me 3 years to complete. It is not perfect but definitelty will hold during rainy days. Now I am almost half completing my Bsc . There are times where the financial insecurity kicks in
But hey, this is life, if you do not try you will never know. If you want everything to be perfect, you can never achieve that.
What is important that you must be happy with what you do and you have your family around you to support you. That is the most important thing. Never regret one bit
All of us lives our life only ONCE, if you did not go for it , years to come , dying by your bedside , you will regret for not giving it a shot.
Even if you fail at least you die trying. This is my best advise to you
Good Luck !!!
