Career changes

So has anyone made any drastic career changes after doing something a few years? I'm 46 and have been doing graphic design since I was 21. It was that or be a police officer. I still like art but want to do it as a hobby with my deadlines - no one else's. I'm pretty tired of it. My career interests are now in personal fitness training and home remodeling/repair. How's that for diversity? They're just dreams right now but I'm really kicking around the idea of a change. The only thing that keeps me going now is the salary and benefits. Any career changers out there? How did you do it?

Life's too short to spend 1/4 of your time doing something you don't like. I would start checking into how to make money doing something you enjoy.
