I would imagine that those of you who follow Fresh-Season.com regularly are a little confused as to why I suddenly moved back to Newfoundland. I know it seems a little crazy– to be living in Ottawa (a city that I absolutely love!) for three years, then to hop on over to Toronto for just eight months, then back to my home province. Well, there are several reasons.
Sometimes, I regret moving from Ottawa to Toronto. I love everything about Ottawa, and I consider it my second home. Everything about the city is beautiful, I love the atmosphere, and met so many great people.
But I moved to Toronto, because I felt that maybe there was more opportunity there (in regards to job prospects). I thought that I needed a change of scenery, as things were a little difficult in the first half of 2013. New city, new start right?
Well, the fact is… I hated Toronto. Sure, the shopping is great– but it just didn’t work. I didn’t fall in love with the city. Instead, I hated it. On top of my hatred for Toronto, my dad had a bad fall and my grandmother passed away. And to be completely honest, Ken and I were drifting apart; so we both decided it was best to end things.
There are a few reasons why I moved back to Newfoundland; But most importantly, I moved back to work on myself. To live independently, to find a balance in my life, and to get things back on track. It’s a huge change, and it comes with so many challenges– but I’m positive that this is exactly what I need. Unfortunately, my beloved boxers (Pepper and Rocco) are not with me (and I miss them dearly), but will hopefully be shipped down next month.
So here’s to big big changes!
