This past weekend, Karly Shorr – who not so long ago was a student at our own Milford High School here in Milford, Michigan – placed 6th in Slopestyle Snowboarding. On Twitter, she tweeted: “6th place at the Olympics… Not too shabby for a 19 year old. Could not be more stoked…” It’s inspiring to see athletes excel like this.
My colleague Tim Mitchinson, a Health Blogger in Illinois, also inspired by Olympic performances, wrote a nice blog post today about ways in our lives to “take it to the next level.” Specifically, he talks about thought and character and the qualities that, taken to the next level in our lives, may have health-giving properties.
Here is an excerpt:
“Allowing our thought to be guided spiritually can help any one of us to ‘take it to the next level’ – whether we are an athlete, a patient, a caregiver or simply someone looking to overcome limitations in some area of life.“
A nice – and timely – read: Taking personal bests to “the next level”.
