Simone Biles is staying positive in what can only be the most difficult time of her life.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that the gymnast’s brother, Tevin Biles-Thomas, was arrested and charged for a murder that left three people dead. The news came as a shock, but Biles looks to be in good spirits based on her latest Instagram photo.

On Sunday, the gold medal winner took to social media to post a photo with two friends where the three girls smile for the camera. The three are in tight shirts and short shorts for the summer weather and appear to be having a nice day.

The photo is captioned, “girls day to drink happy thoughts.”

girls day to drink happy thoughts👯‍♀️

A post shared by Simone Biles (@simonebiles) on

Nothing wrong with happy thoughts…and drinking, right? Especially when you have two friends right there to keep the strength going.

Biles’ boyfriend Stacey Ervin Jr. commented on the photo, “Wow! Y’all better slay.”

Biles-Thomas was arrested last Thursday. According to E! News, he was charged with murder, voluntary manslaughter, felonious assault and perjury. He is reportedly being held without bail in the Liberty County, Georgia jail and is set for court on September 13.

The gymnast has stayed quiet about her brother since the news broke out. Given her fame and inspirational charisma, it will probably be while before she comes forward with a statement about this…if ever. We already know what’s happening so a statement isn’t necessary- as long as she has a support team, that’s all that matters.
