I play in a community orchestra and help out a lot with the youth orchestra that my kids are in. I spend time with my mom--my dad died a year ago, so I make it a priority to be there for her. DH works long hours and travels so I make sure errand-y/house things get done so our family time is completely free. It took some work to get to a place where I felt intellectually stimulated and personally fulfilled, but I'm pretty much there.
