It was a long day of travel, golf and sunburns…….ouch. I’m sitting here exhausted more from having too much sun then anything else, watching Gilmore Girls of course and reflecting on what I felt on the course today.
This past August was my last competitive round, and I walked away from it at a loss. Thankfully in the months to follow I was able to reflect and move forward, but today for a bit I felt like I went back in time. Nerves in my hands, heaviness in the chest and apprehension. Instead of fighting these feelings today like I did this past fall, I instead worked on acknowledging them and replacing with positives.
Today was also a reminder that golf will not define me.
With these thoughts in mind, it was fitting that Dr. Bhrett McCabe posted this:
“Your purpose in life isn’t determined or defined by what you do or a job description but rather by the nature you impact those around you.”
Tomorrow’s goals: To play with gratitude and a light heart. To embrace every feeling that I experience and appreciate that I get the opportunity to have that adrenaline flowing. To look up at the beautiful blue sky and take deep breathes, one step at a time.
