If one advances confidently in the direction of one's dreams, and endeavours to live the life which one has imagined, one will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
Henry David Thoreau
It could be friends or family members. At the end of the day it is your life to live.
Whether it's downsizing your home, becoming more self reliant, trying new experiences. What ever the obstacles you can over come them.
For those that can't or won't understand your plans for the future just stop telling them about it and get into living it.
Share your excitement and dreams with those that are like minded.
Just remember IT'S YOUR LIFE...GO LIVE IT
