History-Making Olympian Simone Biles Gets Sweet Tweets From Mom
In the age of what seems to be a second dawning of a Civil Rights movement, Black excellence is soaring in spite of social and political atrocities. Black entrepreneurs, and most recently Olympians at the 2016 Rio Olympics have been making history, and headlines with groundbreaking performances.
In the likeness of Gabby Douglas, Simone Biles has made history-breaking records with innovative moves, that could only be named after her. At a total of 14 medals, of which 10 are gold, Simone Biles holds the record for most gold medals won by a female gymnast in the history of the World Championships.
To date, Simone is the most decorated American female gymnast in World Championships history.
As Simone prepares to continue her ground breaking Olympic gymnastics legacy in Rio, she does so with much support from family, friends and the whole United States.
One of Simone’s biggest fans has gained much attention with her heartwarming tweets to the Olympian: her mom Nellie Biles. Simone’s mom has continuously shown her daughter unwavering support and love, with the sweetest tweets ever! Nellie has stood by her daughter near and far with notes of love for Simone like, “long term goal is here/embrace the experience and have fun. I love you-mom.”
In a series of tweets over the course of her daughters Olympic ambitions and career, Nellie has openly shown her affections for her daughter, and Simone has always jumped (pun intended) at the chance to return the favor.
It goes without saying how impactful a mother’s love and support are when setting out to achieve a dream, short or long-term goal.
How many times have you left a goal or dream by the wayside, due to lack of support?
How often have you reached a personal milestone and felt a loss as to whom you could celebrate with?
Mom Nellie is a great example of what undying and unrelenting support looks like. Her genuine love and support for her daughter are the prototype of the foundation of supportive relationships.
It’s no surprise Nellie, and many other of Simone’s family are very proud of all her accomplishments. Nellie and Simone’s relationship is one to be admired. Whatever your familial situation may be, find and keep supportive people in your circle. Be a supportive person to those you care about, with words of encouragement. Hugs and words of support go a long way, but so do likes, shares, comments and tweets.
Sometimes being present in any form makes just the right impact.
