So today I turn 41.  A little over a year ago I joined F3.  I honestly had no idea the impact it would have on me.  I have had a couple major moments in my life.  The most impactful in both a good and bad way was the passing of my mom when I was 12 years old.  She was only 42.  Her life from 40 to the day she passed was spent fighting breast cancer.

Last year, on this day, I struggled.  I was a sad clown and worse didn’t even understand how deep I was in sad clown syndrome.  I was coming here, going through the motions and not getting anywhere.  I made excuses when I should have been making commitments.  I didn’t have breast cancer but I was fighting for my life and didn’t even know it.  

I have battled with addictions to both drugs and alcohol at different stages of my life.  I have fought depression and loneliness.  I have fought obesity.  I can also promise to continue to fight sad clown syndrome.  I will be a Servant to my M, my 2.0s, my Shieldlock and each of you men that open themselves to F3 and its principles.  The next year of my life I want to finish getting right.  I need to continue my fitness journey.  I need to work on my faith and most importantly I need to learn to seek to understand.

I am a firm believer in accountability.  I am asking you as my brothers to keep me accountable.  Don’t keep quiet to “save my feelings”  you are doing me a disservice.  

Whether you guys realize it or not, you have given me the gift of life and I will fight every day to give you everything I can to repay that gift.

Thank you for showing up and thank you for keeping me accountable.
