There are two types of people that will enter your life as you navigate it. The people that need to be in it and love and support you, and the opposite. Choose wisely. My next guest is Chad Bruckner and he is a dear friend of mine. Chad was there when I needed him the most, and continues to be there for me. 

In this episode, Chad talks about his challenges. We talk about life, leadership and resiliency. Some of my favorite topics. 

Chad Brucker and my other Friend Ryan Chartrand also have a great podcast called Breaking Badge.

Hello everyone and welcome back to The Criminal Justice Evolution Podcast. Thank you so much for the support. Please remember our first responders who protect and serve everyday, especially in this holiday season.

A big Thank You to all the Criminal Justice professionals out there. Remember you are honored, cherished and loved. Please be safe! 

It is such an honor to be partnered with Detectachem. This amazing company is helping keep our criminal justice professionals / military personnel safer with their mobile threat technology.

I am very excited to have Bridget Truxillo on the show. She is the first guest I have had on the podcast in a long time and it was an honor talking with her.

SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCE: David III (Bridget's son) stopped in to say hi and wave. =)

Bridget Truxillo is the Founder and CEO of Protective Wellness. Bridget knows the challenges law enforcement officers face, both outside and inside their agencies based on her experiences as a Deputy Sheriff in Gainesville, Alachua County, Florida.

Bridget started out in Patrol, but very quickly transferred to the  Narcotics and Organized Crime Unit (NOCU), and also became the only female member of  the SWAT team. 

During her time in the NOCU, Bridget routinely conducted undercover buys of narcotics and effectuated many arrest and search warrants as a result of her undercover operations. 

While on the SWAT team, Bridget participated in serving search warrants, active shooter and hostage situations, competed twice in SWAT Round-up International  (an International SWAT competition), as well as many hundreds of hours of training.

Although being a Deputy Sheriff allowed Bridget to serve the public, Bridget realized she wanted to find a way to serve the law enforcement and first responder community directly so she left law enforcement to attend law school as a means to glean the knowledge and skills necessary for this purpose. After 13+ years practicing law in civil litigation, Bridget was able to curate a unique business dedicated to representing and supporting law enforcement officers and first responders.

Bridget is a graduate of the University of Florida (Go Gators!) with a B.S. degree in Environmental Horticulture (yes, she really likes plants), and the University of St. Thomas School of Law in Miami, FL with a J.D. 

Bridget is licensed to practice law in Texas, Florida, New York and Louisiana, and lives in Houston, TX with her beautiful, smart, and fun husband and three kids.

Today I want you to think about direction and options in your life. Are you keeping your mind open to possibilities or options you have in front of you? It could be options in your organization. It could be options for your personal life. It could be options for treatment for addiction or mental health. Remember you always have options in the course you want to take. However, sometimes we don't keep our mind open. Remember change is going to happen whether you like it or not. 

So today please go forward and remember you are never stuck. There are always solutions to every problem or issue you might have. You just have to keep your mind open and take that first step.

I would love to hear from you. I love talking to first responders and organizations about resiliency, leadership and mental health for first responders. You can find my scheduling link below.

I am very happy this morning. Grateful to be alive and grateful for all the close family and friends that are in my life and continue to support and love me. As many of you know, not too long ago I was in a dark place. I was depressed, stressed, fearful and I wanted to take my life. It wasn't until I reached out to my network that I found the place I needed to be. The Shatterproof program for first responders at FHE saved my life. 

 

I love life now and I am excited for what the future holds for me. I am no longer fearful about what I can't control. I focus on what I can control and I take it day by day. My treatment taught me the tools to guide me along the way. 

 

My new mission is to help the first responder / veteran communities more than I have been. Through my public speaking, coaching and podcast I hope to help in more of a direct way. You can find more information about these at www.cjevolution.com 

 

If you are suffering or you know someone who is please reach out to TRUSTED friends and family. If you need information about Shatterproof in FL you can find it here: SHATTERPROOF@FHE First Responders’ Addiction Treatment Program (fherehab.com)

 

If you want to reach out to me directly you can find my contact information at www.cjevolution.com My cell number is: 303.960.0819

 

One of my favorite quotes is by Martin Luther King, JR. " You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step." 

 

Go out and conquer your day.

We all get in a funk. We all go through difficult times. The one thing I am learning is that self-pity is a dangerous cycle that will keep you in the rabbit hole. Self pity does absolutely nothing for you and where you want to go in your life. Self pity gives you more self pity. How do you get out of this cycle? One way is to practice gratitude. It might be hard at first, but gratitude is the foundation where everything else is built. 

Stop your self pity and start your growth.
