Comments26/10/2016 #9 mohammed khalafBehind every successful person there are a lot of unsuccessful years. Just wanted to remind you as we go into a new week that today's failures may eventually lead to tomorrow triumphs so please don't ever downgrade your dreams to match your reality, upgrade your faith to match your destiny! Keep grinding & Never give up26/10/2016 #8 Lisa GallagherWhat a refreshing buzz @Estee Levinson! This really resonated with me, "However, we can't just rely on God's grace to "make things better" for us." I find this to be very true. We have to act on our prayers, because God doesn't wave a magic wand to answer them. It drives me nuts when people say over and over, "I'll pray for you," yet they are never there for you or others. Life is a work in progress, always :))

- Producer25/10/2016Coming To You From the Sexually Political Religious MiddleThis post is in response to an original article written for The Huffington Post ON October 23rd, 2016, by Matt Sweetwood. This article was then posted to beBee on October 24th, 2016 and can be found...
Comments27/10/2016 #12 Anonymous@Michael D. Davis...Hi Michael !...I don't enjoy watching the antics from both candidates. I know they erased the ethics line in business and personally. However, we have some really patriotic Americans, like our Vets, many of whom would not dream of not voting. We also have the religious groups that disapprove of the morals of both of our candidates. This is a tough time to be trying to make a decision. Filled with scandal, vile language etc...I could go on forever. They both make me squirm.25/10/2016 #10 Robert Bacal#7 @Matt Sweetwood One of the problems with voter suppression, which is what you are suggesting, is that it doesn't affect both candidates equally. That' why it's been a political tactic in the past. Your suggestion of not voting for President favors Trump, and it's been suggested, rightly or wrongly that you were/are a Trump supporter.
I "think" that's why some people have reacted so negatively to your suggestion of not voting for President -- that it's born out of partisan efforts to support Trump dressed up as something neutral.
That's my take on some of the reactions you've received, and again, I have no opinion on your motivations or intent.25/10/2016 #9 Michael D. Davis#7 I take the position that our current political selection process has sadly taken on a very ugly demeanor. This is partly due to media sensationalism as well as a lack of civil decorum among the political participants. We need true leaders in this country. The responsibility falls on we, the American public, to exercise responsible leadership in spite of what career politicians & well heeled bullies exhibit. I'm very weary of what has sadly become politics as usual.25/10/2016 #5 Jim MurrayThere are a lot of people upset with Mr Sweetwood's post, and his rabid defense of his position. Nothing wrong with that, but you really have to ask yourself where these kinds of posts actually belong The fact that a number of people are upset that the CEO of beBee USA would choose to make that pointed a political; statement on a very touchy subject is disconcerting to say the least. You post rightly points out that a lot of things in the USA have gone to hell lately and the media is the most obvious instigator. I'm vehemently anti-Trump and anti-media myself, but I'm also a Canadian, so I'm just writing about the stuff I see. I guess it's different if you really have a dog in the fight. Maybe.

Comments27/10/2016 #34 Pamela L. Williams#30 Stay tuned Deb. Although I wouldn't call it a happy ending, life is set right, as best it can in the circumstances under which my characters have been placed. Life is full of lessons, we are all tested and we all fail, but sometimes we don't, sometimes we find the path we can take and find peace, with ourselves, with others.

Have one super positive vibration of Spanien Maria25/10/2016 #31 Fatima WilliamsDear @Pamela L. Williams this was very emotional and a nail-biter to read. I started reading with a smile and all the characters fell into place and I was still wondering why Running deer hated Nicanol after reading the birth part of the episode. Towards the end I was thinking OMG what is this stubborn child going to do and as I wanted my guesses to be wrong . They were not only right but also claimed two lives instead of what I thought as one.
The loss of a loved one can create such negative feelings and behavior especially when the death is not natural and man-made. I now see why she is treated this way and wonder if Running deer will ever understand that Nicanol has realized the consequences of her action.
Brilliant fantabulous story writing. This one will definitely never cease from my memory.
#Youareawesome #Lovedit #PamelaRocks :)25/10/2016 #30 Deb Helfrich#25 That's what we get in real life. The current imperfect amalgamation of many, many past actions and thoughts. Almost all of which will stay hidden...
But, of course, the question is - even when meanness is justified in some sense by a prior interaction - is it acceptable?
I have held grudges for things unable to be uttered in the same sentence as losing a child. And it is inevitable that there will be individuals who we struggle to get along with - but the poisoning of the clan/community that is an entirely different level of grudge and perhaps one to really be alert for. One person rarely has much of a chance against systemic injustice.25/10/2016 #29 María Teresa Redondo Infantes25/10/2016 #27 María Teresa Redondo Infanteshttp://www.smule.com/recording/barry-white-let-the-music-play-barry-white/339944951_200449971 View morehttp://www.smule.com/recording/barry-white-let-the-music-play-barry-white/339944951_200449971

