My brother sent me this video that he took on his phone. It is an implosion of a building in West Palm Beach. It was a condo building that was an eyesore since 2004 because of hurricane damage. When I looked at the video, I said “Wow!” Here is a link to some other videos taken that day.
It reminded me kind of what happened to me in some of my life situations. You take time to build, create a structure and boom, it all comes crumbling down in a flash. I use this building as a metaphor for so many breakdowns that occur because of divorce, financial instability etc… Sometimes the floor gets sweeped up under us. But if the foundation is strong – a strong heart with integrity and a strong sense of self-esteem, then anything can be rebuilt.
