Thanks for the answers guys.
I waited 31 years before I started doing what I love, which is writing. So as a 31 year old, I'm happier than I've ever been and it has made a difference to every area of my life, my career as a Teacher, love-life, family life, friendships and overall optimism levels.
I don't regret having waited so long. Regret is a useless feeling as are sentences like "should have, could have, would have etc.
I've started late, and that only means I get to enjoy my process of growing as a writer, and I have accumulated 31 years of experience which will serve me well in my writing endeavors.
By the way, I also love teaching, it just took me a few years to realize it!
