CONTEXT

Back in the day when I was younger, I was neck-deep in freestyle skiing.  Even in the summer, I was looking at the sky through the classroom window and hoping that there would be snowfall.  I was thinking about skiing day and night.  However, skiing which I loved so much resulted in a terrible accident.   I suffered from a dislocation fracture of my cervical spine.  I could not breathe and all I could do was lean heavily against mother earth.  Soon after, I was surrounded by negative elements. 
However, I think that was the turning point of my life.  A terrible experience can act as a reset button for life and also become a whole new primer for a different direction.  My damaged neural network started restructuring, transmitting signals through my brain, and taking my life to a new direction.
