Single Mom Of Three And I Feel I Can't Move Forward

I never thought I would be in this situation. I am sure this is something most single mothers say. I know I am luckier than most, I have a good job that pays the bills, my kids are happy, and I am about to purchase my home. However my job is not what I want to be doing. I am a teacher at heart. I also hate living in southern california. I want to live somewhere that is much more family oriented and has trees and lakes. What keeps me here is my family. We are all very close, but I really think I am doing a disservice to my kids staying here. What is difficult is taking that risk by getting back into teaching taking that huge paycut and leaving the stability of the job I have had for 6 years. My heart wants out, but my brain is keeping me stuck. I have no one to talk to about this. My kids father hasn't been in there lives since we were married and that was 5 years ago. I don't want to date but I really need a friend. I am incredibly sad and feel like there is nothing I can do.
