Guess who joined me for coffee this morning.... Alfredo!!! He looked good, was in great spirits and had a lot to talk about. I hadn’t seen him in a few weeks but I was glad to see he’s doing better 🙏🏼 . Alfredo always crosses my mind as I’m sure he does for most of you who have followed this friendship from the beginning. ☕️

Director Alden Foster and I are looking forward to presenting in front of the next graduating class of NYPD recruits👮🏻‍♂️👮🏽‍♀️👮🏾‍♂️👮🏻‍♀️. We started this campaign two years ago and I have to admit that the excitement never goes away. We get the call and immediately start preparing for the big day 📝 . Having this incredible platform and having an opportunity to positively impact these young officers lives so early in their careers is a blessing and something that I will always be grateful for. Can’t wait to meet y’all in a few weeks and just know... WE’LL BE BRINGING THAT FIRE🔥🔥🔥

Three generations with the eldest being 94 years young! My wife gets her amazing work ethic from both her parents but some of those genes trickled down from Great Grandma 👵🏻 She will leave people half her age in the dust. She lives on her own, takes care of her own landscaping (and mine if I don’t weed in a timely fashion lol), walks her own dogs and drives her own car. She is the sharpest 94 year old I know and has the memory of an elephant 🐘 . I don’t know about you but I love sitting with my elders and just listening to them talk. I love seeing their zest for life and can only hope to one day make it to that age in good health and happiness. She loves asking me Police related questions and picking my brain on current events involving law enforcement 🙏🏼 . On his particular day we were on a family bike ride and decided to stop by and say hello. She was happy to see us and we were just as happy to see her. Her smile says it all! Make sure you take care of your parents and grandparents. Our time here is so limited and every moment needs to be appreciated! God bless you all and thank you for reading🙏🏼❤️

If there’s one thing I’ve learned during my 37 years on earth is that life does go on 🌎 Way too often I witness people allowing their circumstances to dictate how they feel, how they live and more importantly how they choose to love. People suffer for months on end after a bad break up. People suffer for months on end when they don’t get the job they were hoping for. People suffer for months on end when things don’t go their way when they should take that time to create a shift in their lives. STOP feeling sorry for yourself and know that you matter... you are important and you are loved. God ALWAYS has a plan. Trust him. Have FAITH and LIVE YOUR LIFE! . No matter how many setbacks you’ve faced GET UP!! Get up, dust yourself off and try again... try as many times as you have to in order to succeed because just “existing” isn’t an option. It’s actually the worst thing you can do. You don’t get to experience how beautiful life is unless you change your mindset... even if it’s a beautiful mess, it’s still beautiful ❤️ . Waking up, commuting, working, going back home, & going to sleep can easily become a routine. But guess what... not implementing other activities during your day to help alleviate some of the stress or break up the monotony of your day is an option. You have control over that. My advice is to spend more time with your loved ones. Make time for your children. Dedicate an hour of your day to self improvement whether it’s reading a book, working out or going for a family walk. Invest in yourself and in the ones you love because one thing is for sure... you can either LIVE or you can EXIST. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this...

Last week I asked for people to submit the names of a child or family that they thought should receive tickets to go see the subway series between the Mets and the Yankees 🗽 Tons of names came in and each and every one of them was deserving however two families stood out to us. One was an 8 year old girl who’s mother passed away the day after Mother’s Day due to lupus. Her dad an is FDNY Lieutenant in Astoria, Queens and I was immediately touched by their story. I had every intention of sending her, her two older siblings and her father but unfortunately they already had very important plans for that day and couldn’t reschedule. . Lucky for me @bestpizzeriainbrooklyn made a call to the bullpen and said he had the perfect family. He told me about @johnny_jc46 and how he and his wife are raising two incredible kids, 8 year old JJ and 5 year old Gabriella. He mentioned how John and his wife are the epitome of great parenting, instilling morals and positive support in their children and that he knew they would be the perfect match for the tickets. I agreed and we set up a meeting where we surprised them with the tickets 🙌🏼 . I knew we had picked the right family as soon as I met them. They were so polite, so grateful and so excited to go cheer on their favorite team which have won a bunch of championships and yadda yadda yadda😫. Anyways that’s not whats important, what’s important is that they got to meet Chief Maddrey who immediately opened up his doors to them. As you can see from the pictures, Chief Maddrey is a natural at connecting with people and that’s what I admire about him the most. The family got to take home some @nypd swag and from what I’ve been told, Gabby hasn’t taken her NYPD hat off yet! . Side note: Being able to present this family with the subway series tickets, generously provided by @bestpizzeriainbrooklyn, in front of Michael Jr. was an added bonus! Love making him proud ❤️

