Pull up a seat and listen. Being a part of the conversation means listening to understand. Not listening to respond. This very simple practice is needed now more than ever. Don’t pivot or deflect from the much needed conversation. Progress only happens when we acknowledge the problem itself!

Life is not about what I've done, what I should've done, what I could've done... it's about what I can do and what I WILL DO! What are you doing?

@theorossi is most notably known for his role as Juan Carlos “Juice” Ortiz on FX’s Sons of Anarchy, and he also starred in Netflix’s Marvel series Luke Cage. He is a father, husband, a friend to me, and just an overall good dude. Theo is filled with so much wisdom, so be prepared to hit pause, rewind and take in what he’s saying. His rebirth story comes with hardship, loss, and abandonment, but he also has a huge appreciation of life and living it to its fullest.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Rebirth #RebirthwithJRMartinez #Sonsofanarchy #Wisdom #Actor #reapercrew #SOA #LukeCage #Movie #NewPodcastAlert #Podcast #ApplePodcasts #Spotify #TuneIn #Sticher #Motivation #Inspiration
