Sedona, Arizona

Sedona isn’t just a “Top Location,” it is my all time favorite place on earth. Sure there are breathtaking views, spiritual vortex spots and perfect Arizona weather, but that’s not what has made this place hold so much value to me.

Sedona, has become a very sentimental location for me. It accidentally turned into where I go during major milestone in my life. I first stopped here on my road trip to move to California. This was huge for me. I dreamed of moving to LA since I was very young and here I was, 23 years old, finally doing it. I was lucky enough to take a day during my journey to spend at this magical place and instantly fell in love. The love affair continued when I was in a not so great place in my life. My girlfriend of three and a half years and I broke up officially the day before I left and I was feeling completely lost. Confused about every direction and decision in my life, the next 3 days in Sedona, spent with my parents, provided peace, solitude and general acceptance for where I was currently in my life.

I came back to LA feeling reborn and with a completely new outlook on life and adversity. Nature has since become a reminder to me that as humans, we are small fragments of what make up this beautiful Earth and our problems are virtually meaningless. I’m aware that this sounds incredible harsh but give me a minute to explain! It’s easy to get caught up in the trials life throws at us. Sometimes it feels as if we have hit rock bottom and there is no way to get back up. Being reminded of how small we are can put into perspective the relativity of our problems and give your mind the relief and comfort to see the insignificance in comparison to the big picture. This provides a sense of calm and ease in order to tackle what is thrown at us with a clear head.

I will forever feel indebted to this stunning land.

Thank you, Sedona.

    It’s always good to have something that anchors us and brings our feet back to the ground. Sounds like Sedona does this for you 🙂

    Hi cammie,
    What you’re saying here ^ I have that feeling with a place too. I live in The Netherlands and there you have incredibly beautiful dunes. I guess you will know that because it’s very important for my country and we’re the only country who have that kind of dunes right? But the dunes are very important to me because when I walk there it gives me a comfortable feeling and I really need that sometimes when i’m stresst or unhappy. I’m so happy to see that you also have that! That i’m not the only one! Thanks so much for learning me these life lessons I really need. I’m so proud of you cammie and I will always support you. We really need more people like you in this world ❤

    This post is by far my most favorite one yet. I love the inspiring outlook you give to nature. By using it to rebuild yourself and see the beautiful side of life. In this post it’s clear to see that you now understand that there will be terrible times and that things happen that you never thought would. You’re truly inspiring for all your strength you portray. Please post more like this with helpful upliftings. Love you Cam.!

    Love this post sooooo much. I feel like when you’re out in nature every a single negative feeling just goes away! I recently visited a place called Ilkley Moor just outside of Leeds and I had a similar feeling (although it definitely doesn’t compare to Sedona I’m sure lmao) but you should definitely go if you have chance next time you’re in England!

    Keep writing, you’re doing great! Looking forward to more posts.

    Xoxo

    This has to be my favorite blog post. For me personally, it’s the most relatable post. I’ve always had this reassuring feeling whenever I just go on a run or walk alone. Being outside and letting every thought slip my mind just frees me. I’ve always loved being outside and just taking in all the beauty that’s in this world.

    Haven’t found my place like you have have found yours. At the same time I haven’t really needed to have that one place that just brings me happiness, so I guess that is a good thing for me.

    My country is dawn now. I got up because I wanted to write. 😉 I love all your posts. In particular, this posting is a great consolation to me. I’m having a little bit of trouble in my life now. So I want to overcome this things and want to feel comfortable in this beautiful place as like you. I also like so much ‘Before you die’. Its perfect. Video editing is perfect. Video, music, comment, voice… So good. Thanks for all the postings you’ve made. Love cam.

    Hi cammie! I’ve been following you for years now and particularly loved your Sedona posts and videos. I’m travelling from Ireland to California and Las Vegas this summer for three weeks and I’m thinking of including it in my route. It looks stunning. I’m loving your blog as I knew I would. Keep spreading the love!

