Circle of Trust

Told a story about my Mom. Moral –

When you face the truth, fear goes away. So as we wander through our days, remember to take a moment and be 100% honest with yourself. That fear and anxiety clears up pretty fast.

What the hell can I possibly say other than thank you! 60 HIMs at EIL?! You guys are the best.
Few random thoughts:

– Today was an R rated movie, a really, really funny R rated movie

– Having Bronco squat with me on his back made me feel safe. It was like being a new born cradled in an adult’s arms.

– The respect, respect club was out in full force making men 20 years younger look like candy asses.

– Special thanks to my M for dropping coffee and donuts for an on-site coffeeteria

– I missed you guys a lot. Having had to stay away for 4 months was a heartbreaking reminder of how special this goofy-ass thing we do really is. Love you guys.
