Farewell to Nova Scotia.....

Farewell to Nova Scotia - Sons of Maxwell

So the time has come to say farewell, au revoir, adios....well you get my drift.  Farewell to Nova Scotia.  For the meantime at least.  Not to say that I will never return, but it is time for a change.  A lot has transpired in the last year and few months.  It's amazing how a year can change your perspective on life.  This time last year, well things weren't looking so bright.  But that't the past.  Let's talk about now and the future.

I believe I am destined for great things.  I'm not talking about winning the Nobel Peace Prize for my research on the effects of the full moon which produce strange effects such as the Crocodile Death Spin, causing bouts of sleeplessness, rampant house cleaning binges, and other such phenomenon.  I am talking about doing something meaningful each day, something that affirms why I was brought into this world, something that I can honestly say I love.

Living in small town Antigonish, albeit a wonderful, safe place to live, is missing something for me.  I will miss the late night walks in town, early morning trips to the Landing, seeing familiar faces and the sights and sounds of the Highland Heart.  But I will make new friends, new memories, see new places and experience new things. We have "One Life" and I am going to try and make the rest of mine the best it can possibly be.

I have finally started to take control of my life and put myself first - a concept that was always foreign to me.  I am getting in shape, learning how to fuel my body, and regaining my self confidence.  All I can say, is Alberta better watch out....Hurricane Wan is on the way....


  1. As you enter this new phase of your life Wanda, I wish you love and laughter; two of the things you are so good at.
    I am blessed to have become your friend over the past year. You helped me through a very troubling time in my life and I honestly don't know what I'm going to do without you. Whenever you're around, I have a smile on my face and a song in my heart. You have brightened my days and made my husband blush!!!
    Our Carma events will definitely not be the same without you. You are an energizing force with loads of exuberance and a million megawatt smile.
    You are a part of my heart that I will always cherish and I will miss you so much.
    Promise you will keep in touch and that we'll never lose the connection we've achieved over this past 12 months.
    I will not say good-bye. I will say 'til we meet again sweet angel!
    I love ya Wandie!!

  2. As a present inhabitant of Alberta ...and a permanent DOWN HOME Nova Scotia girl: I welcome you with open arms and a huge smile. Any time you feel the urge to visit my fair city let me know... would love to hook up and do things! Blessings on the next leg of your journey ! xo

  3. Wanda, you are such an inspiring person and what NS is losing is definitely AB gain! I wish you the best of luck in all that you do. Be happy girl because you deserve it!!!!!!

  4. waiting with open arms for you little sister

  5. Wanda, I wanted to tell you that I hope you are doing good. Watching you losing weight on Facebook sort of inspired me to start my own journey. I wish you success in your new path in life.