Do you see now why that makes sense? To me it had to be written that way, you had to think about the characters and their actions until this episode and everything fell into place. To me it imbued the story with raw emotion.25/10/2016 #23 Pamela L. Williams#5 I actually tire myself out once I start writing, I can't stop. I sat in a coffee shop Saturday, working on the story and before I knew it four hours had passed. They kicked me out because they wanted to close so I went to one of my favorite diners, had a Western Omelet and worked for another hour. I think I got a bit obsessed. You think?25/10/2016 #21 Pamela L. Williams#8 thank you my friend! It was really hard to write. I got attached to my characters. I want to eventually do a Prequel and tell the full story of Friend of the Wolf and Morning Dove. Something is telling me that needs to come first. When I finish the final chapter you'll see that. Yes, it's already in my head. Wish I could write it as fast as the story comes to me. I could write a novel in a weekend. :-)25/10/2016 #20 María Teresa Redondo Infantes#17 The secret of human existence is not only live, but also know what you live

Comments25/10/2016 #2 Deb HelfrichThis was a fantastic read, @Prakashan B.V. In the beginning you went through your day intent on fulfilling your need to be kind, rather than observing where it was needed. We all do this so often.
I remember a tremendous kindness when I worked for Bose in the Boston area. I was a temporary in the HR dept with an end date right before Christmas, as they closed for the week between Christmas and New Years. A woman I didn't know very well - also in HR - gave me a holiday card that last afternoon, dropping it by my desk as she made her way through the office. I opened it and was shocked that she had enclosed a $50 bill. I'd been on a contract for only 3 months and she was not someone I interacted with as part of my job, just someone I chatted with in the hallway. I went to thank her profusely, and she said she remembered how much it meant to her in her early twenties when someone slipped her an unexpected card with cash.
She said she had heard me talking to some of the job applicants - my role in recruiting was to give a tour of the facility and walk them around to the offices of the folks they would interview with. She said that the small things I said to entice the candidates to work there was obviously sincere and that on more than one occasion she passed me as I encouraged the person to not be anxious and gave them an interview pep-talk.
This story was tucked in my memory, Prakashan, and you've done a random act for me by bringing it back to my consciousness. I cannot stop feeling how it felt to drive home for Christmas thinking of this colleague who noticed how I did my job and was thoughtful enough to let me know in the most unexpected way.25/10/2016 #1 Franci Eugenia HoffmanActs of kindness should be an everyday occurrence. For example - Letting the person with only a couple of items in front of you in the grocery store; holding a door open for someone in a wheelchair; letting someone know they dropped something important; listening to others!
- Producer23/10/2016We, Our Grandfather and His Inspiring TalksPerhaps, after receiving love and care from parents, children get an extra bonding love from their grandparents. After all, grandparents are like caring guardians, full of blessings and love, and always ready to inspire with their little stories...
Comments26/10/2016 #9 Mohammed A. Jawad#7 @Praveen Raj Gullepalli Thanks so much for your thoughtful comments, and in fact, reading your response refreshed my memory in many ways. Indeed, the presence of parents and grandparents is both blessings and bounty. We ought to revere them, with all humility, for their love, care and mentoring. I am glad to know you had wonderful times listening tales to your maternal and paternal grandfathers :) Aha…then, the strict precepts, out of sheer care and love, that comes from them…do this, do that, avoid this, follow that…:) your story too reminded me things of past…street lights, moths immediately after sunset, petromax (that we used to light in our home when we were bereft of electricity for almost 5 years due to heavy bill). With such lovely parents, I presume that you had a lovely tutelage. Once again, thanks so much Praveen Sahab! :)26/10/2016 #7 Praveen Raj GullepalliThat's a lovely tribute to your dear Grandfather, dear Jawad! Parents provide love, care