Another late post tonight... but still making it.  I was out golfing.

One of the things I have learned over the past couple of years is that sometimes there are things you don't think you'd like but being open to different things allows you to have lots of fun and joy into your life. 

I never thought I'd be someone who golfed.  My dad would watch it on TV and I never had any interest in it.  But lots of my friends and family enjoyed it, and I like to be outside and hang out with those people, so I thought I'd try it too. 

I've been golfing now for a couple of years and mostly with my mom, aunt and best friend.  Golf is enjoyable, but mostly because I get to be outside and hang out with wonderful people.  I'm nowhere near a great golfer, but sometimes have some good shots.  Usually one or two that Auntie Karen will say "holy moly mama".   Often I find it frustrating, but like laughing with people, which is what I usually do.  I don't keep score or take it too seriously.  I don't buy the fancy clothes or go to fancy courses.  I just try to go out and enjoy nature and the company. 

Till tomorrow

sounds like good enough reasons to do it

golfing is crazy expensive in Belgium, considered as luxury and posh even though it's more attainable lately

I got my own clubs in late-2013 and had a couple of tries at the driving range but then I hurt my foot in May 2014 (golf season ruined) and this year I was tied up until early-August with wedding details and then boom...hurt my silly foot AGAIN! Sigh...maybe next year will be my year on the green.
