Be Like A Bee


One day I was sitting on the deck out back when I spotted a bumble bee. The thought hit me that maybe bees might be a good topic for my blog.  I ran inside to get the camera but when I returned the bee was gone.

I never did get around to writing the article about bees in the garden. But seeing this huge bumble bee did remind me about the saying, bumble bees can't fly, they just do it anyway.

Really, in theory bumblebees should not be able to fly. According to the great minds of science, the bumblebee cannot fly. Why? For one, its wings just aren't big enough. The body is too big. Aerodynamics says it is impossible. The biggest computers in the world all come to the same conclusion, it can't fly.

Another fact about the bumble bee is, and maybe the smart people didn't think about this one, the bumble bee doesn't have any ears.

Really, the bumble bee doesn't have any ears.

Nope, the bumble bee doesn't have ears, so maybe this explains why it ignores the smart minds, the computers, and the skeptics, and it just goes ahead and flies anyway.

This is a good reminder that maybe there are times in our lives when we need to be more like the bee, and just do things anyway.

How many times have we listened to others and never even tried something simply because they told us we couldn't?

So the next time you face a challenge, remember the bumble bee.

The next time you feel like you can't, remember the bumble bee.

The next time you need to get things done, remember the bumble bee. 

The next time you need to get up off the couch, remember the bumble bee.

The next time somebody tells you that you can't,  be like the bumble bee and just do it anyway.

Just Do It.
