Exploring the Underrated Beauty of Newfoundland and Labrador

Join me as I share my love of the breathtaking beauty of Newfoundland and Labrador. From serene landscapes to welcoming communities, this breathtaking province offers a haven for gratitude, mindfulness, and personal growth. I came home and will forever be grateful it is here for me.

With a heart filled with gratitude and a love for life, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery and personal growth that led me home in 2020, to the extraordinary province of Newfoundland and Labrador, where I grew up. Here in this breathtaking corner of Canada, I found more than just picturesque landscapes, but also a renewed peace of mind and a deep sense of appreciation for the beauty of my surroundings. I live in awe of my surroundings every day!

My name is Stella Reddy, and my life took an unexpected turn when I became a victim of cyberbullying in 2016. Toxic tenants from my last place of work launched a smear campaign against me, using manipulative tactics such as gaslighting, triangulation, and false allegations that truly scared me. As I navigated the tumultuous waters of recovering my mental health, I realized that finding solace and beauty in nature in my home Province would become my pathway to healing. I was right!

Nestled on the eastern coast of Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador is a hidden gem, beckoning seekers of serenity and tranquillity. As I made my way around this vividly diverse province, I soon discovered the power of mindfulness and the profound impact it has on my well-being.

The moment I set foot on the breathtaking landscapes of Newfoundland and Labrador, a sense of peace washed over me. I even had to pull over, I was crying so much in relief after I got off the Ferry that day! The raw and unspoiled nature that surrounds me invites introspection and ignites my love for life anew. I feel whole here.

Hiking along the East Coast Trail, the refreshing breeze kissed my cheeks, allowing me to pause and soak in the picturesque views of towering cliffs and crashing waves below. Each step brought me closer to a deeper understanding of my journey and the resilience within me. The trail, like life itself, presented obstacles, yet those challenges only served to strengthen my resolve and deepen my connection with nature. I found my sense of self again by living here.

One of the incredible aspects of Newfoundland and Labrador is the warmth and hospitality of its people. The locals, known for genuine kindness, opened their arms and hearts to me. Through conversations with fellow Newfies, I discovered that true growth often arises from the relationships we forge and the connections we make.

Every small town and hidden harbour in Newfoundland and Labrador has a story to share. The vibrant colours of the coastal homes, the lively sound of traditional music, and the scent of freshly caught seafood all contribute to the tapestry of this mesmerizing province. Newfoundlanders and Labranorian’s resilience and unwavering love for their homeland inspired me to embrace my growth journey.

The power of Newfoundland and Labrador became increasingly evident as I re-explored my community. The captivating culture of St. John’s awakened a deep sense of awe within me. In these moments of stillness and appreciation, I discovered personal growth and the beauty of embracing life’s unexpected twists and turns. I came to accept that in the scheme of things, my issues over being bullied are minor and not worth the energy I gave it.

Amid my encounters with cyberbullying and the toxicity of false allegations, Newfoundland and Labrador provided a sanctuary where I can reflect, heal, and nourish my soul. Its untouched nature became a canvas upon which I could reimagine my own life story, transforming the enormous pain I felt into strength and resilience.

As I conclude my personal story back home to Newfoundland and Labrador, I cannot help but be overwhelmed with gratitude for the serenity and solace I found in this truly unique Province. Beyond the captivating landscapes and warm hospitality lies an invitation to reconnect with oneself and find beauty even in the darkest of adversities.

May you too find solace, growth, and a renewed love for life, no matter where you are. I now embrace the peace of mind that mindfulness and personal growth are bringing, leaving behind the shadows of cyberbullying and toxic traits. I will continue to celebrate the astounding beauty that this province has to offer, capturing the essence of Newfoundland and Labrador in my heart forever. I LOVE where I live! I am home.

  1. Looks like such a beautiful and calming place! I actually almost ended up there when I was applying for universities in Canada but in the end I decided to go to one in Ontario.

    1. Hi Pooja! NL is one of the more attractive Provinces, especially with its scenery, slower pace, and sense of Community. The entire Province holds just over five hundred thousand people spread out in various Communities. Where I live is the biggest City, with just over two hundred thousand people. It is way different living here than in Ontario!
