“Life, like golf, is a game of infinite abundance not scarcity. All players come to the course with their own unique strengths and weaknesses.” – The Caddie Daddy
One of mysteries, frustrations, ultimate joys of golf is that it’s never the same twice, even between swings, and it must be played one shot at a time. You survey all the hazards from the tee and try to keep in the fairway, always try to avoid your ‘miss’, play to the middle of the green most of time, and hope to have a putt for par. But, taking a risk can sometimes lead to the shot of the round and result in birdie or better. And when it doesn’t, a good player will take note and then forget before the next shot. Sounds a LOT like life to me folks. No two days, hours, minutes are the same. And we must live one minute at a time, in the moment, present. We all, for the most part, try to avoid troubling situations, just stay in the fairway, enjoy the walk and try to have a normal life that makes us happy. Maybe we can be fortunate enough to take the right risks and reap a tremendous success, but avoid dwelling on the times the ball doesn’t drop our way. Funny, I learn something about myself on the golf course just about every time I play. See you on the course!
