I have two guitars now (a ukulele and a nose flute too) that I play for fun. Never quite got past the version of stage fright that freezes the left hand, so I don't play in front of people very much at all. I play to relax and unwind and am truly an amateur. If you look up the word history for the word "amateur" you'll find it's related to the root "amo", to love. As I go through life I relish my amateur status in many areas of life.
