Day Ninety Five on the Path: A Flynn Day

Posted by lyoungblood1500 on April 10, 2020 at 5:45 PM

I’ve often heard that every day is a choice – a choice of what lens to look through. In this house, we have Flynn days and Sybilla days. Flynn days are slothish, focused around food and sleep, and maybe even a little whiny. Sybilla days are energetic, focused on playing and being loving, and usually involve mischief. Today was definitely a Flynn day.

I got up at 6:30 but promptly fell right back asleep…and stayed there. I do not change out of my PJs. I do not have my morning tea and fizzy drink. I do not exercise. I do not make my class online. I do not even go downstairs until well past noon. Not in a box. Not with a fox.

I do, however, get in a full length listen to the health and relaxation NLP track from many weeks back. And a tapping, of course, and even a bonus mindful meditation.

Between meditations, I also do a little searching for more cloth and elastic for the masks I’m making for the Million Mask Campaign. I’ve pledged to sew 25 masks, in addition to the masks I’ve pledged to add into the Arbonne care kits for our local hospital, and I’m running out of materials. It seems that there’s quite a run on cotton and elastic these days…most suppliers are out of it until May.

I chat with a couple clients about how they’re doing on the 30 Days to Healthy Living program. It’s so much fun to help guide folks through this and answer questions that come up along the way. It also feels good to know I’m doing something to help them stay healthy right now. The hubby and I also talk a friend through the unemployment process so they can get registered for benefits.


I binge a few episodes of the Voice, which always makes me feel positive and hopeful. I run a load of laundry and change the bedsheets because nothing feels better after a long day than clean sheets. I finish selecting the photos for my vision board and begin to sequence them for the slideshow, because I know the vision board will lift my spirits once it’s done.

So, it isn’t a wasted day, exactly… just not an energetic one. And a slightly whiny one. The hubby and I are bickering, our grocery order still hasn’t arrived, we can’t get outside because it’s raining again, we have blown through the first of six free weeks on a new fitness program without trying a single workout, and I’m feeling all sneezy and itchy from allergies. Mom-in-law has taken to ordering stuff online, then forgetting she ordered it, and so ordering it again, or even a third time. As of today, we have 10 pounds of Jarlsberg cheese in the fridge. The hubby wants to work on a project - a Moroccan cornice board for our bathroom - but I’m just not motivated. And my favorite pair of socks has a hole in the big toe. Can you hear the “Waaaaah” running through this day?

And to top it all off, when we settle in by the roaring fireplace for dinner, the tv starts acting up, and we finally figure out that the flu for the fireplace is closed and the heat is melting our nice big soundbar and tv screen.

It’s a Flynn Day.


The Daily Deets:

Exercise – My thumb and the tv remote


Meditation – Healing Relaxation (, I’m stressed about uncertainty (, a 20 minute mindful meditation.


Healthy Meal – Lentil soup with extra veggies. A pumpkin pie shake. Chicken Tarna with salad and hummus.


Creative – Vision Board photo selections complete. Sync still in progress






1 – I am grateful our tv didn’t melt.

2 – I am grateful for Flynn and his big white furry belly, and the fantastic “old man” sounds he makes, and the weight of him on my feet at night, and his adorable pink nose, and those big eyes that he will occasionally blink lovingly at me.

3 – I am grateful for clean sheets

4 – I am grateful pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice mix.

5 – I am grateful for the space heater at my feet keeping my big toe warm
