Although I have not found myself in the same position as both you and Cindi have I completely understand the message and the ability as Cindi put it...to find yourself in a company where your independence and entrepreneurial spirit are applauded.
My comment mostly is going to come from your comment about finding a team environment that champions your fine Indie self....
I find I am sitting on the other side of this issue in a way. We just hired someone like that today for our company and your words are basically her words to us. There is something refreshing about being part of a team that can work together, bounce ideas off of and be creative with, especially when you have been doing everything by yourself for so long. It's re-energizing and that alone can give you enough oomph to jump the hurdles that might have been holding you back.
I do think people need to take inventory of their situations on a regular basis. As creatures of habit it is sometimes too easy for us to get stuck in a rut (of any kind) and not realize that there might be a better way for us than the one we are on. Of course, sometimes it just means doing what Greg said and setting limits and respecting those boundaries so your life is full of the right things.
On a personal note: I'm so glad that you have found what you needed, what you were looking for and are happy with the move you have made. It's going to bring wonderful things into your life.
