Redeeming August

First off a commentary on Circles, and for those of you who are on their game I thank you and apologize, but that is not me so here goes.

I love you guys so much! It’s pretty crazy, because last year I was very selfish with how and when I would use the word “love”. Thinking that my not using the word somehow kept its integrity intact. I realize now that what I thought was saving was actually strangling. To not use the word when its called for is it the exact opposite of what I was trying to do. I felt others used it out of context way too often. Something I realize now is that overcompensation doesn’t make things right, it just throws things even more off balance.

So yes I love you all. I love this program and group dynamic! These past two months for me in CIRCLES have been really bad. I have been really lame, this compromise of my commitments for CIRCLES is even reflecting into my own personal spiritual life. I started CIRCLES strong and excited! Blogging! Reading! Meeting! I want these last 2 months with you guys to be like the first four months with you guys! I want to finish this race set before me. I am not going to fizzle out. Both for me and for you! It’s exactly what I said above, I love you guys! When I read your stuff and have conversations with you on Saturdays I get so blessed! For me to back off and get lazy is really me hurting you. I know life can get in the way, it has for me these last two months. We are not perfect, we will struggle EVERYDAY! I hear what you are all going through, interestingly enough it seems that similar struggles are prowling around the group, like a roaring lion looking to devour. We are in this together and I want to finish this commitment strong! I want August to mean something! I won’t greet September with a shrug. So basically sorry AGAIN for being lame.

I am going to step up my game!



\(except July 14 when ill be in Florida nerding it up)



  1. Thanks for saying this.... I agree. We did all start out strong and I do see a fizzling away. I love Circles and what I have learned and the people. Thanks for sharing your love with us Frank! I love you all too :) Thanks for the encouragement to step it up. Hope you are having a great weekend!

  2. I'm sure we'll all keep in touch even after Circles is over!

  3. I know this is an old post, however, I just saw your recent blog posting in my feed and then I started reading through some others haha. But. Totally loved this post. Makes me miss Circles so very much. Such a fun endeavor and I hope you are being a good mentor to all those peeps!
