The Journey...Has just begun.

 The 2012 Olympic Women's Gymnastics All-Around Gold Medal Winner Gabby Douglas

As I was gearing up for my weekly The Certain Ones, radio interview, with special guest “The Journey.” Author Jamee Greene. I just received the news that Gabrielle “Gabby” Douglas has won, the 2012 Olympic Women's Gymnastics All-Around Gold Medal! This is winning for America! And also a historical landmark as, Gabby is now hailed as being the first woman of color to win this event! If you have been watching this young lady’s light shine, in the competition you’d witness her grit and determination to win the gold. Her performance has been acknowledged as almost flawless, with a score of 62.232.

The pictures that captures Gabby’s breakthrough performances, gives testament to this. Gabby isn’t called “The Flying Squirrel for just any reason, this young woman is true to the name. She is fast and incredibly flexible. Only 16 years of age, Gabby Douglas’ journey to get to where she is today; has been no easy feat. For her part, it took dedication, sacrifice, and practice, --and not focusing on the negative commentary of the naysayers. Gabby’s mother was hesitant to release her daughter at such a young so she could train with Liang Chow, the former coach of Olympic champion Shawn Johnson. Fast forward, this journey has only just begun for Gabby, endorsements and speaking engagements, I would surmise are certainly apart of Gabby’s journey.

“The Journey” by Jamee Greene is another powerful testimony that should not be missed check out her inspiring interview on The Certain Ones Online Radio Talk Show.  Your journey has just begun!

I am so blessed and inspired by Gabby's journey. The maturity that she has exhibitied is way beyond her biological years. I am so proud of her and look forward to seeing so much more from her. I also say "thank you" from my mother's heart to her mother. Often we must release our children in order for them to succeed.
