The Power of Love

It’s unfortunate that another tragedy would spark me to write and share another blog post.

This weekend, another mass shooting took place in Orlando, Florida inside a gay club. There were 50 victims and 53 injured. Investigators say it’s more of a hate crime. Some speculate that it may be part of a terrorist attack. All I know now is that 50 families are truly impacted, and the spirit of hate seems to be winning.


What does this have to do with my health fitness journey? In order to love each other, you must love yourself first. Invest in yourself regarding your health and live your life! I have to remind myself of this, even when I don’t follow through on good eating habits and consistent workouts. Additionally, having healthy relationships are important. We need to remove ourselves from situations and people that don’t have our best interest at heart.


I just found out this morning that a friend and former colleague was killed back home within the same time frame that 50 people shot and killed in Orlando, FL. I’m truly going to miss him. He was a prime example of living and loving life to the fullest.

Love yourself. If we all do so, love can overcome hate in many circumstances. The songs shared here are dedicated to the memory of my friend, Mr. Dennis Stimpson. You will be missed.
