My opinion, only you can answer your question. You have to be true to yourself and what you want out of life, versus what society, family, friends, think you ought to do. I spent many years in corporate america, owned a couple of businesses, and two homes. I was only ever really happy on my limited time off doing what I do now full-time. I don't miss cleaning rooms I never used, 6 day work weeks, or car payments. I had the money to travel, but only could get away long weekends. Now, my cars a little older, I cook my steak and crab legs myself and buy $7 wine and it's the PERFECT life for me. My family however, thinks I've gone insane.... so, be true to yourself, you only get one turn at this. At your age and family situation, you have the time and flexibility to figure what that is out, you just have to go after it.
