1. steady persistance in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement.
Today’s post is dedicated to my example of Perseverance (ความเพียร in Thai).
As you know, it is a big part of my life to exercise in lots of different forms. Particularly Pilates, Kundalini Yoga and Muay Thai.
Muay Thai is often referred to as the art of eight limbs because it involves using almost every part of the body. This sport is something I have been doing on and off since 2008. No matter what my set backs are, I always find myself coming back to it. Not only does it exert intense physical activity, but I find it is a great outlet for pent up tension in the body. It can even be a type of spiritual path and help increase self confidence and self esteem.
In mid January, I started up at a new fighting gym after last training in Thailand seven months ago. I changed fight gyms so I could focus more with a friend of mine who is now training others in martial arts. She has been a great source of help and support to be attentive to all of my needs and is really excited to get back into training me again once I recover from surgery again.
This is a big thank you to Whitney and Pamorn for welcoming me to their gym and fulfilling my love and energy for this sport.
Thanks to Pamorn for the photos and Champions Gym for making me be able to keep my mind & body focused, energised and happy.
