Mianne BaggerEmbrace diversity. Live life
Life is an amazing journey.
If we are fortunate, we have the opportunity to learn, to grow, to explore, enjoy, help, laugh, live and love. These are some of the many things I enjoy about life and I love to be able to share many of those things with others.
In 2004, the world came to know me as a budding golfer who challenged social ideologies with regard to human diversity in sport. As a transitioned woman I embarked on a journey of education and awareness, to have exclusionary rules changed so I could compete on professional golf tours. After competing on a mini-tour in Sweden in 2004, I gained a tour card for the Ladies European Tour (LET) later in the year and competed in my first season on the LET in 2005.
I would love to say that my touring career was a huge success with multiple tournament wins and a high world ranking, but…. that wasn’t the case. In some 11 years on tour, I had ‘0’ tournament wins and I’m sure my ‘world ranking’ was so far down this list that it didn’t even appear. Regardless of that, I view my own life as a success by the numerous personal goals I achieved and the gratitude I feel.
Success is what ever we decide to define it as being.
Today I enjoy what could be called a ‘minimalist nomadic life’ and enjoy the opportunities and experiences I continue to have, as well as the many varied amazing people I meet. Life continues to keep me on a high (and I’m yet to work out if that’s actually a good thing or not?)
For years I have thought about renewing my site to be more reflective of my current life, life-style and interests, partly as a personal resource, but also for anyone that may enjoy what I share.
Let’s see where this journey takes me….
