stop looking at other peoples lists! Look at yourself. What do you love? that's all that counts, even if you think that *you* can't do it, even if you think it needs a degree, whatever.
You need to go back, take back the thing you love, that all the sensible, reasonable, safe approach to life took away from you, go find it again, get it back, hold on to it and start doing it now. You won't be able to start at the top - you might not be able to quit your day job right away, but the only thing that counts is your heart and what makes you HAPPY to do. You are a 4!!
There is a book called "Its only too late if you don't start now" by Barbera Sher. Its all about clearing the junk and the resistance away & sustaining doing the thing you need to do, the thing you should have done all along, but the safe choices, family etc got in the way.
