LumiNature

Well Sunshine, it’s that time of the year again. You know the one. The one with lights, mistletoe, trees, and all manner of festivities. I’m trying really hard this year to not let my heart grow 2 sizes too small and remain full of cheer. This year, for maybe the 1st time in my life, I’m not really up for it. I’m no Ebenezer Scrooge though, so I’m pushing through. How am I doing this you ask? Well, I’m glad you asked. 1st thing I did was buy a real tree. Now, I’ve done this before, but baby NEVER from a lot. It’s quite different and I completely underestimated some things. I don’t even wanna talk about it. Just know that I currently have a tree in my living room that is massive. Smells AMAZING, but is ALL types of in the way.

Next thing I did was hit the zoo. They have this amazing light exhibit and it was giving all the Christmas feels. I love things that are BOTH adult and kid friendly. I arrived and check in was smooth. I showed the tix on my phone, they scanned it, and in I went. Immediately, you find yourself immersed under a blanket of lights. It was breathtaking. Then you walk, and walk, and walk.

Each step brings you closer and closer to another exhibit. Now, although, this is the zoo, there are no live animals. All of the animals are away and it’s only lights. Animals are either projected or made up of lights. What you can expect are clearly labeled restrooms, amazing music, inviting exhibits, and several places to eat/drink.

Be mindful though, if you are the type that wants the cute photo, it’s hard. There are couples and families all out with their cameras trying to get the perfect shot. If I may, lemme suggest that you just enjoy the moment. Don’t worry about the photo. You will be okay, if you don’t post on Instagram, Tik Tok, Twitter, Facebook, snap chat or whatever else form of social media exists. Trust me I know because I did it. I started to get the shot and do the cute pose. Something in me though, just decided to be present.

Here’s my charge to you…don’t be an Ebenezer Scrooge. Find some holiday cheer however you can, and then give some of it to others.

Let Your LumiNature Light Shine!
