Day Thirty Eight on the Path:What a day

Posted by lyoungblood1500 on February 13, 2020 at 8:40 PM

I am feeling down-right powerful today. Not sure why but I’m embracing it! I’m running from Porter Ranch to Los Feliz to Pasadena today, but it’s all for wonderful and creative ventures. Since I’m out most of the day, I start earlier than usual.

Exercise – Wow. I never knew nine minutes could feel so long! Today was straight HIIT (high intensity interval training) and I felt every second of that cardio kick. Burpees, walking planks, push-ups, Oh My! Glad that one is over.


Meditation – I have time for my Vision Board before I leave the house, but nothing else. That’s okay because after everything else wraps up, I’m going back to Just Float for another isolation tank. This one is fantastic – about thirty minutes of just calm mindful meditation and another thirty minutes of inspiration for my web series. Bonus!

Healthy Meal – Thank goodness for those shakes! I don’t think I would have had any other thing to eat until dinner if it weren’t for these. I made a double dose before I left and drank. It. All! And still had so much energy that I stayed awake for my whole float, made a yummy healthy stir-fry dinner with the hubs when I got home, and stayed up til 1am because I couldn’t fall asleep. Now that’s what I’m talking about.

Creative – My first stop of the day is a rehearsal with my new scene and scene partner for class. We’re working on “Her” a film with Joaquin Phoenix. I get to play the ex-wife who has come to sign divorce papers, only to discover she’s being replaced by a computer. It seems like such an innocent scene on the surface, but it turns out to be amazingly complex. My partner and I have a great first run, and I head out to a client meeting.

Once my meeting is done – a successful meeting with a dear friend who is joining me on the cleanse! – I head to the float. For starters, I love this place, the calm vibe from the moment you walk into the lobby. Secondly, I love the way I feel when I’m here and when I leave. Tonight’s float was half relaxation and half inspiration – I have the title sequence of my Web Series “Hat Couture” all mapped out visually and part of the theme song running through my head by the time I drive home. I’ve been mulling over ideas for weeks, but it hadn’t come together until now.



1 – I am incredibly grateful for my first client today. So excited to take this journey with her and see how it helps her. It felt GREAT!

2 – I am grateful for inspiration after a bit of a dry spell for my Web Series. It’s a kooky, educational, fun series about hats. And now I have a title sequence!

3 – I am thankful for my car – that little (hybrid) engine that could and does get me from point A to B to C and home again. I love it!

4 – I am grateful for another gorgeous sunset tonight. I got to watch it develop from just the hint of peach in the sky all the way to magenta and midnight blue on my drive home. Wow! Just wow!

5 – I am grateful for feeling great today. Full of energy, full of confidence, full of love and gratitude. All days should be this wonderous.
