First of all, I don't watch television much these days since I've been catching up on a lot of reading. I'm getting left behind by my favorite authors who keep putting out new novels and I haven't even read all their previous releases yet. And then I get caught in the wave of newer writers whose books are drawing popular attention because they're being turned into movies (The Hunger Games and Twilight, for instance).
But the Summer Olympics are on and this year's games are really very exciting!!! I am so happy for and proud of our US teams that have accomplished so much together and as individuals. At the same time, I am also impressed by the successes also shared by the competitors. They are all amazing athletes!!! Kudos to all the athletes that trained so hard to make to the Olympics!!!
My second thought goes to Gabby Douglas, that amazing young lady who's getting a lot of attention in the field of gymnastics. She makes it look so easy - yet I know it's not. And wow! I am also impressed with her attitude. That's what I call a winning attitude...and I'm not talking about her attitude toward training. I'm talking about her attitude towards those people who are complaining about her hair. Good to see that she doesn't let negative comments about such a trivial matter like her hairstyle bother her.
As she told the Associated Press, 'I just made history and people are focused on my hair?' I, especially dig her last comment, "Nothing is going to change. I'm going to wear my hair like this during beam and bar finals. You might as well just stop talking about it." You go, girl!!!
