There’s no question of if Aly Raisman is an inspirational person, we can tell you that she 100% is — and she keeps on proving it with an amazing essay.
The Olympic gymnast wrote for Elle magazine about positivity in just not her body, but in life.
“I saw in an interview one time, someone said instead of picking myself apart in the mirror, which is what so many people do, I start the day by telling myself that I look good and to focus on being a good person, working hard, and being smart and that makes me feel more beautiful and more confident,” Aly writes for the glossy.
“When you feel confident in the kind of person you are, everything else falls into place.”
She adds, “But you can’t rely on someone else to make you feel confident. You have to figure it out from within. Sometimes people expect others to make them feel confident and there is so much pressure if you’re in a relationship [for] the other person has to make you feel confident, but you have to love yourself first before you can really be happy.”

2016 is coming to a close, and with that comes list after list of bests —- the best actors, the best singers, the best emerging talent of the year.
But, let’s face it, there have been some seriously weird/sad/random moments moments that had they not existed, the celebrity entertainment world would definitely be a better place.
The following sucks irrefutably fall in to 2016’s con column.
Here are a smattering of this year’s happenings that we most wish we could take back:
1. The bitterness that followed Fifth Harmony losing Camila Cabello
Feelings were hurt all around when Camila Cabello decided to leave Fifth Harmony, but the public accusations that followed had Harmonizers taking sides. Understandably disappointed Lauren Jauregui, Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane and Normani Kordei put out a public statement before Camila had the chance to make the announcement herself. Camila said she was shocked at the move and released her own statement, which gave a brief version of her side of the story… and it kept going. The 5H split wasn’t totally shocking — after all, both Camila and Lauren were both publicly working on side projects — but we hope that time can heal the wounds between these former besties.
2. Austin & Ally ending
January 10 marked a rocky start to the New Year with everyone’s favorite Disney Channel coupleAustin & Ally — aka Laura Marano and Ross Lynch — gracing our screens one last time. The show’s exit left a gaping void in our lives that has yet to be filled by any amount of ice-cream or Hannah Montana reruns.

Aly Raisman and Colton Underwood are totally dating after being introduced on Twitter!
The 22-year-old Olympic gymnast and the 24-year-old football player made their red carpet debut at the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year Awards on Monday evening (December 12) in Los Angeles.
Earlier this year, Colton famously asked Aly out over social media, suggesting they go on a date with his teammate Andrew East, who is married to retired gymnast Shawn Johnson.
It looks like things went well after the date because the couple is still going strong!
“We happened to be both in Denver at the same time. I was there for less than 12 hours, he was flying in for just a few days. It just ended up working perfectly,” Aly explained to People, noting that they’ve “kept it quiet for a while.”
Aly added that Colton met her family on their second date and she’s met his as well!
We love to see that things worked out for these two!
Meryl Davis wants fashion and fitness brands to use actual athletes for their campaigns.
Just days after Bella Hadid scored a Nike campaign for their new collection, Meryl — who won a gold medal at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics — clapped back at Nike and Puma all in the same post, while giving praise to Reebok.
“I’ll take the one promoted by the athlete please,” Meryl wrote with a side-by-side-by-side with Bella, Kylie Jenner and gymnast Aly Raisman.
While JJJ is psyched for Bella grabbing a Nike campaign, we def agree with Meryl that fitness brands should show more athletes.
