Shopping can mean many things when you are looking to your future

Thinking about the kind of life you want is a form of shopping. You shop when explloring education opportunities. You shop when looking for people who can help you reach your goals. You even shop when you find people who inspire you. Shopping for a future can be serious business, but it also is fun because you get to make the decisions.
