Education is important to everyone, its key to your self-confidence, to becoming a strong and resilient individual, but that doesn't necessarily mean formal education.  Life is an education, you can learn alot from other people, from nature, from non-formal sources such as documentaries and books, but in order to access and embrace these forms of education you need the basics of literacy - with that you can go far.  I came to formal education later in life and I have to say, I'm glad, I value my education more now than I would have done if straight from school; I don't think I would have been able to achieve what I have without taking time out from formal education to experience life through work, to find out who I am, and what I truly wanted to learn.  I admire those who have always known what they wanted to do and have dedicated their lives to achieving that goal, but I also recognise the importance of coming to education later on, to the sense of worth and accomplishment from dedicating your self to something you have finally chosen to learn - NEVER let anyone tell you that you can't do it, no matter what stage you are in life, you can always benefit from education

I couldnt agree more, life is about learning and perseverence! Live your life, learn from your mistakes, but keep moving forward. We struggledwhen we are stagnant, but if we continue to learn and improve, regardless of where we are in life, things are always moving in the right direction.

Exactly, eloquently put my friend, as always. Many thanks for your support and your comment - and lets keep moving forward, gaining life experiences together!! x
