Out of these ashes, Beauty will rise.Steven Curtis Chapman
Earlier today, the Notre Dame was on fire and the world was in total shock, thankfully after several hours, the fire was managed well and the core structure of the building was not much affected. However, I just want to say that my heart and prayers goes out to the people of Paris. The Notre Dame was not only a place of worship but it was one of the world’s national treasure, with its rich historical values that symbolizes unity, hope and love to the people. In 2016, I was very privileged to have visited the Notre Dame and it was a sight to behold, the experience will always hold a special place in my heart.
I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.Anonymous
You see, the fire may have burned down some parts of the Notre Dame, one of the great national symbol of France, but here’s the thing, it did not burnout the nation’s unity, hope and love for its people and the world. It was comforting to see that in the midst of the fire, there is unity and togetherness among the people.
This taught me an important lesson that though the building is burned down, the people’s unity are not burnout. Therefore, it goes to show that in our life as well that there will always be people who will try to burn down your dreams, they may laugh at your vision, they may have make fun of your goal, they may talk you out of your aspiration. These people could be your bosses, colleagues, friends or even family. However, always remember, they may have burn down your dream but never allow your passion to be burnout.
Therefore, continue to keep the burning desire for what’s important in your life. The people can do whatever they want to, to bring down your hope and vision but the choice is still in our hands to keep our dream alive. They may have brought fire of disappointments, fire of anger and fire of humiliation unto you but in the end it is still up to us whether or not to allow the fire to affect us. Keep the fire burning inside of you alive to reach your goals that no matter what fire comes from the outside to burn it down, it will never burn it out.
