Prayer Requests:  Flying Tomato’s grand-daughter is to come into the world by induction today.  Apparently she is quite comfortable where she is and was waiting for Coronavirus to pass.  Scout lifted up all the teachers and students.  Neo requested prayers for his sister-in-law as she is in the hospital with heart-related issues.

MOLESKINE:  Energy follows attention.

In other words, the things you are noticing, focusing on and paying attention to are the things your energy will go toward. If you remain focused on the negative your energy is likely to be low. You may feel depleted, tired, irritable, angry. 

If you can switch your attention to what’s good, what’s beautiful, what’s working, you can direct your energy to higher ground. Your brain will be more lit up and active — literally. 

Why do we post in the gloom?  Because we build each other up, always.  We don’t tear down or belittle.  Each of us are Sunshine Bazooka’s and that encouragement ripples out through the day.  To our M’s, our 2.0’s, our teams at work and beyond.

Even in our joking love is at the core of it.

It’s not complicated to get from down-in-the-mouth to being a Sunshine Bazooka.  Write down three things you’re grateful every day for 21 days in a row. That simple act increases your level of optimism, and it sticks for the next six months. The research on this is amazing.

Share the load when things get heavy instead of trying to carry it all yourself. And make room for others to share their experience, too.  F3 Sandhills vision: We build better men by embracing hard things together.

So I ask you, why are you here?  Are you articulating F3 goodness to others?
