AtoZchallenge — K is for Kick in the Arse

Posted by admin on 12th April 2013 in Inspirational, Social Commentary

On August 13th, 2011, at 10:18pm the Universe gave me a swift Kick in the Arse. I plummeted literally and figuratively into the darkness. I fell 15 feet and snapped my right wrist among other serious injuries. I had a comminuted fracture–the radius bone snapped and the head of the bone was broken into several pieces. I was rushed to a nearby hospital and orthopedic surgery was performed the next morning to rebuild my wrist. Everything was going wrong in my life at that point: floundering acupuncture practice, morbid obesity, failed start after failed start for my music, years of depression.

Look at this happy camper!

Happy & Healthy... NOT!

I felt like giving up. I felt like it was the final kick in the balls, not in the arse. Then I realized this life is a gift, and if you want the present, make it your present. I used my Oriental Medicine training to heal a 9-12 month bone injury in 3 1/2 months. It literally blew my orthopedic surgeon’s mind. Even though it was incredibly painful, I started rehabbing my wrist by practicing guitar again. I sucked but I would not give up.

Then, in April 2012, I had a deeper epiphany–time to heal body, mind, and spirit. I began the JingWakening. As I practiced guitar and songs 2-3 hours each night. I strictly lived a healthy life style. I have lost 103 pounds in the past year!

Check out my acupuncture blog for how I did it.

    You were able to respond positively to that kick. Others might have felt sorry for themselves and sunk deeper into depression. Was it the right timing, your inner resources just waiting to be called upon? Good for you!

      Thanks for reading my blog and the compassionate words. I believe I finally hit a low enough point where my true spiritual beliefs kicked in and I am blossoming in many positive ways because of that. I truly look forward to the days ahead.
