The tale of two moons is a journey towards better golf! As my darling wife and I returned home from visiting our daughter and her husband, I was struck by the two moons we saw on our trip. It was hard to believe they were the same celestial body because of their diverse nature.
As we set out on our 1629 km (1012 Miles) drive, we saw the most beautiful orange moon! It had a majestic haze that seemed to emit hope to everyone. It filled the star speckled sky with radiance. It caught our attention and I mentioned it several times as we drove along the dark highways towards home.
Upon arriving at the end of our trip, I noticed the moon again. Although it was still an hour before sunset, the moon was shining brightly in the daytime sky. It was sharp and focused. It reminded me of a lighthouse; a beacon of clarity, shining for all to see. It was determined to outshine the sun and stay its course regardless of the challenges it faced.
These two moons are helping me shape my golf plan for 2015. Right now, my mind is full of hope, general ideas, and anticipation of what is to come. In the house of the first moon, I am molding my thoughts with no limitations. I am envisioning my goals and the positive aspects of 2015 on the links.
Transitioning towards the second moon will happen, but not until I have experienced all of what the first moon has to offer. In the second moon, I will focus on how to accomplish my goals. I will develop a clarity and single-mindedness that will drive my efforts in the same direction. Like the second moon, I will know what I have to do to succeed in golf this year and not be afraid to go for it.
This is the start of my new golfing season. Like other years, it is time to develop my goals, develop my plan, and execute my plan. As you can see through my tone, I am taking full responsibility and accountability for the success of my plan. I am, however, not shy to ask for support and advice from you the reader, other confidants, experts or even strangers. My view is: the more we talk and interact about golf, the more I learn. The more I learn, the better I play. The better I play, the more fun golf becomes. The more fun I have at golf, the more I talk…… I think you get the picture!
The tale of two moons is my first step towards an awesome 2015 golf season. I feel enthusiastic, inspired, and empowered to be successful. I am expecting a fantastic journey and look forward to sharing it with all who want to listen.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
