smartcookie.88 A photo of me in dance practice. My intention here is to share a bit of my story in a hope to possibly inspire some of you. Nearly 2 years ago, I suffered from a car accident. A woman suddenly rearended me and pushed my car forward to hit the car in front of me. The collision was certainly big and as a result up to now I've been still suffering from neck and back spasm.
The worst part is not the pain in the neck and back which has been excruciating at times, but the ongoing concussion symptoms: headaches and vertigo(dizziness, nausea). In those moments, I'm almost unable to do anything, not even resting in bed, because the ceiling and the floor would be spining and I only want to vomit!

In order to rehab, I've been doing physio therapy, personal training, taking Jazz/Ballet dance classes and picking up my old passion since I was little - Chinese Classical Dance. I've made signicant improvement but I was told that I'll never be 100% perfect again.
But I've been grateful when I look back at my life - I had severe asthma from age 7 to 16 and was on the verge of death twice in an emergency room with a big oxygen tank. I really lost my childhood during those 9 years! But I'm grateful that I'm still alive and have had many beautiful moments of life. I'll continue to engage in meaningful things to enjoy myself in any possible way!

What I want to share is to learn to accept life as it is, endure the inevitable pain when it arises, find meaning in the unavoidable suffering and transcend ourselves. The real happiness is not free from pain, but at peace (contentment) with whatever arises in the moment, desirable and undesirable. This is from the wisdom mind through mindfulness practice!
