Beyond Greens: Coming Home


One year ago today, I moved back to my home province of Quebec after living in Toronto for 10 years. I remember the long drive vividly, and all the emotions I felt that day. There was excitement and relief of finally coming home to my family, but there was also sadness and apprehension. Most of all, I deeply regretted that I didn’t do this when my mom was still with us, and that led to quite a few tears.

For many years, I wondered if I could ever come back. The timing never felt right, and just thinking about it overwhelmed me. Then one day, I took a step forward. I applied for a job in Montreal and I got it. A few weeks later, I packed up and I left. In retrospect, I guess it wasn’t that hard. Sometimes, the biggest obstacle in your life is yourself.

I will always have fond memories of my years in Toronto. But Montreal has got my heart.

And you, when are you going home?

    "And you, when are you going home?"
    I just went "home" to find out my home is where is my heart and LOVE…MY HOME is HERE.