and affection while grandparents instill truths and wisdom, through their stories and their games with the children who more or less look at them like playmates! Am glad that his strength of character and his words have stayed with you. I had a quiet, smiling and stoic grandpa from my Dad's side and an outspoken and flamboyant one from my Mom's side. Both had their own tales to tell, from the memories I have. :) And they were quite a contrast even in their complexion. The former was brown-complexioned and the latter was very fair and golden-eyed! Yes, their generation, unless educated well or endowed with family properties, had to endure a lot of hardship. My paternal Grandpa's COUSIN also called Grandfather by us, was a unique gentleman for his time. Not having the wherewithal to pursue schooling he used to tell me how he would sneak into classes, with waste note papers and pencil stubs and rubbers thrown away by other students, listen avidly, make notes, come home walking miles to sit under a solitary dim street petromax/gas lamp surrounded by moths and crickets, read and memorise; and then rub away / erase the notes to reuse that paper for many times... and finally managed to earn a place in school through sheer tenacity of purpose that was noticed by his uncle who supported him subsequently. He was a master at Urdu, Telugu, Hindi and English. He spoke English with a proper, commanding British accent and had such an amazing command over Grammar, that even higher officials used to be cautious speaking to him in English! He rose to the ranks of a Tahsildar before retirement.26/10/2016 #6 Lisa GallagherWhat a great story you shared about your grandfather @Mohammed A. Jawad. I love the photo. I'm glad you had many years to enjoy with your grandfather and he shared his knowledge freely. It's so nice when you have such a great relationship with family members because there's a lot to pass on to future generations ( a lot of good, that is).24/10/2016 #5 Mohammed A. Jawad#3 @Deb Helfrich Thanks so much for your appreciative remarks. Yes, sometimes we ought to delve into our past to recall something most prized. What matters is attitude. And our grandfather was a man of good, cheery attitude. Thanks, once again for liking this post.24/10/2016 #3 Deb HelfrichI feel richer from getting to meet your grandfather through your memories and words, @Mohammed A. Jawad. I have seen a very similar quality in many of your buzzes - they are inspiring talks! What a wonderful time we do live in for his story now to be told virtually to a worldwide audience.

►About Les Brown: Les Brown (born February 17, 1945) is a motivational speaker, author, radio DJ, former television host, and former politician. As a politician, Les Brown is a former member of the Ohio House of Representatives. As a motivational speaker, Les Brown uses the catch phrase "it's possible!" and teaches people to follow their dreams as Les Brown learned to do. Les Brown was the host of The Les Brown Show.
Les Brown was born with Les Brown's twin brother, Wesley, in an abandoned building in a low-income section of Miami, Florida. Les Brown was subsequently given up for adoption and adopted by Mamie Brown, a 38-year-old single woman who worked as a cafeteria attendant and domestic assistant. Les Brown was declared "educably mentally retarded" while in grade school. Despite the self-esteem issues this created, Les Brown learned how to reach his full potential with the encouragement of Les Brown's mother and assistance by a helpful teacher in high school, a key point in many motivational speeches Les Brown gives now.

Comments24/10/2016 #5 LQ McDonald III#4 I really appreciate you taking the time to read and comment on my post and I think your comments are very important. It is my believe that everyone has faith and I agree that there are 2 kinds of faith. I often describe them as Affective Faith and Effective Faith. Affective faith is an overall confidence and trust in things as they are. Such as your semi truck example. Effective faith is more of a giving thing to whatever divinity it is that you believe in. I think there is room for both and, at the end of the day, acknowledging that, despite our beliefs in divinity of some sort, we all navigate this world with a heavy amount of faith.22/10/2016 #4 WILLIAM C. BALLARD IIDo you have Faith? Most the time, Faith has nothing to do with GOD. Faith that the Semi truck coming towards you on a two lane road ,,stays in His lane.

