Welcome to the Board. There's a LOT to explore and to learn in the Buddhist world. It's good you have a positive attitude; that's where you have to start.
Tell me: roughly where in the world are you? I'm asking so that we can help you find resources, teachers, communities, temples and so on. that's really the best way to learn, to see it first hand and participate as best you can.
All the best,
