Day 58: A Day Off to Work It Out!

by Sarah Devika Sumnauth


I am so ready for my day off tomorrow.  After being on my feet and on the go for the past week, my day off will be devoted to what I love - Urban Minerals.  I can’t wait to get out my mixing equipment, rework my formula again, and try to make some more progress on my final product.  

The next steps, once I get my formula down pat, are to replicate it over and over in as many shades as I can fathom, with as many people as I can get to sit for me.  I want my product to be a reflection of who I am and how I do business, stylish and conscious with a dash of thoughtfulness and responsibility.  I also would like to start working on my repertoire because practice makes perfect and I find that the less time I give to Urban Minerals, the more my subconscious rebels and starts sending me scary, anxiety ridden nightmares of things left undone…

In the fine tuning stage, I get to think about how to ensure my product is as healthful as possible while still keeping Local and Organic in mind along the way.  I say health benefits, because as life woud have it, Whole Foods has sparked and set fire to my love of alternative health practices, and that is something I want to remain conscious of.

There are obviously many questions I’ve started to answer, what with my work done with some Vauxhall Gardens Calendula Infused Sweet Almond oil, but there is so much yet to come, so many things to consider, so many things I want to incorporate, and so many things that I have no damn clue about, that I need to do my homework on, but that is just the fun of the journey yet to come.

In life I often find myself thinking, “I can’t wait until X is done”, which is actually a pretty dangerous state of mind.  I think in allowing myself to think this way, I neglect my potential to feel amazing about the things that I’m doing right now, and that’s a shame because I think I’m going to look back on the right now and think wow, I was doing so much…

But alas…

On this particular day off, I will take my day to do what I want to do, what I’m happy doing and that makes me fall in love with life all over again.  

So here’s a question for you - what do you do on your days off?  Are they technically days that you spend “working”?  Or do you kick back and really get your relax on?  I don’t even look at my day tomorrow as if it were work - because I know I’ll have my music going, my energy up and I can take breaks whenever I want…

Wish me luck!
