In July, I moved to a new house in a new neighbourhood and I love it.
I spent the first 32 years of my life in the same three block radius. I proclaimed myself to be a ‘lifer.’ I said I’d never move.
To put it delicately… events transpired.
Major life changes brought me to a new neighbourhood and… I’m in love.
I’m in love with my new place in this city, in love with walking around and exploring (either by myself, with a friend, or with my kids), and in love with the people and places I meet every day.
Some people need to travel the world in order to be happy. I don’t need that, nor do I want it. Granted, I’d like to do a bit of traveling, but I’m already happy.
I wake up every day and make a choice to love myself and love my life.
This blog is a chronicle of the beautiful people I meet up with during my daily journeys.
Some of the people I already know, some I’ve never seen before; maybe I’ll never see them again. But they are there, living their life. They all have a story and they inspire me.
I love all of Thunder Bay but I will be focusing on the North Side known as Port Arthur, particularly on the downtown area where I live and explore.
As I get more comfortable and confident, stretching beyond my comfort zone, you can expect to see greater diversity. In the meantime, please be patient with and understanding of my limitations.
I might just take your picture one day.
October 3rd is when it starts.
Check back here every Monday and Thursday to meet the people in my neighbourhood.
