I need to slow down and enjoy the moment, I forgot how to!

Posted by Victoria Inkster on March 1, 2018 at 3:25 PM

For the past couple of years I have worked a full-time job on top of taking care of all my costume orders and this has kept me crazy busy. The good part about this busy is... the craziest periods are during the winter and these months fly by like they never even happened. As you can obviously tell I am not the biggest fan of winter.

Before I worked two important jobs I took time out each week just for me. I would spend 3 hours every Thursday morning with a great group of individuals at a local art gallery taking painting lessons. I discovered during these 3 hours that for this brief period of my life I was actually learning to live in the moment, enjoy each paint brush stroke as I listened to the pleasant and often times outragiously funny conversation going on around me. I miss this.

Do you take time out just for you? And if you do are you consumed with guilt because you have so much to do, like work, taking care of kids, chores? When I discussed with friends about my weekly painting class my friends often exclaimed their lack of time for anything of this nature. Thus meaning they were living their lives week to week working or doing for others and never taking a moment just to reflect and take pleasure for themselves. This has been my story for the past couple of years, but there is an end in sight for me and life will go back to the way it was, or a very much improved version of my previous life! 

I am almost at the point where I can say good by to my day job and embrace my new business career of Costume Designer with great relish and enthusiam. This has been a tough road, but well worth the time and energy to get here. As I would often remind myself - Short term pain for long term gain. I appreciate my wonderful family for being so supportive of my lack of time to prepare meals, clean the house, do the laundery. I thank them all profusesly for stepping up and taking care of things while I went from office to costume shop every day.

When this big day arrives when I walk out of the office building for the very last time, you can bet your last dollar I will definitly be seen every Thursday morning, painting and laughing with my art friends, because I believe everyone of us deserves to be happy, to slow down and enjoy living in the precious moment. We all deserve the time to take for ourselves each week, without the burden of guilt.

All my costume orders will get done, meals will get made, sometimes I may not get the house as clean as I would like, but oh well, I would rather laugh and have fun with you then not have time because my house needs to be tended to.

Why am I writing this? because too few of you know the pleasure of living in the moment, how life for a brief period will slow done just for you if you would only take a planned few minutes to enjoy some fun for yourself. I want this for all of you. Life speeds by all too quickly, start planning now on how and when you will take a few moments each week to be you and only you.

Then please share with me the stories of this special time.

Your costume designer and friend
