Steph:  Oh god. It’s totally Friday. I have no food at home. I have to go to the grocery store.

Sara:  I know. That happens to me, too. But you know what’s weird about me? It’s that I actually really love the grocery store.

Steph:  You do? Do you go to the big ones or the smaller ones?

Sara:  I usually go to kind of like a medium size one. But I love grocery shopping. I just think it’s so much fun.

Steph:  Why do you love it so much?

Sara:  I dunno. I guess it’s fun to see what they have and to get like fresh produce and fun kind of frozen food and stuff like that. I just think it’s fun.

Steph:  That’s true, especially when you buy the impulse buys at the checkout. Isn’t that fun?

Sara:  Mmmhmm. That’s really fun. But that’s so dangerous too because they’re so expensive.

Steph:  I know. It can really add up.

t’s pretty cool to think positively about grocery shopping. A lot of people really can’t stand it, but it sounds like Sara actually enjoys it.
We could all learn a lesson from people like Sara. We should put a little bit of joy back in our lives.
Part of the reason we don’t look forward to shopping is that the people around us can be rude.
In a perfect world, we would all be happy and smiling at the grocery store. Then we would all enjoy it a little bit more!
Have a great weekend!
