I'm 25 yrs old, have a great job where I'm very successful, earn lots of money and in turn reap the benefits. In addition, I've been a bass player for 14 yrs. I've studied, giged, traveled with the band (no longer together), had too much fun and have stories for the grandkids. Recently I have had the chance to join a VERY promising band, with fantastic players, but would have to commit myself to travel and ultimately a life change. I am engaged to an incredibly beautiful woman (also a bass player), who I've lived with for 8yrs. She is supportive and understanding in all my decisions, but relies on our secure lifestyle. In my heart I want to play music professionaly, but doing so will jeopardize our contentment/comfort. We have bills to pay, pets to feed, responsibilities just as anyone would. By committing to this life change I have doubt where as I'll be able to fulfill the responsibilities I've created for myself.... at least for a while. I'll have to decide by the summer/July and I just can't see how I'll be able to make this decision. I'm losing sleep on this every night and haven't really discussed this in depth with the Mrs. I know she'll stand by me, no question there. My life has gone one way for so long and now I'm at a cross road. I realize this is a bit heavy, but I'd like to hear your opinions. What would you do?
