Serena Williams Has the Most Inspiring Message to Close Out 2018
Proving that she's the ultimate multi-tasking mom, Serena Williams posted a set of photos that show her literally juggling motherhood and her 9 to 5. In the superstar's latest Instagram post, Williams offers up some inspiring words to her followers about starting 2019 with a positive attitude and is proving to everyone that she's taking her words to heart.
In the snapshots, she's holding her daughter Olympia while doing her warm-up stretches. The caption explains that the little one "simply needed mama's love" and Williams wasn't going to deny her, even if it meant incorporating her 15-month-old daughter into her routine.
"As I head into next year it's not about what we can do it’s what we MUST do as working moms and working dads. Anything is possible. I am getting ready for the first match of the year and my dear sweet baby @olympiaohanian was tired and sad and simply needed mama’s love," she wrote. "So if it means warming up and stretching while holding my baby that’s what #thismama will do."
Williams went on to tell her followers that they inspire her as much as she inspires them. Though many of them aren't balancing being a world-class athlete with parenthood, their stories do let her know that finding some sort of equilibrium is possible.
"My fellow moms and dads working- or stay home it’s equally as intense- but you inspire me," Williams continued. "Hearing your stories makes me know I can do this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
Since Olympia's birth back in September 2017, Williams has been outspoken about how she's struggling to maintain her business, continue her dominance on the court, and being the best mom she can be. She went on to tell People that it's not all bad, though, and she sees it as one more challenge that she's ready to take on. She ended her post with a bold call to action for her followers. Williams is set to make 2019 the best ever and hopes that her fans will do the same.
"This year is to you! What are some things you had to do while working? #thismama #thisdaddy," she wrote.
