Need Advice..or a Kick in the Pants!

I'm looking everywhere for advice and hope I can find help here. Let me explain. When I was much younger I knew the career path I wanted to take involving music, writing and art. I had brief, local success singing at a few places then I met the man of my dreams and gave it up to be a wife and stay at home mom.
Fast forward 30 odd years and I have a healthy, loving marriage, my children are living their own lives and I have a good life, but I feel like somethings missing. I've lost a little of "ME" along the way and I don't know how to get it back. DH gave me a guitar for my birthday (I have not played in years) and my first thought was "what a silly gift for a woman my age" but my next thought was "he knows me really well" because holding that guitar felt like holding an old friend.
This gift has brought back all those old dreams of singing, writing, painting. Obviously, I'm too old (and frankly too tired!LOL) to take the music world by storm, but I have begun to consider song-writing, writing, etc, but I have that nagging little voice saying "You are too old", "You will look like an old fool and be a laughing stock"!
I really need advice, a shoulder to cry on...or maybe a kick in the pants..I know there is a new chapter to my life and I don't know what to do with it..............
Thanks for "listening!"
