I live in a place that feels like a constant vacation. The sun is always shining, it’s always warm, there’s palm trees everywhere, and the people of Austin just have that laid back vibe. It’s the type of environment I thrive in. Living in a city like Chicago, where everyone lives off of high stress, and a fast-paced environment, makes me depressed (not to mention the bitterly cold temperatures, but that’s another story).
Every year of my childhood, we always went down to the super cute small beach town of Venice, Florida. My grandparents had a house down there, and literally the best memories I have growing up were spent at that house. You could have told me that town was actually Heaven, and I would have believed you. From then on, I told myself that one day, I will live in a place with year-round warm weather, and palm tress. Last year, I finally made that happen, and Austin is my adult version of Heaven.
I encourage you to move to/live in a place that you truly thrive in. Think about your favorite type of weather, how fast or slow-paced the town is. Do you prefer wide open spaces, or the hustle and bustle of a city? What type of people do you vibe best with? Whatever those answers are, find that place and move there. And in my opinion, it should def be somewhere with palm trees (but that’s only my opinion).
