It’s time to reflect. After writing blogs every week for the last six months it is time to pause and look back at the last six months; what did blog writing teach me? What lessons would I share? Where do I want to go from here? What do you think? Questions I will answer in this week’s blog!
Growing up as a kid I tried various different sports, like almost every kid does. My impulsiveness took me to many different roads, from skating for a week to going to exactly 3 judo classes before being bored and quitting it. But most of my childhood years I spend on a hockey field, playing field hockey. For 8 years I loved this sport and everything that it had to do with it. However, after I moved to London for my internship a few years ago, my perspective changed 180 degrees. I found out something that caught my fascination; boxing. 2,5 years later I fell in love with boxing and even got a little taste of Mixed Martial Arts; which tasted god damn good! In this week’s blog I want to emphasize how I made this transition from a posh team sport to a martial art, why I fell in love with boxing and why I think people are overthinking it.
