Too short to do everything, long enough to do a few things very well. Family, friends and your own health are the most important. But so is self-development and knowing the world you live in. There are those like myself whose hearts beat faster when they think of travel. Getting restless in an office and just wanting out. For me, living abroad is the middle way. But for some, they never go out. Not even half. Yes, two weeks a year to the coast. But not deep into the countries, finding work as they go. Not meeting the people, not getting invited somewhere for tea. But when the travel bug itches, you know it deep down. And you cannot stay. You must go, no matter what. Or you'll live with regrets. So go, even go half by living abroad. But hit the road, because that's the only way humanity has ever gotten to know their neighbors and the world most people are afraid of - or make excuses for not to go see.
