You might rent an apartment in a big city and you love it, but that doesn't bar you from imagining yourself in all sorts of alternate timelines. Maybe there's one where you're living abroad, one where you're living in a tiny little town in the middle of nowhere, one living on a your own private island — big and small, you've entertained thoughts about all of them.
