This is the weekend of the Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia. It brings back a fun memory for our family. My husband is a fan of golf, especially watching the Masters Tournament. On one of our trips to Georgia, I thought it would be fun for him to see the golf course and at least buy a souvenir from the gift shop. Needless to say, I was very naïve, as soon as we entered the grounds we were escorted out, as my family had predicted would happen. It is now a funny memory that mom thought she could get the family into Augusta!
Even though I don’t care one way or another about golf, I do like to watch part of it. The course alone is beautiful and worth seeing, but mostly it peaks my curiosity about what it takes to be an expert in the game of golf, or anything for that matter.
We all want to do our best and be our best however, it does not come without work on our part. It gets me thinking about what it takes to be a master of our own life. What would it mean to be a kinder and gentler with ourselves so that we can find peace and joy within the lives we already have?
The more important questions we can ask ourselves are:
What does it mean to you to be a person of mastery?
How can you be a better spouse, parent, friend or mentor?
What would it take and how would it feel to be able to come closer to the life you have imagined?
It takes far less work than you might imagine but it does require that you stop, pause and reflect on where you want to go, what you want in your life and then take a step in that direction.
It is never too late to start or begin again to get the kind of life that will make you happy and at peace with yourself and others. If your dream is to move forward, ask yourself how you can take one small step forward.
Defining what we want in life and moving toward that goal is a life long journey. If you need a guide to help you get started or help with motivation to keep going, send me a message and we can talk about what that would be like for you.
The words of Virginnia Satir say it best. “I want you to get excited about who you are, what you are, what you have, and what can still be for you. I want to inspire you to see that you can go far beyond where you are right now. “
