above, my vlog today on the mental hurdles of fighting frequently, and choosing your suffering

Today’s vlog is a little walk down my apartment street. It’s mostly about my mental state facing a fight only a few days after a significant loss, and a now two consecutive losses in a row. When you fight like this a long losing streak can be compressed into just a few weeks, and entering into another fight involves coming off that difficult energy. This is about the turnaround and that mental hill you have to climb when you’ve been fighting like this for years.

Quotes on the Importance of Suffering

Therefore, as we train ourselves in the art of joy, it is equally important to also learn suffering. The meditator who learns joy without learning suffering is like the fighter who learns to attack without learning to defend—her training is grossly incomplete.

Joy On Demand, The Art of Discovering the Happiness Within – by Chade-Meng Tan

Learn to sustain the pain you’ve chosen. When you choose a new value, you are choosing to introduce a new form of pain into your life. Relish it. Savor it. Welcome it with open arms. Then act despite it.

Muay Thai

A 100 lb. (46 kg) female Muay Thai fighter. Originally I trained under Kumron Vaitayanon (Master K) and Kaensak sor. Ploenjit in New Jersey. I then moved to Thailand to train and fight full time in April of 2012, devoting myself to fighting 100 Thai fights, as well as blogging full time. Having surpassed 100, and then 200, becoming the westerner with the most fights in Thailand, in history, my new goal is to fight an impossible 471 times, the historical record for the greatest number of documented professional fights (see western boxer Len Wickwar, circa 1940), and along the way to continue documenting the Muay Thai of Thailand in the Muay Thai Library project: see patreon.com/sylviemuay
