There are many places in the United States I want to live.
But, "it ain't where, it's how you live."
Faking your environment is next to impossible. I think many people try to connect a specific place to the "how" they want to live for this reason.
But I also think we all owe it to ourselves to think in more specific terms about the environments we live in.
What is it specifically about a place that makes you want to live there?
Do you want more sunny days? How many sunny days do you want? What do you plan to do with those sunny days?
If the answer is spend your sunny days in a cubicle, you might just find it's not the sunny days you're after. You really might be after the activities you're missing out on.
What are those activities? How can you creatively reorganize your life to get engaged more often in those pursuits? In what ways can you pursue them where you are right now?
Do you want to be surrounded by more creative minds?
What topics are you interested in exploring? How are you planning to meet these people? What can you do where you are now to expose yourself to those interactions?
Maybe you want to live next to an ocean?
It's hard to fake an ocean. But what do you want to use the ocean for? Deep sea fishing? Surfing? Reading a book on the beach? The view from your apartment window? In what way might a lake might speak to your core interests?
Places all over the country have different weather, different cultures, different environments, different industries, and they attract flat out different people.
But most people will never see the environment for the abstract resources they provide.
It's up to you to define how you want to live. And it's up to you to utilize the resources around you to pursue that way of life, where ever you may be.
