In honor of it being International Yoga Day, here is something that I tried once for fun although I don't know if you're technically supposed to do yoga on a bosu-ball 🤷🏼‍♀️ #yogiwannabe #yoga #orisit #stillfun #tryingnewthings #internationalyogaday #fitgirl #training

Happy Fathers Day to all the fathers out there and of course a special one to mine. Two things my dad had said to me over the years stick out in my mind. •

The first is my dad's advice before every match: "go full blast and never give up". Thanks, dad 👌🏼💪🏼 •

The second is something he said to me weeks after I won the Olympics: "If I could go back in time and do it all over again, I would never let you wrestle." Initially I was kind of annoyed at this comment and couldn't comprehend why he would say that, I thought I made him proud? But then he said "I would have rather you stayed close to home so we could have spent more time together, that's all I really want" •

My dad embodies sacrificial love. He's always supported and sacrificed his dream for my dream simply because he loves me. I can't ever thank him enough for setting such a great example for me. To my first love--thank you, Dad.

"The key to persevering through seasons of pruning is remaining confident in God's purpose". - @stevenfurtick 🙌🏼 I always want to be better than the person I was yesterday. I want to grow to become the woman God has called me to be. I feel I often fail all the tests to do so, though.

Growth is hard and messy. Often, I prefer to tell God how I think this "growing process" should look like--and it normally doesn't involve as many (if any😳) trials, tests and challenges. I normally envision the road to maturity and character-building as being encouraging, loving and hopefully relatively easy (just being honest). I've done some of my best growing in seasons of setbacks. Sometimes something seemingly bad happens and I'm so quick to think "why me" or "this isn't what I want"...I don't pause enough to just say "thank you, God, for what you will teach me in this trial and for shaping me"

I've felt a pressure lately to be better but to get there without making any mistakes, or without anyone seeing me have a bad day or attitude. I'm the champ so I'm not supposed to have or show weaknesses at this point. It's so silly and I know better than to have this mindset.

But I'm sharing this messy post in faith, because I believe we relate to each other in our struggles and we must be vulnerable in order to connect. Maybe others are going through a trial or growing phase too..and maybe only posting the highlights of my days isn't actually very encouraging or relatable for someone. Maybe you feel like you're stuck in situation where your circumstances aren't changing, and like me, you're beginning to realize the only thing left is to change one's self.
So here's to new lessons, new mistakes, new attempts at getting it right, not giving up, being authentic, and most importantly being so thankful that God's purpose and plans are way better than our own. He'll bring us through it. We're more than conquerors ❤️ #TGIF #faith #jesus

One week away from our first World Team training camp, and twelve weeks away from the World Championships in Paris 🔥🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸#greatteam #2017WorldTeam

All gave some, some gave all. Thank you to the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom 🇺🇸 #memorialday

#throwbackthursday @perezsalonstudio @nikkifiveash always love the work they do with my hair. Great people with great skills! Love when I can come back to Maryland and get my hair done here ❤️

Evening of Wishes Gala last night for the Make a Wish Foundation. So nice to see my parents and have them there ❤️ Thank you @tossamanbkwds and Laura for having me out. It's inspiring to see what you both have done for this organization!

The Make a Wish Foundation is truly remarkable... they are giving hope, strength, and joy to these children who go through immense struggles battling for their lives. One story touched me deeply, that of Kaheem's. His biggest wish was to be a superhero and help people. What an incredible young boy, he is definitely my superhero ❤️ 71% of Wish Kids believe that their life had been saved
94% believe their family was strengthened
88% of medical staff believe a wish can positively affect a child’s health #makeawish #impactinglives

First time watching ballet live last night..what an amazing show! Truly an incredible display of athleticism and grace from the performers. After we went back stage and learned about the production efforts and what goes on behind the scenes. It's amazing how much goes into each show that we don't see or know about. Thank you @andyfbarth for this experience
Fun fact: the curtain is made of gold silk and weighs a thousand pounds (and is the largest in the world💪🏼)

Can't believe @steveaoki saw the wrestlers perform, then the wrestlers saw him perform! So great to meet you and so so stoked we also got to see you live!! 🤗🙈🤼‍♀️ So amazing! thanks Steve!!! #beatthestreets #wrestling #marqueenightclub #aokiisawesome

Thank you for everyone who put this together and for everyone who came out and supported such a great cause 📸: @tony_rotundo_wrestling #bts #timessquare #newyork #teamusa #vs #teamjapan
