"Anyone who is steady in his determination for the advanced stage of spiritual realization and can equally tolerate the onslaughts of distress and happiness is certainly a person eligible for liberation." - Bhagavad Gita
I made the biggest mistake of my life in 2012 and committed a crime that has haunted me and broken me down ever since. I was sentenced to 13 months in prison and placed on community corrections. Between various probation violations and selfish choices I served every single day of those 13 months in county jail. I lost my father, an unborn daughter, relationships and a lot of trust from my family while incarcerated. It was the single hardest thing I have ever endured but I can say that I did my time like a man and kept my head held high. I was nothing but respectful and authentic to every single person I shared a cell with and each and every member of the jail staff. I never stepped out of line, I never told on anybody and I said please and thank you every single time a CO served me a meal or took me to court or did something as simple as getting me Q-tips. I walked out of county jail today free and clear and with a feeling that I could finally achieve happiness for myself. I have so much to be grateful for. God is good and his love is infinite. I don't know how to return that love but I am moved to tears at the realization he has never left my side. Now THATS gangsta. 😋
Let's get em, Jo!
