Well as you can imagine as a gal I love to shop (better said: loved to) and wonder through the stores and imagine myself wearing that outfit or buying it. Either way it was great.
Now, with the “new normal” I find something missing from my previous life and that is the shopping in the stores and having that coffee break with friends as we recharge are batteries to go for another round of serious shopping for whatever it was we were looking for.
I am sure I am not the only gal out there who feels this way. And you too may be missing those day outs with your friends…
Online is the “new normal”, which is rather boring and there is nothing interesting, except sit there and scroll and click…. BORING!!!
The trill of entering a store and running your hands over the material or trying on that piece of clothing is not there when you are online…. Or the excitement of finding “just what you were looking for” is gone when you are online.
And I was doing something for my figure too, by walking around when I was shopping, and not stagnating in a chair… Those were the days.. I can shut my eyes and see it all in front of me… Shopping and getting a round of walking in there too!!
I’m old school action packed with the thought “ There before my eyes is exactly what I want” and it is hanging there on the rack or just shouting out at me and saying “ here I am, just waiting for you”!
What a feeling that was and it was only at the beginning of this year that I last had that feeling … now it seems like a memory that it is something that happened light years ago.
Nowadays, I sit here and write about my shopping memories and dream of the future when I can go out again with friends and enjoy the feeling of being in a store surrounded by those lovely pieces of clothing that “are just waiting for me”, and to walk around ( I cannot forget my figure… exercise is important, too).
I am not too sure when the time will come again, and where I should start, and I hope that the stores are still in business too… That is a rather worrying thought and all those poor people put out of work…. I (would) feel sorry for them…. I guess life is how it is and I still have great shopping memories and those cannot be taken from me, and gals I am sure you too have some great shopping memories that you can hold onto too.
Enjoy those shopping memories!
