11 HIM met at Badlands including FNG Nanny. These men knew that our favorite gal Cindy was lurking in the gloom and they came anyway. The message, A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. If we just wait for that link to break, or worse just cut it off when it shows weakness we will only shorten our chain until we have nothing left. We have to forge up our weak links and make them stronger. As HIM it is difficult to talk about problems we are facing, or going through. If we don’t talk about what’s going on in our life, no one may even be able to tell we are at a weak point and we may just break. Lean into the HIM of F3 to continue to forge your link. We are stronger together.

As HIM we can’t be afraid of failure. If we never fail that means we never push ourselves to our outermost limits. Look for the men that me be at a weak point in their life. Lean into them and forge them backup to their full strength. We are stronger together.

It’s always an honor to lead.
