Announcements and Prayer Requests: Oracle merch on slack and twitter, 12 in 21 with Yogi this weekend, Ice T afghan and Ukraine families to help. Reach out if interested.
CoT: Talked about how jiu jitsu destroyed my ego a long time ago and it was amazing because it opened my eyes up to how many people around me use their time and effort to help me along with my journey and how that correlates with F3 as well. 2nd F is really what keeps everyone from coming back out. Sure the workouts are fun and it’s great to grind a tough one out with some guys but all the mumble chatter is what makes it special. And what comes from that is wanting to help your fellow brothers excel in everything. That’s why I shared a quote I save on my phone that I will look at regularly if I’m frustrated or having a hard time with something.
“As they say on my own cape cod, a rising tide lifts all the boats. And a partnership, by definition serves both partners, without domination or unfair advantage. Together we have been partners in adversity, let us also be partners in prosperity.”
That’s all I had today. Was awesome to finally get to Q the OG Oracle site.
Appreciate the support for me, for Cheap Seats and the Oracle AO.
Cheap Seats led us out in prayer.
