Inspirational Blog: Introducing Girl From Peel

Updated: Aug 18, 2023

Welcome to Girl From Peel! I'm really excited to share my thoughts with you in this space. Now, some of you may be wondering about the name of this blog. I mean, I would be too if it weren't my own.


Peel, as in, peeling an apple? Or maybe a banana peel? What exactly is Peel?


Peel Region is located in good ol' Ontario, Canada, and it's where I grew up. And although I've always had a passion for writing, I've always struggled with naming characters and places. It can be a real roadblock for me sometimes...to the point where I even had to ask a coworker to help me name my dog.


True story.


So Girl From Peel seems rather straightforward to me. Not to mention, I recall many conversations with a friend referencing myself as a "random girl from Peel." But that's another story.


Now, those who know me would acknowledge that I have a tendency to be quite vocal when discussing a subject that I feel strongly about. Like the fact that although I can live without coffee, why would I? That French Vanilla ice cream is on the top 3 of best ice creams ever.


And that if I had to choose, I'd lift weights over cardio any day of the week.


I believe this trait originated from my childhood. Being the youngest, I had that wish to be noticed by my older siblings. Even now, I occasionally feel the need to raise my voice (just slightly) just to make sure my views are acknowledged 😄. On the other hand, sometimes I choose to remain silent as I question the value of expressing my opinion.


Introvert has entered the chat.



Please note, above picture is not me. Remember...introvert. I'm more of a behind the scenes type of individual.


Writing has always been a way for me to let my mind wander and express myself through storytelling. However, I feel like I now have permanent writer's block, and the desire to write fiction has vanished. I spoke with a friend about this after realizing that I used writing in the past as a form of escapism. It was a way to immerse myself in a new story or fantasy world, even if just for a little while.


Life is far from perfect at present, but I don't feel the need to escape anymore. In fact, I find pleasure in confronting life head-on because I am in control of my own decisions. Plus it's extremely important to be grateful for the things and people (and pets) we have in this world, and it makes life a whole lot better when you focus on the good stuff.

Through this blog, I hope to spread positivity and authenticity and maybe even bring a smile to your face with a little inspiration. I'll be sharing personal experiences, reflections on life, along with some excerpts from my stories from time to timemaybe. My goal is to create a safe and welcoming space for us to connect and grow together. And let me tell you, I'm thrilled to have this platform to express myself creatively.


I would be grateful if you could take a moment to leave a comment or subscribe to my blog. Your support means the world to me, and I can't wait to embark on this journey with you.


Thank you for joining me, and I wish you a blessed day!
