Olympian Inspiration


Usain Bolt

Have you been watching the Olympics? I’ve been tearing up while watching it pretty much every night (am I alone on this?). I love watching the swimming, diving, volleyball, and track events although my favorite, is gymnastics. I did gymnastics for a couple of years when I was a kid before switching to dance. I was never nearly as talented as the Final Five, but I still remember the time, effort, training it took. I don’t know what makes this year’s Olympics so special, but I’ve been feeling a surge of encouragement and motivation from watching the events. Those athletes spend so much time devoted to being the best in their sport. As super human as some of the athletes look they’re also human and would have gone through times of difficulty questioning themselves.

When I was in college I remember being┬áknee-deep in homework and essays wanting to throw in the towel. I’m so grateful to have had my loving family and friends there to support me! Now as I transition from student to career woman I’m faced with new challenges, but I’m really looking forward to whatever lays ahead. Hope you have a great weekend.

“I don’t run away from challenges because I am afraid. Instead, I run toward it because the only way to escape fear is to trample it beneath your feet.” -Nadia Comaneci
