The amount of time it takes to ascend and descend the Grand Canyon varies greatly on the size of the group, hiking abilities, weather conditions, and trails that we choose to trek.  At Live Boldly Coaching, we believe that every moment while on the trail should be utilized for health, healing, growth and clarity.  We do not set limitations on time or distance.  As in life, we encourage our clients to simply be present.  That said, you definitely can plan on hiking for a minimum of six hours to descend into the Canyon, and a minimum of eight hours to ascend out of the Canyon.  We do take moments for rest, refueling, and reflection while on the trail.

“My worthiness + love aren’t tied to another h “My worthiness + love aren’t tied to another human being, nor should they be. However, I value the power of intimacy + conversations within a partner relationship, something my personal life has been void of for far too long. Many times people turn to their daughters, sons, friends, parents, or family members to fill missing parts of their lives. But in a relationship, no one should be responsible for playing a role that isn’t theirs. Your child should never replace your spouse, just as a parent should never replace your partner.”
— excerpt from my book, WALK THROUGH THIS, to be released November 10th.
.
Self Love + Self Worth are so important to live a healthy lifestyle! And yet, difficult or toxic relationships can make you question your very existence. I promise you:

You are loved.
You ARE LOVE!
We all simply need to believe in the worthiness of our own beating heart.

Please tag a friend you care about + drop a heart in the comments. Let’s spread Worthiness + Love.

I woke at midnight to an email from my literary ag I woke at midnight to an email from my literary agent. After sending her my recent edited manuscript, she wrote me, “I can't stop reading! Your Mom is awesome.”
.
This book tenderly holds my last 29 years with truth, inspiration + hope. I was cracked wide open during the last few years, and these pages share my healing journey with love + without judgment.

I honor my mom for teaching me much of what I know today. After my sexual assault + pregnancy at 17, mom was the woman who walked me through my healing.
I honor her.
.
So, upon receiving the email, I grabbed my hiking pack at 12:15 am this morning, jumped in my car to drive to a peak, and did what I’ve done for many years. I called + woke her up in Wisconsin to tell her ... someone else besides me thinks she’s pretty awesome. And she deserves to know that.
.
We talked while I drove to the mountain. I told her “Mom, you’ve been the glue in this family. Thank you for all you’ve done for me + us.” She replied, “Well, you’re welcome. It was an enlightened moment I had while sitting outside on the deck that gave me courage to guide you.” My mom and me are a lot alike. I feel enlightened in the mountains, when alone. She feels it outside, listening to her cardinals.
.
I was supposed to climb the mountain today with friends, but they went to the wrong trailhead. I believe life is happening for me, so when I realized that I’d be climbing alone, I asked for protection from my Grandpa + his Sister (they’re my Guardian Angels) + I set off on the trail. I held mom in my heart while I looked into the stars. I knew she’d be upset if she knew I was hiking alone, but she’d also understand.

Weirdly enough, the last text I sent her that said “I’ll call you when i get off the mountain. I love you!” went through sometime on the trail (long after I sent it). Her return message, “Ok, be safe!!!” I smiled when I read that.
.
I summited and made coffee while watching the sunrise + thinking about mom.
Content and happy.
This cup is for you, mom.
I hold you in my heart, always.
You’ve taught me so many lessons that have guided me to be the woman I am today.
I love you.
Never, ever forget how special that you are.

Your Daughter
Yesterday was my youngest sons 14th birthday. It’s hard to believe my oldest is almost 29 + my youngest is 14. 14!!! Being a mama is the most rewarding, sometimes difficult, at times painful experience to go through. But it’s also the BIGGEST GIFT watching them grow into adult humans, taking on the world in their own way.

I will always, always be there to protect + love on my guys. Every one of them.
Always. *sigh* I’m getting emotional.

Dear Friends, If you’re struggling with telling Dear Friends,

If you’re struggling with telling the truth, please stop + ask yourself why.

That’s your mirror saying, “Hey, time to look at your own issues.”
.
Don’t hand off your struggles. It’s simply not ok. Period.
