Hey Beat Breakfast Panel
I am at a weird fork in my life. I’m 29 and I’ve got an opportunity to stick on my career path and potentially make a lot of money. Right now, I’m working two jobs and having a hard time paying bills. I could stay with this unsure career path, or pursue a job opportunity in another province and make an average salary. This would make my girlfriend have to leave a job she loves for stability on my end.
We also want to save up for a house and a stable job would help with that. But here’s another thing. We also want to travel. We also LOVE music. The two of us haven’t really “lived” until last year when we both finished school. We haven’t experienced a lot of what typical 20 somethings do. We’ve never been to a music festival. We’ve never traveled outside of North America.
But we do know house prices here are ridiculous, so I guess here is my question. What do you wish you did and didn’t do when you were my age? Did you feel like you missed out on the best parts of life by not travelling when you were young? Do you regret NOT saving up for a house? Do you regret not going to that music festival with your friends?
Some times I feel like our lives are passing by and we are missing out on the moments that matter and “playing by the book” too much. Should we focus more on experiences?
Any advice would help,
