In 1988, Yellowstone National Park broke out in a devastating fire that many people believed would end the health of the park forever. However, scientists found that, within the next year, the disastrous event led to the best condition the park had seen in years. The fire had actually given wildlife there the key components to grow and thrive into the most gorgeous results.

Lesson: Even the most catastrophic experiences eventually can allow you to grow as a person, and be more beautiful than ever.
