Let’s learn something from a mythical creature ‘Phoenix’ here. The phoenix is well known for burning in its own fire and rising again from its own ashes.
Run from what is comfortable. Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious. I have tried prudent planning long enough. From now on, I'll be mad. ~Rumi
So what I suggest here is, when life throws a surprise on us which is seemingly unpleasant and totally unacceptable, like the phoenix, let us own it like the fire. Let us just see it like the fire which is here to break, dismantle, shatter and destroy the old and obsolete ways and beliefs and burn in it. Let it Burn till nothing but ashes are left behind. Just completely surrender to it. Because what will emerge out of the ashes would be something new. A new you! You who is stronger and wiser than before. A person who is more vibrant, an example for the whole world to look up to. You would just look back and would be proud of yourself to have made it through. There is only to gain and nothing to lose.
Just like the phoenix burns to ashes in its own fire and begins life anew from its own ashes, let your own challenges of your life transform you into a new “YOU”!
