Taking a Job for Less Money

So that's where I am at. I am thinking of applying for a job that I have a pretty good shot at, but it makes less than I make now. It's a large difference but I would be able to live on the income. Obviously not taking vacations or living extravagantly...but I'd be okay. The cost of living is really cheap in the area where the job is located.

There aren't really any raises or opportunities for a second job. It's a very depressed area.

The upside is it is something I've ALWAYS wanted to do, and you just cannot be in a place where the need for people to make a difference is any greater. I'm all about wanting to really make a difference in the world every single day, and I'm just not doing that here or now.

So...is this a terrible idea? Has anyone else done this? How did it work out??
