The Fight

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao was touted as the fight of the century.   Some felt it was uneventful and predictable.  Yet, others felt it was a “good fight”.  How many times have you felt like you were in “the fight of the year or your life”?  When we are in the midst of a bout it seems never ending.

Sometimes one thing happens right after the other and we feel like throwing in the towel.  Some of us wish we could just be knocked out due to the extremity of the discomfort or pain.  There is always an end.  In the boxing match there were 12 rounds.  In the beginning of round one there is no way to know what will happen by the twelfth round.  We have to keep fighting.  In between rounds we may get a short breather to nurse our wounds and determine how to continue fighting. 

One things guaranteed and that is the next round is coming.  We may be wearier and less attractive or desirable and have cuts and bruises.  At times we may even be unrecognizable but the fight continues.  As we fight, we are strategizing, learning our opponent and discovering just how resilient and strong we are.  At times, we surprise ourselves with our own persistence and stamina. 

As in the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight, the end came.  The fighters were battered and bruised but they still received their reward (millions!).  Our rewards may not be monetarily lucrative but may be educational, spiritual, or physical.  After putting forth our best effort, in one way or another, we are stronger in the end.
