Where Should I Live?

IMG_1987

Wife and I are always goofing around on facebook – checking the latest newsfeed, playing games, etc. It’s a way that we chillax. People will frequently post links to interesting little survey things – one being FindYourSpot.com – and I will partake. I took the FindYourSpot quiz, which assesses a person’s lifestyle and suggests some top spots where someone might enjoy living. I took the survey and had no huge surprises; my tops were the pacific northwest, the rockies, and Asheville, NC. Duh. I could have told ya that.

However, I think this test is somewhat wrong.

It’s not wrong on the assessment part. I feel it’s wrong on the principle. If we are really leaders, influencers, and people who create our own destinies, does it really matter that much where we live? I like to think that I could move to Atlanta tomorrow (a spot definitely not on my list of results) and find total happiness- based upon my attitude, my outlook, and my ability to shape my surroundings. Sure, it’s nice having mountains, snow, and outdoor opportunities, but isn’t a person’s own attitude and outlook infinitely more important than extrinsic factors?

    I dunno… try moving to the north pole and see how happy you are. I was living in Michigan and wanted to live in a warmer place, that I could afford, that offered wildlife photography opportunities. I used findyourspot.com to narrow down a few places to research. It worked for me.
