Why I Choose to See the World with Fresh Eyes

by Sarah Devika Sumnauth

Wowza, it’s officially the start of the last work week of my life as an entrepreneur in start up mode.  WILD. 

I can’t believe I’m now here.  This wondrous state of being has me juggling all sorts of things, finishing various tasks, projects and working with all sorts of different people and maintaining all kinds of data and inventory.  It’s cool when I stop to survey what exactly I’ve created and realize that omg, it’s actually kinda fun… whoaaa.

I know this idea is not novel, but for this moment it is to me.  I had no idea I would ever get here.  Truth be told, I simply worked towards my goals in a nonchalant way that had me feeling almost detached from the outcome.  With low expectations, I didn’t realize that the things I was creating could actually be fun to create on an ongoing basis.  That spreadsheets that took the math out of calculations could be fun to work in.  Or that planning a huge event like a launch party would actually have me enjoying myself at said party.

Again.  WILD.

I realize now that I may sound kind of innocent or naive, but hey, it’s all new to me.  I’m a young, female, eco-entrepreneur and I choose to see the world with fresh eyes sometimes.  In fact, most of the time I do consciously wonder how this and all other experiences look to a baby or a kid who’s never experienced them before and I test myself to find that head space.  It’s very healthy for me I’d say.  And to be quite honest, I don’t want to give that up.  I will take the naivete and the fun and move through all of the wonderful things that are sure to be coming my way with those perspectives intact, so that I (hopefully) never lose the vitality I currently have.

So yes, with 5 days left until Urban Minerals launches, I endeavour to keep it together and work towards all that I’ve been dreaming of, for what will surely be a fun time.

Can you dig it??

With nothing but love,
