The late nights started on Friday, August 5.
Those late nights can only be attributed to one thing.
Yep, the Olympics!
They have been the reason that I've gotten limited sleep and why coffee has been at my beck and call all day long.
I feel like an emotional wreck as I'm watching the U.S. athletes. My heart pounds for them, and I know that when I stand up down the stretch of different races that I'm willing our athletes to win.
Frankly, it's exhausting! :)
I'm in awe of their talent, work ethic, and dedication. The hours and years they devote to their sports are incredible. Whether they medal or not, to be an Olympic athlete is an honor in itself.
But each time a gold medal is earned and I hear the National Anthem, my heart swells just a little bit more with pride.
Yeah, these late nights are definitely worth it!
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