Reading your post sounded like you have penned down prized precepts for understanding and bettering lives.
Indeed, every person lives his/her own life...and there's fate whose content remains unknown. But, by getting inspiration from others and learning from our past follies, we have to live our present, with conscience, stability and patience. With every hardship, there comes ease. With every cheery moment, we have to be grateful unto the Almighty Lord. And perseverance in pain is prized beauty.

Thanks thanks thanks.20/10/2016 #18 David B. GrinbergKudos on your "sweet honey" Paul. I really admire your retrospective and straight talk. Personally, I think whether one is beBee ambassador or not doesn't really matter because every bee is a so-called "influencer" on this promising platform. That's one of many factors which helps create the feel of a real community with thoughtful buzz and honest/open feedback.
Regardless of what one call us, we are all worker bees in the sense that we share the common goal and purpose of making beBee the best it can be. Worker bees don't care about who gets the credit, rather it's all about teamwork. And teamwork is what makes winners. Perhaps that's why LI continues to stagnate while the buzz about beBee continues to grow louder. Can you hear it? Buzz on, my friend!
- Producer20/10/2016Human Nature It is interesting that BeBee is attracting much attention.I was thinking about why?I know other people have written their reasons - I know one of mine, is I see more pollinating of ideas, and ideas moving from one person to the next that advances...
Comments21/10/2016 #9 Deb Lange#6 @David B. Grinberg "worker bees show admirable teamwork in building their hives" versus, the prevailing "me, me'me" shadow side of human nature presenting itself in much social media. - great observation David. I am feeling increasingly enriched using nature metaphors, it is a constant reminder that we are nature. That has inspired me to remember the great work of Janine Benyus and Biomimicry - I will write a post! Thanks David.20/10/2016 #6 David B. GrinbergKudos for a very buzz-worthy read @Deb Lange. In addition to the fundamental beauty of nature exemplified by bees, I would also point out that bees are hard workers (worker bees) and show admirable teamwork and selfless fortitude in building their hives.
Thus, in a social media environment that is too often self-focused with a "me, me, me" feel, it's great to be part of a social platform that prides itself on more profound and praiseworthy principles. The buzz is growing louder!20/10/2016 #3 Mamen DelgadoOhh, that's so nice!! Please let me know yes when it comes to you...

Those that value the wrong things may be more common with this particular personality trait.22/10/2016 #30 Rick DelmonicoThere is a light and dark side to each personality. What we value matters. If you value the good things you will continue to move towards the light If you value the wrong things you will become like Vader. Everyone has a self narrative, the portrait of themselves they paint. Most people embellish this image (use artistic license). When others enforce our self narrative, we feel good and when they contradict it, we get upset. This self narrative will not be accurate and it will fluctuate. I am an ENFJ, on the light side, ENFJ's are other-centered (Martin Luther King, Jr.) and on the dark side, they are extreme narcissist (Barack Obama).21/10/2016 #24 Paul Kearley@Renée Cormier ...love this piece! Especially your last line: "We all need someone who believes in us, who is a cheerleader for our goals and dreams; someone who will tell us that we are going to be okay. We also need someone to give us a kick in the ass now and then."21/10/2016 #22 Harvey LloydYour opening line that you met @Kevin Pashuk and his professed strong I (Introverts Unite! (Separately) and your E @Renée Cormier had to produce a story of some sort. I have enjoyed the Myers Briggs concept as a communication understanding tool.
I took administrative staff and handed each objects you would find in wal mart and asked them to come up with a marketing scheme and advertisement. They had to present the advertising to the team. We were able to use this exercise to show folks how their personality guided their understanding of how to communicate to others. Mostly we had fun in understanding how our Myers-Briggs affects our communications. A lens that we see the world through.
One of my favorite pass times is to watch I's and E's coexist in environments. The E is getting charged up in the social gathering and you can watch the low battery signal draw closer in the I. Airports are the best to watch. Most I's have lost it before they get through security. Funny stuff Darth Vader:) I am INTJ, may the force be with you. I share this designation with Stalin, Marx and Martin Luther. I'm figuring therapy will be a constant.21/10/2016 #21 Renée Cormier#8 #4 #17 #16 #20 #15 #13 #11 Here's something funny. I went to a different website to do the free test. This one was longer and I thought for sure I would have a different result because I am not too thrilled with the notion of being considered a ball buster, but geeze, I got the same result! ESTJ! What a riot! Here's the other site: https://www.16personalities.com/20/10/2016 #18 Renée Cormier#13 Thanks for the comment, David. Yes, I've always been a fan of encouraging people to be the best they can be. On another note, it is widely believed that Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, but that's not quite true. It is actually a Canadian invention. Edison was a brilliant business man (no pun intended). He actually perfected and marketed the original design that changed the way we live. http://www.mysteriesofcanada.com/ontario/first-electric-light-bulb/20/10/2016 #17 Randy KehoI refuse to allow myself to be defined by any test that is designed to screw with my head. It's screwed up enough. I don't care to know the particulars. @Renée Cormier By the way, I'm LMAO. For your next presentation, why don't you wear a Darth Vader mask and try to get your message across without pissing anybody off (a reference to your previous post). I'd make a poor shrink, too, wouldn't I?

