It’s That Time of the Year…
…to find your happy place in the midst of holiday madness. As the Christmas holiday kicks into high gear, shoppers take over the highways, malls, and internet. The brisk, hustle-bustle atmosphere is an annual delight that can quickly turn into a joyless pressure cooker.
The schedule fills up with family gatherings and office parties, school and church plays and events, gift hunting trips and obligations of all shapes and sizes. Finances often spiral out of control. And the pressure to keep up with the crushing demands can ruin anyone’s Christmas spirit.
“There are moments,” wrote Henry David Thoreau, “when all anxiety and stated toil are becalmed in the infinite leisure and repose of nature.”
Everyone Needs A Happy Place
It’s easier to navigate the stressful effects of holiday demands when you can balance it all out with planned escapes to your happy place. Do you have a happy place? A sanity retreat? A quiet respite in the country or woods where every care melts away near a lake or under a canopy of towering oaks and pines?
Henry David Thoreau spent two years living alone in a forest cabin near Walden Pond in Massachusetts. He knew the power of wooded serenity.
Out here at Providence RV Park, our residents know that unique tranquility, as well.
Let the Lights Shine
But escaping the metro congestion doesn’t mean we forget how to celebrate our favorite holidays and seasons. Our residents have been busy dressing up their homes in sparkles and lights. They’ve be-ribboned posts, trees–anything that looks like it could use a touch of festive color.
A stroll through the park reveals a gorgeously tall tree with elegant cream tones shining out through one window, while another home is decked out in beautiful lights and puffy lit up animal friends.
Garlands, ribbons, wreaths, and blinking lights invite the Christmas spirit in, while simple living keeps Christmas stress out.
It’s a lovely, reflective time of year as we wind down from whatever 2019 may have brought our way, and turn our thoughts toward the brand new year moving into view.
