Numberama, namerama, YHC had the privilege of taking us out.
Moleskin: Way to bring it Mechanicsville. These men have created something really special in DaVille. Everytime I make the extended journey, I’m greatly rewarded. Thanks for the effort and energy! I left The Creek fully charged.
NMS: The title of the BB came from an interaction YHC had a few weeks ago. After making a $1 donation into the bucket of a man standing on Forest Hill raising money for homeless veterans, he says to me “God bless you and let yourself be blessed.” Growing up in Texas and having allergies, I have heard “God bless you” more times than I could count. What struck me in that moment was “let yourself be blessed”.
I’m the luckiest guy on the planet and it’s a damn shame I don’t act like it every waking moment. I think there are many reasons we don’t let ourselves be blessed and we get off the tracks a bit. We may not think we are deserving or maybe it’s shame that’s holding us back. Whatever it is, letting yourself be blessed is a conscious choice you have to make. Maybe the bravest thing you could do today isn’t to hold your guard up, but to let it go.
