Today, your word of the day is honesty. This one is tough for me because I have grown up about as insecure as you could imagine. I lived behind lies from my earliest memories, and struggled to let people in by being honest with them. Start simple. If you are pumped about your job, tell your boss how grateful you are. If you are feeling weary, thin, beat down by the punches of daily life, tell your wife, tell your friend, tell a fellow F3 brother. If you are worried about what’s coming down the road, open up. If you can’t wait for what’s next, share so we can celebrate with you.

Whether you believe it or not, we live in a culture that denigrates men who share with others. Understand that most guys out here, even, aren’t used to living in and around other men who are honest about what life is tossing at them today, this week, this year. Whether your life is full of joy or sorrow, talk about it, share it with the people around you.
