As life gets busier and busier it is important to take the time to refresh your soul and spirit. Last week we made an impromptu trip to the most beautiful place in Arizona, Sedona. A place where positive vibes fill your soul and spirit. You can't help but feel relaxed, refreshed and alive as soon as you see the red rocks, picturesque views and mountain creations. The trip was 48 hours and well packed with stuff to do. Walking, hiking, putt-putt, shopping, eating, and spending quality time with family. Even though it was too short, the trip was enjoyed by all. It gave my daughter and I the chance to re-connect with cousins, sisters, nieces and nephews, sister-in-laws and strengthened our mother-daughter bond. There were 7 of us loaded into the car, filled to the brim with luggage and snacks. The car ride was where conversations on parenting, learning patience, comprising and bonding took place the most. It was a time to enjoy each other and we did. As our trip came to a close, I wished to be able to stay longer, we all did. But life moves on swiftly and all we can do is make the most of time we have together. As we drove home with Sedona in our rear view mirror, I realized, it wasn't just about spending time in the most beautiful place, it was about being together, sharing, learning and bonding with one another.
Plan a trip, getaway with your family, it doesn't have to even be overnight. A day trip will do. Make the time to reunite with your loved ones and spend quality time together. It could be the most important thing you do to refresh your spirit. All the best to you and yours, Dyan.
What we learned: Taking the time to make the time with family is the single most important thing you can do for everyone, patience, compromise and more about each other.
