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.
