You owe it to yourself to be the best you can possibly be
As 2018 draws to an end, and the new year starts creeping closer to the horizon, it was time to reflect on the good, the bad and the ugly of what 2018 threw at me and how these opportunities and challenges shaped me.
As in life, there is always lows that accompanies the highs. 2018 was to be fair, pretty much balanced. For every low, there was a high. They were few, but they surely played a significant role in my day to day life.
Looking back at the highs of the year:
Competed in Asia early ;
Extended my Skechers Performance sponsorship 2017-2019;
Started my PGA Diploma through the PGA of SA;
Became golfscape’s and iheartfoodae’s brand ambassador;
Invited to participate amongst Europe’s finest in 3E Actuaries Open (event postponed to March 2019).
Without dwelling on the lows, being ruled out for most of the season due to a fracture in the beginning of the season, had a major influence on this year.
Although this might not seem like a successful season on the golf course, personally I couldn’t have it any better. It gave me time to reflect on what I need to become to be more consistent and competitive, what I need to work on in my own game, it gave me time to reflect on my health and fitness and it gave me time to set goals for 2019 and put plans in place to achieve them.
I am grateful for all the positivity and support I have gained from all over the world. As an upcoming pro athlete the road is not always smooth and perhaps that’s why the journey ain’t for the fainthearted, or as the cliche says “If it was easy, everyone would have done it.”
I will set my focus on South Africa’s leading women’s tour, Sunshine Ladies Tour, starting in January (dates TBC), before I will shift focus to Europe. As for Asia, I will pursue opportunities in Taiwan and Philippines and follow wherever He leads me.
Looking forward to 2019 with loads of energy, positivity and an eagerness to compete.
