After taking time off to focus on her mental health, gymnast Gabby Douglas is back and she has her eyes on the 2024 Paris Olympics!

You may recall that it was nearly a year ago that the 27-year-old Olympian took to social media to announce she would be taking time off.

On Thursday, Gabby Douglas returned to Instagram to share she has done the work to heal and she now has “found peace.”

hey guys
long time no post

as you all know i stepped back from
the socials and in that time i did a lot of journaling, reflecting, soul searching
and found myself back where it all began.

it’s so easy to suppress and run away from facing darkness and fears

for many years, i’ve had an ache in my heart
but i didn’t want to keep carrying anger, pain, sadness, or regret and through my tears and hurt, i’ve found peace.

i wanted to find the joy again for the sport that i absolutely love doing.

i know i have a huge task ahead of me and i am beyond grateful and excited to get back out on the floor

and even more grateful for all of your support and love. it truly means so much🖤there’s so much to be said but for now….💪 😎let’s do this #2024

See her original post below.
