#PrepWithPurpose -- Day Nine: Victims of the Orlando Attack

For backstory on what #PrepWithPurpose is all about please read the blog entry and/or Instagram Post.

Hello World,

As we go about the motions of our day-to-day life it is easy to forget how fragile and uncertain life is. Until someone we care about is suddenly gone, or we or someone we love is diagnosed with a life threatening illness, or a tragedy such as the mass shooting in Orlando happens...we tend to forget that life doesn't come with a guarantee. NONE of us can be certain of another breath.

Like many, my heart is so heavy for the victims of the attack in Orlando. It's all I can think about. So it goes without saying that today's PREP WITH PURPOSE will be in honor of the dozens of victims fighting for their lives and in memory of the lives taken in this senseless tragedy.

Prep With Purpose -- Day Nine: #PrayForOrlando

I will not take this day for granted. With every breath I will be grateful. Every ounce of energy I put into my workout will be in honor of those fighting for life after this senseless act of hate and terror.
One moment these victims were smiling, dancing, loving, LIVING ... and the next GONE ... or critically injured and fighting for life. It could happen to any of us...at any second. 

Let us aim to never never put off "until tomorrow" what is important to us today. I pray that we shift our focus from the  artificial things we think matter and fill each day with what brings joy into our lives and the lives of others. 

LIFE is only once lived and at any moment it can be gone.

God Speed my friends.... 

I hope you are joining me on this prayer journey as I prep for #TeamU on July 1st & 2nd! If you are please post/share and use the hashtag #PrepWithPurpose! Let's get a huge prayer chain going and in the process maybe make the sport of bodybuilding less about "me, me, me" and a little more about helping others! Our motivation doesn't have to come from ONLY ourselves!

If you know anyone that needs urgent or ongoing prayer for any physical reason please email me all the information and a picture (or a few) to simplystacyfitness@yahoo.com.
