I once read a quote that said, “Everything will be ok in the end. If it’s not ok, it’s not the end”. Recently, it has really hit home for me.
It’s been a long break since I last posted on this site and I have been through a bit of a transition period in the last few months. I have spoken to a few people who have questioned if the last surgery was it for me, and I just wanted to clarify that it’s not. In saying that though, I have decided to take a little more time to heal, rehab and prepare to play competitively again. My intention and plan is to begin playing professional events towards the end of this year.
I know a few people have been doubtful as to whether continuing to pursue golf has been a good idea for me and I do understand the criticism of my choices. I do want to say a little in regards to these types of comments, but more so aimed towards the people who have consistently been supportive of me over the years. Throughout your life a lot of people are going to judge what you do, compare you to others and have a perceived idea of what life should consist of and how it should be approached. I just want to tell you all that these opinions are irrelevant. The only opinion that should really matter to you is your own. Life isn’t meant to be lived in a specific way, but instead is meant to be lived the way you want it to. Life should be explored and you should go out there to find what you want and what you love. I have been fortunate enough to discover a lot of these things at a considerably young age and a lot of the reason for this is because of advice (like this) people close have given to me over the years. Not everyone is equipped to achieve the same goals, but every single person has a unique quality that makes them different, valuable and essentially, makes them happy. You need to find out what that is for you, pursue it and enjoy it. There is no one that can tell you what that is for you and there is no one who can tell you what is in store for you and your life.
With that being said, I will continue to work towards my goals with golf and am deeply excited for the plan I have ahead of me. I appreciate everyone who has stood by me through all this and would hope to have your continued support going forward. I feel so fortunate for having the people around me that I do, more so now than ever. My plan is to show you all that in the near future to come.
This is not the end for me!
