I was born and raised in a quiet small town called Bowmanville about 1 1/2 hours east of Toronto. Everyone knew everyone...and I hated it! When it was time for me to attend university, I could not wait to escape a small town and go to the big city. For this reason alone, I attended University of Toronto. How I loved being lost in all the millions of people where no one knew who I was, the hussle and bustle of a busy city, the rush of the subway. I loved it!
Fast forward 30 years and here I am living in another small town, beautiful Vernon BC. This week I am back in Toronto at the Century 21 Canadian conference. Toronto is still a very busy city (obviously busier than when I lived here), there are millions of people trying to get on with their day running to catch the subway and getting lost here is pretty darn easy!
How things change! I can't wait to get home to my quiet little town where my coffee shop knows me by name and it only takes 10 minutes to get anywhere in town. The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. We always want what we don't have but sometimes we end up exactly where we are suppose to be!!!
