The National Emblem of Saudi Arabia
Mention of the name of Saudi Arabia makes me think of Mecca, the petroleum, and the palm tree. Especially the palm tree, because it is the national emblem of Saudi Arabia.
On the emblem, there is one palm tree and two swords which are crossing each other. Crossing swords mean power and patience. The palm tree means vitality, growth, and prosperity.
Then, I thought “power and patience” will call up “vitality, growth, and prosperity.” I was startled by this meaning.
I have started my job hunting recently, and I have been hasty because I had heard that job hunting wears students out so much.
They have to do a lot of things to sell themselves, for example, going to seminars or internships that companies hold in parallel with their university classes.
However, I am always told, “Have your power and patience!” So it was an amazing thing for me.
These words will bring a good future, like “vitality, growth, and prosperity.” Now, I will keep this in mind whenever I feel tired.
