Finding Your Inner Golfer

There are golfers that play golf, play golf, and play golf. You can not hear the inflection in my voice as you read the first line, but if you think about it……there are three different state of golfer. Every athlete has an inner athlete trying to work its way to the surface. Sometimes the journey is a challenging and other times it is a natural progression. Well, golfers are exactly the same. The challenge I have found during my journey was determining the type of player that best suit my mental and physical capabilities. Finding my inner golfer was a journey, but I think I have a handle on it now.

Golf Is Frustrating

Every golfer has experienced some level of frustration on the golf course. As amateurs, our frustration generally increases when our expectations eclipse our results. I know that when I hit the links I expect to hit all my shots clear and on line. Of course, that is rarely the case, but I am not the only one in this boat.

Forgetting to Keep Positive On the Golf Course

From time to time I forget that keeping positive and grateful is how I like to experience any round of golf. I sometimes catch myself focusing on the wrong things. I am more concerned with what I am doing wrong than what I am doing right. It is a negative spiral that I try to avoid at all costs. Unfortunately…..

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!
