For a supermodel and mom like Gisele Bündchen, life is providing constant changes and challenges. It’s important to keep focus on what matters most.
That appears to be on her mind recently. The 40-year-old multi-talented star posted on Instagram on Monday, February 22, sharing a gorgeous picture of herself at sunset.
To no surprise, the post is wildly successful, racking up 278,000+ likes in just over two hours. Alongside the gorgeous seaside photo, Gisele captions the post:
“No one ever said learning was to be easy,” Gisele Bündchen wrote. “But it’s part of the process of evolving as a human being, and we all have to go through it. When I look back, I see that each difficult time brought an important lesson and a new perspective, a new way of looking at things.”
That reflection on hard times leads to the final part of her message, which she says explains who she is.
“So I chose to look at everything with gratitude because I wouldn’t be who I am today if hadn’t gone through all of it. #gratitude #lessons 🙏”
In addition, she also provided the message in her native Portuguese.
Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady Have Eventful 2021
This goes without saying, but 2021 has been off to a pretty great start for Gisele and husband Tom Brady.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback earned his seventh Super Bowl ring in his first season in Florida. The Bucs took down the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 to win their first title since 2002.
In the days since, Gisele and Tom and their kids have likely been celebrating and resting after a hectic NFL season happening mid-pandemic. But before that happened, some unique drama unfolded during Super Bowl LV.
In a fairly random and weird tweet, Randi Mahomes, the mother of Patrick Mahomes who Brady dueled against in the Super Bowl, tagged Gisele with a comment about the refereeing in the game.
“If you have to have the ref on your team is that really winning!!! @giseleofficial lol.”
Gisele had posted a few times during the game, but definitely nothing that warranted a random mention. Gisele never responded, so that probably tells you all you need to know.
After all, she was likely too busy celebrating.
