Like this one that inspires you to stay determined no matter what.
Or this one that shows us just how far the United States has come in the LGBTQ World.

Can’t forget the ones where you get just a little jealous, like when Katie Couric got a pic with the amazing Ryan Lochte.
Or the ones that make you feel warm and fuzzy inside, like when Gabby Douglas shared a moment with her loved ones 💖
And ones like this with Simone Biles’ infectious smile and cute little dance reassuring you that everything’s gonna be okay☺
Even the ones that have you clenching your fists in anticipation as you live vicariously through Olympian parents.
Surely can’t forget the disgusted tweets that show us this mess of a pool which has mysteriously turned greener and greener with each passing day.
Ones like this make you cringe in pain, and really feel for these athletes who’ve spent their entire lives training, only to falter during competition.
But most of all, ones like this that remind us that every little victory counts, and we’re all winners, as long as we work hard and do our best! ✌
