I'm turning 55 this year and I feel exactly the same way - Work is taking up my whole life, and want to enjoy some of it while we still have good health.
Have had a few friends and co-workers with tragic health issues - Bad news could only be one Dr's appointment (or emergency visit) away. Yes sometimes the things you love doing take extra effort or slap you with excessive financial burden, but if it brings you pleasure and happiness it is worth it.
I just had to replace my transmission in my class A - Sure it hurt the bank acct, but it won't stop me from enjoying our outings. When things go south, I think of it as a challenge to over come and prevail.
We can always make more money, but we can't make more time - Enjoy what you have left.
