The grass is greener…… On the golf course!

“Two men look out the same jail cell window. One see’s mud. The other see’s stars”

It has definitely been one of those years so far. A year to forget. A year to learn. A year to grow. And what I am beginning to realise is the importance of perception and the way you choose to see things. Any one situation that is purely a problem to one person, can be a complete blessing to another. 

Fortunately for me, I have one of those mum’s who sees the silver lining in every dark cloud. She is the definition of optimism. Some people think that her way of looking at life is naive and juvenile, but while everyone else is living frustrated wondering why things happen out here, she relaxes at the thought that the world is not meant to be understood, it is just meant to be lived. It’s an adventure and you accept everything including the bad because without it, good wouldn’t even exist. Her way of viewing life is such a great strength and I find myself constantly trying to be more accepting of the world as she is. Luckily, being surrounded by a special few who portray those same qualities, has truly kept my head above water. 

So I wanted to write this quick post for those people who have stood by me. For constantly reminding me of all the good in my life. For even actually being the good in my life. And for helping me find myself again in a time when I started to lose who I was. I truly realise now how much I have to be thankful for, and I still wouldn’t be able to see that today without you special few.

Thank you…… ❤️

    Alright, so I have been reading your story and following you for a short period of time! I admire your adversity and determination to continue to pursue your dreams! I too am 28, grew up in Pinehurst and looking to play on tour! Odds are stacked against us but hey….I’d rather build my own dream than have someone hire me to build theirs, right? Just wanted to shoot you a quick message to continue on!