Stop allowing your happiness to be defined by others actions. We go through life searching for “The One” but the reality is you have to be “The One” before you find “The One”. What if you found them and weren’t ready? Truth is most people wouldn’t know what to do if they found their soulmate because they haven’t gotten to know themselves 1st ☝🏼 . Fall in love with YOURSELF before ever falling in love with anyone else. Once you discover the best version of YOU, then you’ll be ready to share that humongous heart of yours ❤️Until then STOP searching... Know your worth... Get to know the most intimate parts of your soul... Get to know the deepest, most genuine desires of your heart... And become exactly who you consider “The One”. You’ll start to naturally attract what you put out into this world and that’s a beautiful thing 🌸 . Last but not least.... DO NOT IGNORE THE RED FLAGS ‼️ People will show you who they truly are if you just pay attention. Stop changing the narrative because of your selfish desire to rush the process. It has to be organic, don’t force things. You can’t fit a circle into a square no matter how hard you try... you’ll save yourself a lot of headache if you just pay attention🤔 Feel free to share, comment, tag someone etc 🙏🏼🌎

For the past 16 years of my short career, and my life in general, I’ve realized that quality time spent with loved ones is priceless. The impact it can potentially have on your relationships is immeasurable and shouldn’t be taken for granted. When I was younger, I thought like a kid and was all about hanging out. I never put a true value on my free time but now that I’m much older it’s different. There isn’t a free second that I wouldn’t want to spend next to my family. When you plant a seed you must water it in order for it to grow. “Watering” means dedicating time to your significant other, your children and your loved ones 🌱 . They say with age comes experience so I guess this is my two cents: TREASURE EVERY SINGLE MOMENT. They aren’t guaranteed and it life passes by way too fast 🙏🏼 I start my 17th year with the NYPD on July 1st. Seventeen years 😱... ask me where the time has gone and I don’t have an answer. It passed by in a flash!⚡️ Make sure you make it count 👊🏼😉

One of my favorite parts of doing presentations for the recruits in the academy is making new friends and following their journey from recruit to police officer. I get a front row seat as I witness their life long dreams being achieved right before my eyes. I attend as many police graduations as I can and always look forward to bumping into recruits that I’ve met. I look forward to making new friends at my next presentation later on this month 🙌🏼 . I happened to have met this particular police officer in the most unorthodox of places.... on a football field🧐. His little brother happened to be on my sons team which I coached. His dad found out I was a lieutenant in the NYPD and introduced us. Such a small world... such a great family... and here you have my throwback Thursday story 📝

This post is tough for me to write but it’s been a long time coming. Actually a year in the making since today marks the ONE year anniversary since receiving full custody of MJ. My prior relationship ended abruptly in 2010 when he was ripped out of my life a few weeks before his 1st birthday. I came home to an empty apt & for the first time in my life I hit rock bottom. The apt wasn’t the only thing empty. I was too but it was in my darkest moment when I realized how incredible God’s grace is. He provided clarity & comfort in a time of total confusion & despair🙏🏼 . In the weeks, months & years that followed I made the hour & 1/2 drive to pick him up on my days off & spend quality time together. We made every second count. However I still felt shame due to the stigma associated with having a failed marriage. I felt like I let myself down but promised that I would never let him down ❤️ . Four years later & in comes Elizabeth Grace. What a fitting middle name right?🙏🏼 She was, without a doubt, heaven sent. She provided stability, strength, focus, love, peace & joy. She put endless smiles on both our faces & provided calmness through the storms🏡 . Over the next few years we would enjoy becoming a FAMILY. I also kept my promise of never letting either of them down & shielding MJ from the “outside” chaos that existed. Liz did the same in a very maternal & instinctive way. All of that changed in July of 2016 & without providing too much detail I will say that MJ was once again ripped out of my life at the worst possible time, months from our wedding day 💔. Everything was put on hold & both Liz & her mom became my ROCKS🌄 . Long story short- MJ missed our wedding, honeymoon was cut short & for the next 8 months we were in court because I finally filed for FULL custody. On June 6, 2017 I realized everything we had gone through was for a PURPOSE. My test became my testimony & God shined his GRACE on me because I trusted him. He handpicked a woman that would be capable of enduring everything we did in our first years together & what was meant to BREAK us actually made us STRONGER 🙌🏼 . TRUST when things feel like they’re falling apart, they may be falling into place🙏🏼

