For the many law enforcement families that are suffering from the loss of their officers, some just before the holidays, know that you are not forgotten. It seems we are hearing so frequently of the loss of officers and seeing departments across the nation support one another.
In NJ this week there was another tragic loss of a young trooper, one who was just beginning his life with his new wife of just a few short months. There's no doubt great confusion and sadness, accompanies pride for his service and dedication.
The families of troops, law enforcement, and firefighters carry a tremendous amount of courage to send their loved ones out into the field each day, never sure if today will be the day they don't return. It can be hard to let go when you feel this insatiable need to hold onto them so tightly, but yet you allow them to do what it is they do best and what it is they have a passion and a calling for.
Finding the quiet space within, allowing yourself to feel as you feel is important. This is where meditation can teach us to not judge our feelings, but to simply embrace them. We don't have to be any particular way. We just have to be where we are, as we are, taking one step at a time.
