I finally have my act together, on a very basic level. What are the next steps to becoming a full-fledged adult?

I am 33. Most of my "adulthood" thus far has been spent being out and out homeless, couch surfing and renting bedrooms off of Craigslist. I have worked hard in the past 2 years to:
-have a healthy, functional romantic relationship
-a full-time job that is career material
-a modest apartment in a good neighborhood
-several healthy, functional friendships
-pay my rent and bills on time; always have money for healthy food
-improving relationships in my family
What's next? What are the basic, babiest of steps to start moving toward a solid middle class lifestyle, developing hobbies (that do not involve alcohol) and fostering better relationships with people in my life? Did anyone ever slowly move from poverty and survival mode to a comfortable life?