    Hi Cammie. Just watched your Q+A video you just posted on youtube. You said that for entering into your competition you should comment on your favourite In Full Bloom blog post…so here I am. This is actually the second time I have commented on this blog but it’s my favourite. Like I said, because of you I am now wanting to visit here this summer.
    Good luck with everything and perhaps I will be the winner of that gorgeous giveaway!! #Happy Sunday

    This was just what I needed today. I’m getting ready to make some pretty big changes in my life. Sedona is one of my favorite places in the world. It’s only a 3 hour drive for me so maybe I will make a trip up there.

    I remember when the Sedona vlog came out and it’s up there with my favourite YouTube videos ever. The message in it is so powerful. It’s true that we are the source of our own happiness. This is my favourite blog so far (they’re all hunreal) because it just reminds me of that video and also reminds me happiness can always be found within yourself. I love you so much cam and all the effort you put into your job and the positivity and happiness it spreads. Keep doing what your doing, keep being you and never stop blooming x twitter @katentil

    Your Sedona youtube video is one of my favorite video of all time, I still watch it sometimes and even downloaded it and put the audio in my phone to listen to it when I feel like it. So it’s no really a surprise that this is my fave blog so far. I guess I just want to thank you for making these.

    For sure this is my favourite post in here, cuz of the magical place you were and i hope one day i will visit it and cuz the message that is hidden in it. We all have that moment in life when we fell lost and we don’t find the reason why we live our lives in this way and we need smth to came up with the solution. And after reading this and watching the vlog i was so impressed and realy started thing of this question…am i happy living my life it this way..does that make my happy? And i started searching for the answer and i realised that the change is the right answer for me. Thank you Cammie for inspiring us and giving us the chance to be here for in your life journey by sharing it with us. Love so much and just keep doing this you angel.

    This is my favorite post of yours so far. I’ve always wanted to travel to so many places, and after “visiting” Sedona vicariously through you, it’s made it to the top 5 of my bucket list. It’s absolutely beautiful, and I love that you have brought the joy and beauty of it to your viewer’s. Thank you for inspiring not only myself, but my girlfriend and so many others with your carefree and loving nature. All the happiness and love to you.

    I absolutely adore this post.
    Sedona is on my bucket list and always has been, being 16 is such a frustrating age as you’re literally so close but far away to being able to do what you’ve always wanted but this just makes me believe that things like this are so worth the wait.
    I still need to find my ‘happy place’ but it looks like Sedona kept you grounded in some pretty rough times and I guess thats what everyone needs.
    Your blogs never fails to give me a different perspective on life and for that I am forever grateful.
    Much love to you Cammie, you’re amazing x

    I love the second paragraph… It is just so true and you putting it in such nice words makes me feel a lot better. I absolutely adored your Sedona Vlog about a few months ago and ever since then I’m actaully wishing to go there at one point of my life! I think it’s great to have that one place that makes your problems from the “real world” look small for a bit and to just enjoy and savor the moment you’re in at the moment… there’s so much hate and so many problems in this world, so having a place to escape to is a blessing and shouldn’t be undervalued!

    Ah, I just love how one place can make somebody feel so calm and relaxed! I cannot wait until the day where I stumble across a location which I feel attached to from that point onwards. Living in Cornwall in the U.K. I’ve definintely found places that come close, particularly hidden woodland areas and secluded beaches with secret eateries tucked away along peninsulas, but there’s so much of the world left for me to explore so I know there will be more locations to come which I’ll become fixated on. Also, I totally understand where you’re coming from with the almost insignificance of our problems, particularly when they’re short term and especially when they’re fixable! Every time I visit a new place, although I already know it, it’s as if I have another realisation that the world is so much bigger than our sometimes sheltered lives and it gives me a bit of strength to push through whatever it is I’m going through!
    I’m absolutely loving your blog posts and I hope you’re having a good day, Cammie! x

    Nature is something that I tend to appreciate yet under appreciate at the same time. When I’m outiside, I feel at peace. Having the sun on my skin and feeling the breeze and taking in the smell of the air. I forget that nature is an easy stress reliever for me. I’m glad sendona and the nature within it was there for you when you needed it most. I love this post a lot. Thanks for sharing 💛
