2020.01.21 – Say ‘Yes’ – Wild Kingdom – Back Blast

01/21/2020 Wild Kingdom Backblast: Say ‘Yes’
Tuesday January 21, 2020 | Wild Kingdom AO | Zorinsky Lake | 1 (feels like -11)

4 PAX: Othello, Crab Cakes, Slick, Rancid
Q: Rancid
Bright and beaming, PAX gathered ‘round the spiritual shovel flag in icy anticipation for a wintry beatdown. Rancid rang the proverbial bell at 0530: welcome, mission statement, core principles, and disclaimer. No FNG’s. He advised the crew to take extra caution when we mosey as paved pathways are dangerously slick this morning. Today’s workout would primarily occur atop the snowy grasslands of Wild Kingdom.

Prayer Requests
• Slick & M in our thoughts as they experience a transition in their lives
• Shout-out to fellow PAX who were unable to post this AM

Say ‘yes’ to opportunity. It’s one of my mantas, and I encourage fellow HIM to borrow it often. Keep in mind – opportunity isn’t always what we seek, nor is opportunity exclusively about ourselves. Allow yourself the privilege to say ‘yes’ especially when it involves engagement with others. To purposefully say ‘yes’ to life is a powerful discipline.
Make mindful decisions.
Keep moving forward!

Closed out in prayer. (Thank you, Sky Q!)
All PAX attended coffeteria.

Aye,
Rancid
