Pondering on Where to Go Next

Have you ever sat down, tried to turned off all the noise, put your phone on silent mode and just thought about what is next? Of course most of us have pondered the big decisions in life, but what about the smaller decisions that affect your life? Have you really given that much thought lately?

Daily, I like to sit in a room to meditate and think. Many times my thoughts revolve around my health and happiness. I use focused intent and positive affirmations to help chart my life’s journey. I find that just 20 minutes makes all the difference in the world to my emotional state. During this time of quiet reflection,  I like to think about where my life’s journey will go next.

I believe that things happen for a reason (although I do not always understand them) and we meet people or have experiences because we manifest them through our thoughts and actions. This is a philosophy that keeps me happy and grateful everyday.

You are likely thinking that this is all great, but what does this have to do about golf?

In case you did not realize, Golf is a passion of mine. I enjoy all aspects of this sport.I like being in the outdoors walking the green fairways, hearing the sounds of birds, and breathing the fresh air. I enjoy talking about golf and to try figure out the best ‘swing’ for me to reach my goal of being a scratch golfer. I like meeting new people and experiencing the joys of playing with old friends. But, I am at a bit of crossroads.

Where to go from here, what is next? This might seem to be an odd question, but with 2015 in the books, I like to start thinking and preparing for what is next. Do I continue to blog about golf? Do I cut back on golf and focus on other, possibly fun, areas of life? Do I increase my time about golf? Do I change nothing? So many questions, so many thoughts!

I obviously do not have an answer at this moment because I would share it if I did. I do know that, at least for the time being, I will continue to learn and grow my knowledge about golf. As winter freeze approaches, I will have more time to think and ponder about the future. Regardless of what I decide, I know one thing for certain: I will always be grateful!

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

  1. Jim,

    This is a great question to be asking ourselves. It is important to sit back and reflect, as we can lose sight of what is important to us when we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life. Sitting back and reflecting will no doubt keep you balanced and focused. I look forward to hearing more!

  2. This is a fantastic post Jim. I like for many reasons – I’ve followed you for some time and appreciate what the game means to you, it is well written, it touches on important issues, and, I’ve been thinking the same thing. And it is not an easy question to answer. I hope to embark on my own purposeful reflection process this month. I’m playing a casual round with two friends today and will ask them their plans for the off season. The quickest answer I have now is a desire to read more about the game. I really appreciate you writing this. After a successful and enjoyable season it is a good question to reflect on.
    Cheers, Mike
