Everyone loves the image of the Phoenix rising from the ashes, brilliance coming out of ruin. But what is oft forgot is that for the Phoenix to rise, it first must burn. Such wonder can only come out of complete destruction. 

In my life, I have had numerous occasions, where I found myself proverbially in the ashes. Each time, I rose. Each time, I rose into better than what I had before. Each time, I rose more brilliant than before. 

So when I find myself at the bottom of the trench, mucking about in the ashes, I remind myself of this constant, and take what consolation I can in knowing that in order to rise, I first must burn.
