I want to tell you a little story about a very wise man. He had a very big family, his children were grown-up already and even his grandchildren were of ten and eleven. All his life he was saving money. They had a big house, so that they could live together and a big car so that they could travel together. But still he was saving, and all the money he managed to save during the year he spent on a big family journey. Every year the big family was planning where to go. They liked to discuss the exact itinerary. As their family was a really big one, their plans and wishes were quite different, and they always tried to visit lots of places and meet the most interesting people, so that everyone in the family was happy with the trip. That was kind of a tradition and they called it an "investment in memories." When the wise man died, his family still followed the tradition: they lived together and traveled together.
Unfortunately, just a few people can afford a big journey for a large family. But still we try to have at least a little trip every year. They say that a month of traveling brings to a person enough energy for working the whole year. There is no better way to have a rest as to change the place, atmosphere, and to try something new. Even if we do not have the time or money for going far-far away we should spend some time out of the place we usually live. Surely, it is better to have active rest, as an active person gets more energy. It is a nice way to fill up the creative forces. It also can help you to enjoy life to the fullest and try to find something beautiful in every moment we live.
A museum gift shop is a place of memories for everyone. We usually want to see a lot, but have little time. So we walk around the city on foot. Take many pictures; explore every corner of the place you visit. Then probably you will have many funny stories and nice memories.
Another way to not forget your great holidays is a museum gift shop. Surely, you will not like every piece in a museum, and maybe you will not be able even to see everything. But something will surely impress you a lot. You can go to a museum gift shop and find something connected with the piece you particularly liked. Let it be a little copy of the picture, or a book about an architect, whose creation impressed you a lot, or maybe a postcard with a nice view, and brochures, describing a museum. All these things are significant for remembering your holiday. They also will be effective at helping you to find a new source of energy, even when it seems to be impossible.
The Vatican museum gift shop, or the Metropolitan museum gift shop have so many things that will remind you about impressive things that people managed to create and may even challenge you to create something outstanding, making your inner creative potential to wake up and work hard.
Any museum gift shop is a nice place to get something unique and gorgeous. Just look around in a museum gift shop. Everything you are going to buy in such a shop is your "investment in memories" and probably you should not try to save on them.
