Just like any sport loving individual, I’ve been watching the Olympics. A lot. Seriously, I didn’t know it was possible to have the TV on for 10 hours a day and not have your brain explode. I’m not much for TV watching these days, so it’s definitely a unique experience for me.
Olympics is an amazing event. I love seeing all of the athletes come out and compete in events I didn’t know even existed on an Olympic level. My favorite part is finding out about athletes. I love cheering for someone, then getting on Youtube and watching their story unfold. The before, the training, the tears and sweat that goes into every event. I feel so proud of these individuals, like they’re my friends who are out there competing, not strangers.
I love seeing people succeed. I love cheering them on, holding my breath as they race to that finishing line. (GO TEAM RYAN!) :) Sorry, had to throw that in.
I think this is partly why I love the book and blogging community so much. We are all cheerleaders here, pushing each other to do better, to be better. Sure, my family and friends are here to keep me motivated. I couldn’t be more thankful for the support they provide. But there are also those who I’ve never met in “real” life that take the time to cheer me on.
Authors are rockstars. Bloggers are rockstars. These are the people that keep me going, that take the time to stop by and read a review or answer a tweet. It’s like we’re our own Olympics team, pushing each other to win that gold medal of success. For that, I am thankful to be part of this community. I try my best to be the support others and I thank you for doing the same to me!
You all deserve gold medals for awesomeness! *Hands out medals*
