Fighting for dreams

Ever wanted something so badly it hurts?

People who know me ask always ask me “How’s training going?”. People close to me know how badly I want to get into the ring, to the point I’m probably driving them insane.

I was entered into a Novice Show that took place yesterday. Unfortunately, I wasn’t matched but I held on till the bitter end, took my kit and was on weight. Even my training partner said, “Don’t think I’ve ever met someone who cuts weight even tho they’re not fighting”. I guess I’ve always been an optimist. If there was the smallest chance of getting in there, I was going to be ready.

My teammates were amazing. Everyone showed pure heart. I hope one day I can make them, my training partner, my instructor and everyone else I’ve dragged along on my journey, proud.

I really need to get this out my system now. I’ve wanted to fight so much for so long. Win or Learn, I just need the opportunity. I’m not going to give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway…