Here you have a young man who is determined to smash every single dream he has set forth. I am so proud of him for not only graduating as a student/athlete from John Jay College but for also being a few months away from accomplishing another one of his life long dreams which is to become a New York City Police Officer 💯 . . . May God continue to bless you now and forever and may you continue on this righteous path to success. You have a great head on your shoulders and I am fortunate that I get to witness greatness unfolding right before my very eyes ✨ 😎

I am super proud of our boys for making it to the flag football championship two seasons in a row. This past Saturday they played their lil’ hearts out for the entire game during a sweltering hot day and gave it their all. Unfortunately we came up short as the other team scored on a last minute Hail Mary pass. It came during the last play of the game and they beat us in heartbreaking fashion💔 We took it as an opportunity to teach our young team a valuable life lesson on things not working out the way we want them to and how we should always hold our heads up high in the face of adversity. The message was well received and no tears were shed 💪🏼 . Side note: I received multiple compliments on the T-shirt I wore and I just want to say that I am honored to share this message of hope🙌🏼, peace✌🏼and love❤️everywhere I go. Love will always conquer the hate and light will always outshine the darkness 🙏🏼

My heart has never been as full as it is at this very moment and as I look back at my life I realize that every single setback was actually a stepping stone. You can’t connect the dots looking forward, only when you look back will it become clear how everything you’ve gone through has prepared you for this very moment 🙏🏼 . I can’t tell you how many nights I prayed for a woman that would appreciate the man that I am. A woman that I would eventually build a family with, create a home with and spend the rest of my days with. My heart is full because no matter what goes on in my life the one thing I can count on is the love of my children and my soulmate ❤️ . If you find yourself facing one of life’s many setbacks my advice to you is DON’T GIVE UP! I was once in your shoes and I promise things will get better if you just trust God. Trust his plans and the detours he takes you on. Let him be your navigation system. Trust that one day it will all make sense and in the meantime just enjoy the beauty of life 🌱 . Pictured here you have a lil girl that has stolen my heart. She is at an age now where she recognizes people and I can’t explain how amazing it feels when I get home from work and her smile is greeting me at the front door. Thank you God. I am blessed 🙏🏼 Tag someone that needs to hear this message and share your thoughts. PS don’t forget to swipe left to see more photos 😊

No amount of words could ever express what you mean to me and how you changed the course of my entire life. You made me a better father, a better son, a better brother and a better man. Your energy is so dope and so tangible that just being around you makes me feel like I’m on top of the world 🌎 . On May 28, 2014, during a romantic dinner at SHI restaurant, I asked you to be my girlfriend. I asked you to start a journey with me that neither one of us would ever regret. I asked you to put all of your trust into this Dominican kid from Corona who had become your best friend. I promised to protect your heart with mine and to never leave your side. Four years later , I’ve kept that promise and we’ve built such an incredibly beautiful life together. We laid a solid foundation based on trust, faith, communication, love and a ton of family values❤️ . I love you today 100x more than I loved you 4 years ago and I hope that with every year that passes, our love multiplies 🙏🏼 I have no idea how in the world I got so lucky but I have a hunch that God played a big role in connecting our paths. We were destined to meet Elizabeth Grace and no matter where this life takes us just know that you have my entire heart. The line “til death do us part” doesn’t apply to us because my promise to you is that even when I’m long gone and in heaven I’ll still be looking for you because you are my life partner and I’d choose YOU a thousand times over 🙏🏼 Happy Anniversary my L❤️VE 💞⚓️🙏🏼
