I’ve always been a huge fan of the all-American game of, golf.
Actually, let me specify, I’m a fan of playing and dressing the part, but NOT a fan of watching it.
Anyway, it’s a classic game, the color pallet is ‘je ne sais quoi ‘, and who doesn’t like a sport that includes a cart! Win, win & a win.
While I’ve always been a huge admirer of the sport, I never really took a swing at it (no pun intended) until this past year.
Once Matt and I moved to Dallas we decided it was important to really have a hobby, that we could work on together.
Now don’t get me wrong, Matt spends plenty of time playing golf with ‘the boys, butttt it’s fun to get out on the course together! So once a month, with the aim to improve our skills,
or I guess I should say the limited skills we have, we roll up to the golf course with the aim of working together.
Whether that means going to Top Golf and working on accuracy or just hitting some golf balls for 30 min at the driving range, it’s fun and really essential to embrace a hobby together, plain and simple.
Now, don’t take this post the wrong way, it’s UBER important to have your own thing!
So Matt has his work, video games, and sports, and I have my blog, part-time job and interns. We both have things and people that we are passionate about, that we can bring to the table and share with each other.
However having something that we like to do together; is JUST as important.
Sharing a hobby or a skill that you can master together, really builds ‘teamwork’ skills.
Blah, I hate even writing that, but it’s true!
Sports really do help to foster comradery and communication, which if you really think about it, is essential to having a solid and supportive relationship.
Right? Don’t we all want to have a partner that is a good teammate! Basically, sharing a hobby, is a fun and easy way to get on the same page while goofing around the golf course.
So whether your hobby is: shopping, movie-going, traveling, attending events together (sporting, concerts, lobster feasts and polo matches) or even something as simple as listening to podcasts together; having a designated hobby together, is all you need.
& it’s also way more fun to have a partner to celebrate your accomplishments with, like when you score your first birdie, which for me is something to celebrate!
Comment below if you have any hobbies you and your better half, partake in. I’d love to hear what you’ve accomplished together & Happy Monday. xx Aubrey
