I have something really exciting to tell you about! It may not be exciting to some but for me it is really exciting. I was in the mall at Canadian Tire getting some keys cut and then I had to go to my doctors office to make an appointment. On the way I was passing the clothing store Eclipse.
Now for years, I have been passing by the store and would never look in because I knew that there was no way that I would be able to shop there, so I would just walk by. Lately, when walking in the mall, I have been looking in the store but still afraid to look too much or go in because I was not sure that the clothes would fit me. I really don't want to walk into a store and find out that there is no way that the clothes would fit. Today, I felt brave and I walked in the store and looked around, and guess what...I FOUND LOTS OF CLOTHES THAT FIT!!
It was a really big deal for me. To know that I can shop in that store that I thought I would never be able to shop in! I was paying for my shirt and 2 tanktops and I actually had tears in my eyes. The lady at the cash must have thought that I was a nut job, but I really don't care.
In one year, I have gone to having 2 stores to shop in to a whole lot of stores that I can shop in. I also can't believe the difference in price. I can buy a t-shirt for $10 now when before I would be lucky to get a t-shirt for $25 and I would have to travel to New Glasgow to get it.
Another thing that I realized just the other day is that when I am getting ready for the gym it doesn't matter what towel I grab. Before, I used to have to make sure that I got a beach towel because the regular bath towels would not cover me completely and I really did not want to be exposing any part of myself at the gym. It feels so nice to just grab a towel and not have to worry about the size of the towel.
