Welcome to MIDWEEK with MIDTOWN: Episode 14!
One of our favorite things about the holidays that we all just experienced is seeing how different people decorate their home. Everyone has a different take on what brings the holiday spirit to life for them, and their family. We love the idea that ambiance can create that warm, inviting feeling for everyone who enters their home.
That got us thinking about how we could all bring that same sense of closeness and family into the new year. While the holiday decorations may be all packed up, boxed up, and back in the attic for storage we wondered if there was a way to bring the joy from the holidays into our everyday lives at the beginning of 2018.
We saw this picture, and a light went on. Actually, to be more specific, a warm light. The coziness of a fireplace in a living room, with family and friends gathered around its hearth.
It's a simple reminder of a place to gather.
The truth is, we need to make a point of spending more time connected to one another, face to face. Most of us have a myriad of different digital devices that grab and keep our attention. They are helpful, informative, and have created fantastic advancements in life. You are probably using your favorite device to read this blog right now. But when these helpful tools outrace our attention for one another, we begin to miss the moments we experienced around the holidays throughout the rest of the year.
Our challenge in this week's episode of MIDWEEK with MIDTOWN is to slow down, put it down, and look around. Are you intentionally shutting digital devices off, and plugging into the people closest to you? Are you making time for family game night, story-telling, or any other family tradition that you enjoy together? Maybe it's themed around music, food, or something else.
Whatever it takes to come together, let's make sure 2018 grabs hold of the spirit from the holidays and pulls it into our reality to start this year. Let's not wait another eleven months to gather. To laugh. To sing. To play. To simply slow down, unplug, and relax in the company of those closest to us.
Thanks for stopping by our digital living room at Midtown Realty Company. We hope you find the time to spend with your family and friends this week in your actual living room.
Have fun. Make memories. Leave a legacy your kids will teach their kids, and be talked about for generations to come.
From our heart to your hearth.
-Your friends at Midtown Realty Company.
