I love going to Chapters! There are so many good books there, which encourage people to read! There are so many fun and positive quotes, which encourage people to “Keep Calm” and take it easy! There are many colourful, fancy, and guided journals, which encourage people to write and express their thoughts on a regular basis! There are a variety of cards, which remind people to write and send a card to someone they care for! Of course, there are the cute stationary and decorations! And oh, the aroma of coffee! There are countless inspirations there! I feel excited, every single time I visit! I find “me” in the store!
Find a store that you love, make regular visits, purchase things according to what you can afford or just window-shop, and don’t forget to bring your excitement—the excitement that children would experience every single time they go to Toys “R” Us or the Aquarium! Life is so much happier when we are able to add a few exclamation marks to a seemingly “normal” routine or event; that excitement would further lead to pleasure and gratitude. Energy is contagious—your excitement can make the people surrounding you happier too!
Affirmation: I enrich my life when I am able to see and experience excitement in simple daily routines, situations, or outings.
