Good Bye 2019 – Hello Awesome Future

Many of us have specific transition days. Obviously, to embrace those days, there must be a closure day. And for me, today is one of those days. It allows me time to reflect on what was accomplished in the 365 days with an eye to what I want to create moving forward. So, as I say good bye to 2019, I am look forward to the 2020 golf season.

Thinking back to last years season (more detailed review to come), I basically am grateful for playing at all. After a crazy health scare in 2018, I enjoyed playing golf with my friends and embraced all the shots – good and bad. Yes, I wish I could have made a few more great shots, but overall I cannot complain. Complaining would not be fair to the joyous times I had on the links.

Having said that, it is time to say goodbye. As my golf game and life continues to evolve, I learned that any transition takes time and focused intent to make anything happen. This thought will be the cornerstone of my 2020 golf game. I will methodically approach changes and embrace the journey of change. Life on and off the links is going to be awesome!

On this final day of 2019, I have no regrets. Life is fantastic and I am encouraged to see what 2020 has to bring.

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

I for one do not support it, but understand the frustration that can occur from time to time.

Every Once In A While We Need to Hear From Jack Nicklaus

No words of wisdom today Mitch! But, I thought I would leave you with this:

Listening to Jack Nicklaus

It is funny that it only takes a poor swing or two to erode our golf confidence. I do not know about you, but I hate that!!!

Have a Terrific Thursday!
