I've thought about that but the things I enjoy would bring in WAY less money than what I make now. I keep telling myself that part doesn't/shouldn't matter but it's hard to voluntarily take a huge step back in income. And if the new thing doesn't work out, I think it would be hard to re-enter my current field, especially at the same salary. While I know I could live on much less than I currently make, there's a difference between living on less due to necessity vs living on less because you're saving a bunch for retirement.

It sounds like you are in golden handcuffs -- so am I. So you want to do something about it, but don't want to change anything? I am curious what others will have to say because I am in a very similar situation.
