    TRIGGER WARNING
    There is one inevitability that we are will face. That is our death. No one can escape that fact that we will no longer exist at some point. We live and we must die. However, that doesn't mean we can't live our lives to our fullest potential before that day and be happy and healthy while doing so.
    I want you to ponder on this fact throughout your day and week. If you found out tomorrow that it was going to be your last day - What would you do different? Would you love more? Make mends with those fractured relationships? The list goes on.
    Whether tomorrow ends or not you should be living your life like there is no tomorrow. 
    This is the only way your life will change.

    You want to know the secret to success? Step out of your comfort zone. That's it. Simple yet hard to do. We are all creatures of habit and we don't like change. But, you need to radically change your life in order to succeed in anything. First, you need to stop doing the Sh*t that brings you heartache and stress. Doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result is the definition of crazy.
    Remember you have to power. You always had and always will.

    Criminal Justice Evolution Podcast: Microcast Monday - Find Solace within Yourself

    Stoicism - an ancient Greek school of philosophy founded at Athens by Zeno of Citium. The school taught that virtue, the highest good, is based on knowledge
    Much of the teachings and literature on Stoicism is still very relevant in our modern world. I really liked the Roman Emperor / Stoic - Marcus Aurelius
    Everyday I read a book by Ryan Holliday - The Daily Stoic. 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and The Art of Living. 
    The following reading is from March 21st. 
    "People seek retreats for themselves in the country, by the sea, or in the mountains. You are very much in the habit of yearning for those same things. But this is entirely the trait of a base person, when you can, at any moment, find such a retreat in yourself. For nowhere can you find a more peaceful and less busy retreat than in your own soul- especially if on close inspection it is filled with ease, which I say is nothing more that being well-ordered. Treat yourself often to this retreat and be renewed." - Marcus Aurelius, - Meditations, 4.3.1
    Stop looking to the outside world to find peace. Find Solace within Yourself.

Incredible platform for all first responders

I recently had the pleasure and honor to be a guest on Criminal Justice Evolution. Prior to the podcast I listened to about five or six shows and was it immediately impressed by the friendly and engaging personality of the host Patrick Fitzgibbons. I was even more impressed when we began the interview. He uses a very unstructured “organic“ format to create a warm and friendly environment for people to open up and discuss sensitive topics. I had a tremendous time while recording this podcast and came away feeling like I had known Patrick for decades. Criminal Justice Evolution is not only a great show but performs a tremendous service for the first responder community.

Reset, regroup! Professionally peaceful!

Patrick’s ‘bedside manner’ if you will, is humbling and reassuring. Speaking from his vast experience in not only the LEO life but also as a veteran of this great country’s armed services. I’m proud and humbled by his genuine friendship and brotherhood he shares with me and the rest of our first responder and veteran community.
As a 15 year correctional officer and a 20 year veteran of the Army, I struggled with mental health and addiction. God put Patrick in my life for a reason. Sharing his wisdom, heartfelt and educated approach to helping others added in my first steps through recovery and is Patrick’s mission now. A true warrior!
Thank you Pat!
God bless you my brother!
