Last weekend, I went on an adventure and explored Phoenix and Sedona.

As some of you may know, I’ve been going through a lot of issues, including issues with my health and work, which has made it tough to stay positive. For the past few months, I haven’t felt like myself, and it’s felt like everything is going wrong. However, this trip was so beautiful and really help change my outlook on things. I had the opportunity to see the Frida Kahlo exhibit in Phoenix and got to hike in Sedona. For some reason, this trip felt incredibly magical, and it was one of things I’ve ever experienced in my life. As silly as it sounds, it revived me.

On top of this amazing trip, I got to come home and start a new position at the company I’m working at. My first week in this new position has gone extremely well! I feel like I’m making a difference and doing more of what I actually like. I’ve actually been so happy at work that several people have commented on it. Although it was really difficult to move from my previous position to this new position, it was worth it.

I’d like to thank everyone who gave awesome suggestions for where to go on my trip and for everyone who has offered support and love during these tough times. Love you all ❤️

Just got back from a spontaneous 4 day road trip that started at Sedona to hike/climb up a mountain then campout (without tents on purpose, like our ancestors did) under the stars inside THE VORTEX at Cathedral Rock for our first destination. It was, for lack of a better word, SURREAL. In case you didn’t know, Sedona in Arizona has a light pollution ordinance to preserve the view of the sky so there are NO street lights and by law after 11 the whole city MUST turn off their outside lights…. So once nightfall came we had the mountain to ourselves, (because camping on that Montain is prohibited lol), AND THE VIEW OF THE NIGHT SKY AND THE MILKY WAY WAS ASTONISHING! No exaggeration, we stopped counting the shooting stars we saw that night when the total hit 70. And these weren’t lil ass shooting stars that could have been mistaken for just eye movement, these were distinct as fuck with long trails behind them. Omg what a spectacle it was, y'all already know no one slept that night…. HELL, i don’t think anyone would’ve slept even if we didn’t bring a drug buffet with us lol. Im going to make another long ass post about the crazy entity that visited us that night too, cuz if there wasn’t 2 other people there with Me to see it, id think i lost my fuckin mind lol. lemme tell you the energy of that VORTEX is truly something else, you NEED to go there. Words simply CANNOT accurately describe it.

I’m going to miss hiking every day, my boots and legs stained with red dirt, taking in the vast skies and the endless landscape. I’m going to miss driving down the most stunning roads, hiking up to lookout points for sunsets, and enjoying the most beautiful views for each water break. The mountains, the canyons, the red rock - they call me. I know I’ll be back. Til next time, Arizona.
