Here is one of my favorite positive quotes for the #bookfitnesschallenge ⛸ Michelle Kwan was my favorite skater growing up. I think the idea behind this quote applies to more than just sports. All accomplishments are worthy of celebrating and being proud of, whether you won a silver or got out of bed today. | #bfcr2 #bfc | @cobwebmoth @KathyWheeler @Megabooks @RachelO @Trashcanman @Emilymdxn @TheEllieMo

hermyknee I love this! Michelle Kwan was my favorite skater growing up, too! 8mo
Megabooks I loved Michelle Kwan! I hope she‘s happy whatever she‘s doing now. She almost went to the olympics at 14 and then went to like the next 3! Amazing woman. 8mo
KathyWheeler I always loved that she said this. People sometimes acts like a silver or bronze medal is a loss, which is just plain ridiculous. 8mo

wanderinglynn That is an excellent quote. And exactly what we‘re focused on this round. Thanks for sharing! 🙌🏻 8mo
wanderinglynn @KathyWheeler totally agree! Not only did she win the silver, she WENT TO THE OLYMPICS! Just getting to go is a HUGE win in my books because what, less than 1% ever go to the Olympics? 8mo
Charityann I love watching figure skating, and Michelle Kwan was one of my favorites.😊⛸📚 8mo
KathyWheeler @wanderinglynn I know! That is such a fantastic accomplishment that I view them all as winners for just going. 8mo
TheEllieMo That‘s an excellent quote, and it‘s also just reminded me of one of my favourite pictures, which I may post in a minute, even though it‘s too late now for the photo challenge 🙄 8mo
RachelO Love this! 8mo
Emilymdxn This is amazing and a great thing to keep in mind for all of us! Thank you for sharing 8mo

For #uncannyoctober day 10, I have to choose figure skating! I skated from ages 4-16, and just picked it up again this February...now at age 25. I am still able to land all my double jumps, and I'm currently working on a senior freestyle program to pass my final level. I am absolutely thrilled to be on the ice again ⛸ The picture is from an exhibition I did last Saturday! #nonreadingpursuits

DGRachel Awesome! 2y
