There are times in our lives where things were going well. We were happy, excited and passionate about life. Then all of sudden, life took a sharp turn downward. Maybe it was a divorce or a job loss. One thing I understand is that the issues of life don’t always turn out good. In spite of it all, we must keep the fire burning. Don’t let the fire burn out.

Besides, there are people who have it worst than me. Depression kills the fire. Only hope can rekindle the fire.
