Warning: Puerto Vallarta Will Not Make You Happy

Being able to live in a beach town is the ultimate dream. Whether you are a millennial that wants to move and work abroad or if you are approaching retirement looking for a place to unwind in your golden years, being able to wake up and see the ocean is a dream for many.
Hillary and I have had the same dream. We worked very hard to make sure that we could live out our dream and making the jump to moving abroad is the best decision we have ever made.
While I believe that we our lives have improved since moving to Puerto Vallarta, I also believe that it is completely possible to achieve your dream, move abroad, and be massively unhappy.
The beach may make you happy in the short term, but it will not solve all of your “problems” or worries.
If you are always have a negative frame of mind, that will carry over to your new life abroad.
Old habits die hard.
Don’t wait until you finally move abroad to be happy, to feel good or successful. Many of the people I speak to that are planning on moving to Puerto Vallarta will not be here for at least a year.
It is perfectly normal and acceptable to look forward to your trip or your move abroad, but do not wait for your life to magically improve until moving day.
Live the best life that you can. Now.
Be the best person that you can be. Now.
I do not mean for this short note to come across as negative in any way. It is simply a warning sign.
If you are unhappy, Puerto Vallarta will not make you happy.
Only you can make you happy.
Thanks for taking the time to read this short thought. If you enjoyed it, let us know!
Keep it Kinetic,
Greg and Hillary Kennon
