As I mentioned in my last post, Robby and I were able to spend the Thanksgiving holiday at our cabin in Maggie Valley, aka “My Happy Place”. We packed up our Thanksgiving leftovers and our dogs and headed out to the valley. Since we traveled on Thanksgiving day, there was very little traffic and we arrived by lunch time.
The weather was cool and sunny and even though the leaves had fallen, the beauty of this place still amazes me. We enjoyed some walking in the woods and a few sidewalks/trails. Fresh crisp air filled my lungs and reminded me that I’m alive. As we walked by Jonathon Creek, the sound of rushing water soothed my soul and in those moments, all is well.
The cabin is my place for being refreshed. My routine is different and so is my perspective. When I travel to the cabin I leave the concerns of daily life back home and my focus is just to be present in the beauty and peace of this place. My perspective is always better and when I return home, I am better able to tackle my “regular” life once again.
Here are a few more reasons why I love this place so much…..
Looking forward to next month’s visit already!!!!
So what’s the take away…..
- We all need a time of refreshment
- A change of location often creates a change of perspective
- Nature’s beauty inspires
- Find your happy place and when it calls, GO!
