CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
There is a whole lot of uncertainty floating around in the news and it’s creating a whole lot of fear. We can’t see the future nor can we influence things like pandemic illness. We can, however, wake up every day and be a leader. We can lead our family, our friends, and our peers with a calm, steadfast discipline. Focus on the items you can control, and the rest will work itself out.
MOLESKIN:

MID WORKOUT MINI BOM: The three sections of the work out were parallels with our lives. The first section was Chance, when things happen in our lives without our control or anyone else’s. Although I don’t believe in Chance, God is always in control, it’s not necessarily something we see coming or can plan for. We can either take it positively or negatively. We can either work hard at work were dealt with or we can complain and break down because we are not in control. The second area was being directed or told what to do. Many of us have issues with this as we are brought up to be leaders and sometimes following orders is difficult. We can either take it and do what we’re supposed to do or moan and groan and say I would do it this way instead. The third area was our own choices. Where we are  able to dictate what we do in our lives. We can either live our lives in a positive manner we can live our lives in a negative manner. For all three of these scenarios, we need to ask ourselves what are we trying to accomplish. Are we going to be a blockade, or are we going to be a driver. And that’s all Tank has to say about that.

La-z-Boy takes over as Tank had to take his momma to the airport.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
March is Mental Health Month for F3. This is a great place for men who need a workout and fellowship. If there’s a man in our world that needs more than that, it’s okay. Sometimes guys need a Psychologist or Medication to correct a chemical imbalance. That’s not for us to decide. We’re here to encourage men.
MOLESKIN:

Got lucky that the number selection didn’t backfire. Wasn’t exactly what I had planned but it worked out for us. We didn’t have a bit of creativity on names for the FNG so we landed on the predetermined He-Man as promised. Bartman had a sweet van.
