I say go for it. Life is too precious and short to prevaricate. It's sometimes very cathartic to leave the past behind and make a fresh start. If it will ease the financial pressure too that's got to be good and you can take most of your (potted) garden with you! It sounds like you are ready to start a new phase in your life and if you have an opportunity to do something positive then grab it with both hands. Yay - how excitement.