Comments20/10/2016 #7 Sarah ElkinsSo right, @Paul Kearley, we underestimate the smallest kind gestures every single day. People are so desperate for real connection, but seem to miss out on the opportunities that are right in front of them! Hold the door for the person coming in behind you, smile at the checker at the grocery store, wave in another car to merge into traffic and smile while you wave. Those small gestures create great ripples. And then there are the bigger gestures - when you feel compelled, don't hesitate, just do it.20/10/2016 #5 Praveen Raj GullepalliDear Paul...thank you...you sound so right with a voice that sounds like Conscience speaking! ...When your level of passion is greater than your level of procrastination, and when your degree of concern for others is greater than your complacency towards them, then you will have discovered the true nature of being human...

Inspirational, @Lisa Gallagher, because of the honest truth that our start doesn't necessarily predict our ending. We do have the ability to choose, most especially to choose LOVE.19/10/2016 #8 Lisa Gallagher#7 Hi @Renée Cormier, I could not agree more about my grandfather. As I grew older and heard the stories (too many offenses to list) I felt the same about him, "he's an evil man." He had 6 brothers who were all nice and not one of them were alcoholics. My mom's real mother fell down a flight of stairs and ended up with a brain injury and amnesia. He had her committed to a state mental hospital back then. She developed pneumonia and was pregnant with her second child. They tried to get a hold of him to have her transferred to the Cleveland Clinic for treatment and he was no where to be found. My mom showed me an add his own family placed in the paper looking for him (I just saw the clipping about 4 years ago). Anyhow, her real mom gave birth to a full term still born and died from pneumonia not long after the birth. He took off and joined the Army. My mom was sent to live with relatives in Florida. She told me she loved them and that was the only good time in her entire childhood. He came back when she was 5 years old with his 'new' wife and took my mom back with them. I'm glad my mom broke ties with him when we were younger, she did us all a big favor. Yes, we all get along like best friends, I feel very fortunate. Mom always felt fortunate to have 5 children that loved her so much and was able to give so much love back to all of us. Sorry this was so long but I'm glad you called him out for what he was, it's true.19/10/2016 #7 Renée CormierSuch a beautiful family. You are lucky to have had a loving, caring and giving mother. Not all of us get to experience that. As for your grandfather; it has always been my belief that anything you do drunk you would do sober, if you only had the guts. Your grandfather was cruel at his core. Alcohol just made it easier for him to be his true self. I'm glad your mother found a loving family to be a part of and I am especially glad she did not choose to live her life in bitterness. She certainly raised a lovely lady (you) and I am sure the rest of your siblings have been well raised too.19/10/2016 #5 Laura Mikolaitis"Mom taught us that life is a constant lesson and when we stop learning, we stop living.

Close19/10/2016 #1 Vincent AndrewYour mum is an inspiring person Lisa. Despite the setbacks she faced, she stayed positive and helped raise a kind and happy family. She put others' needs before herself. 'I don't think it was until I became a parent myself that I was able to honestly appreciate the life we were given.' I fully agree with this. I am really really thankful to both my mum and my late dad for their toils, encouragement and wisdom just to help us pull through life. Thanks for sharing this Lisa.
