How to come to terms with huge life decision?

The decision has been made, the pros and cons weighed. For one of the first and only times in my life I followed my gut. Why does it still feel yucky?

I am deciding to take a job that is a good opportunity in an area we've always talked about living in that is close to good friends and family. I am seriously mourning what I'm leaving behind, in particular a best friend who lives a few blocks away, in addition to some feelings of giving up on certain dreams and hopes in exchange for officially "settling down". I thought I would have more time before a move, but some pressures are building and good opportinities in the new area are rare. Would love advice from anyone who's been here before. All my mefi questions seem to be about these types of big life decisions, but now it's for real. My heart is broken but I know it's the right decision.
