The Hardest Challenge Brought Out The Best In Me

The Hardest Challenge Brought Out The Best In Me

2 mins 96 2 mins 96

Roger Crawford has rightly said that “Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional’’. Every challenge we face has its own level of difficulty and using the brain. The challenges that we are facing right now during the pandemic are the toughest and most difficult to pass. The only way to pass is to follow the rules. I have faced many challenges but this one challenge brought out the best in me. 

  

It was a lovely and beautiful morning. The birds were chirping. The ocean glittered. The dolphins jumped. Well, you must have guessed where was I. I was in Florida, California. I had come for a vacation with my best friend Navya and Udhbhavi. We were just getting ready to go for breakfast when suddenly we heard the fire alarm buzz. Buzz! Buzz! Soon there were rumors about the hotel kitchen on fire. The fire was immense and was caused because of a chef's silly mistake of putting wine on top of oily pork. I decided to help them evacuate the people as I had an experience like this before. Navya evacuated the first floor, Udhbhavi did the second floor and I did the rest third and fourth floor.  

  

I had finished evacuating the third floor, so I raced to the fourth floor. There I saw a child who had been separated from his mother. He was scared and started running into the room. At that time almost all floors were in the fire, so I had to think of something very quickly and fast. I called Navya and Udhbhavi. Unluckily, the fire had started burning the stairs, so we could not escape from there. We raced to the child's room, grabbed a rope, and held him. I first lowered the child, then Navya went down and then Udhbhavi. Soon I went down after closing the door. Everybody cheered at us. The mother ran towards her child. We all were over the cloud nine when we saw them reunited.  

  

I was very happy and overjoyed. Everybody faces a challenge but it is in their hand if they want to face it. After this story, I am going to tell you what the quote means. It means that every challenge we face is inevitable and unavoidable. At some moment it will come back to us again. But being defeated and avoiding the challenge is optional.
