Grand Canyon

 

The perfect day at the Grand Canyon doesn’t take much. The creations and beauty of the land is more than enough to make any day perfect.

 

We arrived at the South Rim with people visiting from all over the world to all enjoy one of the seven wonders of the world.

 

First stop, Hopi Point and Powell Point. This was the best spot to start because it wasn’t as crowded as all the other look out points. The coolest part was all the paved areas surrounding the look out felt like you were right there all by yourself. This part of the GC is perfect for an easy stroll or bike ride. We found the 14 mile part of this South Rim is the only part where dogs are allowed.

 

Gazing out was breath taking!

 

The colors, landscape, and terrain were “out of this world” says Tillie.

 

No filters needed.

 

When you sit in silence and truly take in all around you it’s a bit overwhelming.

 

If there was ever a time in your life when you have felt like something was not possible or you questioned whether God would answer your prayers you be reassured that it’s more than possible.

 

Sometimes it takes nature to shake us at our core.

 

Sometimes it takes something truly beautiful to remind you what your life can really be like.

 

Sometimes it takes looking out at the Grand Canyon and realizing how much your life is worth.

 

That spark of what you thought was impossible no longer exists.

 

If you are not following on Facebook or Instagram jump in over to see some gorgeous shots of the day.

 5 Energy Boosters 

You know when you’re stuck in that activity that is practically making you pull your hair out? You feel like screaming? Ever been there? I know I have. At that moment, you can continue down that path or you can choose to change it up. It takes just as much energy to stay where you are as it does to change direction. Too much ick in your life creates negative thoughts and emotions which in turn creates bad habits that some of us spend our whole life trying to shed.  Give change a try.

Need a midday, week or month pick me up?  No problem. Here are some quick fixes to love. 

 5 Tips to Kick you out of that "Oh So Awful Frump"

  1.  Fresh Air...Take a step outside to replenish your body and soul.  Spending some time outside in the fresh air has been proven to increase your mood, reduce stress, and change your overall state of mind.  90% of the time it changes you.....in a positive way.
  2. MOVE....Your Body and you will MOVE your Mind. When you get up and get out your body is able to release all that frustrating, tiring juju it  has been storing.  Feed those 80 million cells in  your body!  Let them join the party and you will see just how well  they will repay you. 
  3. Green Tea..Most things green are great,  including leafy tea. Green tea boosts your immune system, revamps your mood and creates a soothing break.  
  4. Gratitude...When was the last time you took a moment to close your eyes and say thank you for all you are and have? And if that feels weird look around sweethearts....we live in the greatest place in the world. 

    When I can't seem to get to the place of gratitude, I force myself to think of 5 things I can  appreciate and then for each thing I find an example around me to fit that gift. 
  5. Breathing...some life back into your belly. The best way for all of us to get back to a place of less anxiety, stress, and back to a place of love, is to breathe.  Just like yours, my life  is  cram packed with  events, errands, and details.  But, guess what?  Deep breathing is free, takes a few minutes and has the power to move mountains. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Picture that breath changing all the cells in your body. Feeding them, making them full, making them happy. Feel the breath move through your body from your head to your feet. 

Sounds a little too much?.....

Try it.  

I guarantee it’ll bring you down to that “aaaahhh” state of being.
