    #13 @Brian McKenzie, we have all probably been there at some point, I was in banking through the 1990 recession, the 2000 dot com bubble and I set my company up in the double dip of 2008/ 2009, the wonderful circle of people I have in my life, money could never replace their love, kindness, gratitude to my very being, is what makes me blessed with life, however, choices needed to be made to take me to this position, money is not the main driver or motivator behind the happiness we all have. With happiness success will follow you. I still maintain and I talk with immense experience on the subject, a good life is built with good relationships, one bad relationship can be collateral damage to you and your happiness and life, I found the hard way, but perhaps I was needed to learn this way to find ultimate happiness in life......

    #7 Thank you Brian for your comments, I always like to receive prospective's to my blogs, we all have our points of view on life and what drives us as beings, however, if LOVE is driven by a relationship and if the relationship is fulfilling your happiness, then LOVE is the answer for you, if you are in a relationship where LOVE is not happiness in your relationship then I totally understand your answer too.

The Art of Happiness is a very interesting read and of coarse Buddhism and Buddhism teachings and with wisdom of the world value highly such virtues as loving kindness, humanity, patience and giving, perhaps they value wisdom and compassion most of all. Happiness by Richard Layard, whilst a few years old, is a great book :-)

    "LOVE" is transactional, temporary, conditional and disposable. It is a great banner to wave to make people move ( along with Freedom, Equality, Liberty, Democracy or Justice) like them, it carries no viable credibility - certainly not with a 50% divorce rate & only a 28% success rate of marriage longevity beyond 10 years.
    Love cannot be the source of "happy" when I see so many countless example of miserable people that get rung through its ringer of lies, false hope and treachery.

    #18 We learned that we were getting through by understanding that the fight of independence was a challenging brain over load that we were feeding into. Repetition and the occasional STOP sign helped us guide our children through the pitfalls presented by independence. The haunting question for us was always how far could you let them fail before pulling them back?

    We new they needed to experience the edges of life while they were able to get feedback from us, before the world got a hold of them. Tough calls made but now, empty nest, i would do it all over again.

    We use to laugh when our children would participate with other families. The feedback was always positive and what great well mannered children we have. We always questioned them as to who's children actaully were with them. :) As a parent it is difficult to know did we get through the thick wall that always seemed to be there. We started to recognize that our commentaries and discussions seemed to show up later on as their own thoughts.

    Its always nice to get a little feedback that we are on the right course and getting through to those we are responsible to guide.

    Enjoyed your article. As a concerned father of two young daughters, I often wonder whether all our teachings of proper human values - kindness, empathy, being nonjudgmental, respecting others opinion, sharing own knowledge with friends, caring, etc. - do sink into their wondrous minds. Reading such articles are indeed reassuring that our effort does (eventually) produce positive result in there life.

    #6 It sure does @Laura Mikolaitis! That is a sad story. I think the toughest thing is not knowing if they get it or not. The other hard part, is that frequent feeling that you do not know what the H. E. Double Hocky-Sticks your doing as a parent. There is no guidebook, no manual, and each child is so unique. Each requires that they be coached as differently as the individuals they are. This parenting thing is nerve-wracking sometimes (especially the teenage years), so these little story's we hear from those the kids have touched in some way, are a little bit of reassurance we're not totally effing them up! :-)

    Kindness definitely reigns @Aaron 🐝 Skogen as is exemplified in this story about your son. I love that you shared this because too often we hear about the negativity that reigns, such as bullying, and other acts that make you shake your head and infuriate you. I recently read a post from one of my friends where she tells about seeing a group of teenage girls on one side of the road flipping off girls on the other side of the road. The girls being flipped off looked away ashamed. It made her question if this is what parenting is - watching other kids and worrying that's what yours will grow into. She said it was heartbreaking to think of it either way. All you can do is hope that you do your best and instill values, teach respect and some of may even be a wind and a prayer. So your story, Aaron, is a timely reminder that kindness exists. Thank you for sharing this.

    Beeing a brand ambassador is interesting and fun. I consider a brand ambassador a person that is positive about and promotes a brand, and nothing more. If the ambassador program becomes extinct or if I am no longer a brand ambassador, then I would still support and enjoy beBee.

    Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee - what a beautiful relationship you have with your daughter. What a wonderful father teaching her to explore, to feel, to share, to be vulnerable. Once again, I do agree with you - nothing exists in isolation of another thing. We pull things apart to study them, whether that be love, or smell, or marketing - it does not matter what element we are looking at anytime, we must also look at the inter-connections with that element. So in your post - yes within love also exists fear, fear of loss, love so much that it hurts - as we talked about in our post on smell - smell does not exist in isolation - take away smell and you take away taste. And in business if we only look at one part, costs without looking at customers or benefits, or culture we make ill-informed choices. We make choices as if we are blind - and we are in a way when we ignore the inter-dependencies of what we are looking at and the consequences to other elements.

    I have shared pictures with me and my grandson online but that I did because 2 year old's grow up fast and they physically change and this change of facial recognition preserves the idea of privacy - and I say idea - because in this world where technology can parse even the semantic constructs of each of our paragraphs, the only real privacy in this world is silence. In reality this privacy battle is being lost.

    I do think Chip Conley has done a nice job with the Emotional Equations but it is only as nice as what our educational system has done to Mathematics. What our education system has done is rip away the beauty in mathematics leaving just bare bones of mathematical equations - whereas the mathematics of beauty are in our children - in the very moment cell division begins to occur and the mathematical fractals start producing life.

    The mathematics of beauty are far cry from the mathematics of answers. We have been taught in our educational system to look for answers and not to appreciate. So it is I appreciate the picture of your daughter because the respect is life itself and that is when we don't need words to describe love - it is already encoded in our DNA and in the flow of meaning into and out of heart.

    Yes, yess and Yes- I say to your comment. Sara didn't stop loving me. In fact, she loved me more. However; her hate of me traveling abroad, her love to find me near to her and her fear of me getting hurt while away caused her fear. Like you wrote " IMO once we love someone unconditionally there's no turning back of that love. It's like a toothpaste squeezed out of its tube". May be Sara's worries at the time (as she was less than five years old when she expressed her innocent passion) was the tube would soon deplete of its toothpaste.
    I admire your mind and wisdom dear Fatima.

    Dear Ali Anani You've touched base on a very important topic Love. A emotion that is so easy to kindle and develop but so difficult to stop using.

    Do you really think that your daughter can stop loving you. I don't think so. IMO once we love someone unconditionally there's no turning back of that love. It's like a toothpaste squuezed out of it's tube.
    Love is pure and eternal and forever.

    We may stop talking or meeting or even disliking a person we love due to their actions. But deep down the heart that loved will always love them even after death.

    This is my experience with love. And this is such a wonderful buzz. I think when one starts to feel a like the way Sara did in the case of any relationship. I believe or feel a little distance between the two people will do the trick. I call it giving space to each other. Creating the distance will actually bring us closer than before. And that fear finally disappears. After all Fear is NOT EQUAL to Love As the weightage of love has the power to drown the other.
    I love Louis Chart on Love - Beautiful.

    Even in pre school I've tried to teach children "We can laugh about a lot of things. Let's do! We don't laugh AT each other, it's just funny :-) " Some kids come from families who (I think from generations on) feel treated as if they are less than others. Those kids really need it to know people can laugh about you without negative meaning.

    Welcoming surprise is intelligent, focusing on what worked is practical, happenings create a colourful existence, being a serious dude is funny, and John Lennon sang about the rest. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjWebKavfuI

    If people actually get close enough for me to hear them tell me "Manjit, give up your splendid isolation and join the real world" - that is the time I try not to laugh but welcome surprise and the whole amusing cycle begins again.

    @🐝 Fatima G. Williams, some people never get to experience love, or have a taste of their dreams, as they don't make it over the edge of 17. I have loved many, but, have truly only been IN love twice in my life and feel blessed to have experienced the feeling. It wasn't enough to avoid the deep-cutting excruciating pain of the thorns that accompanied those emotions, however. You have to take the thorns with the roses.

    #13 I remember that Buzz very much @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee and did not comment at that time because what how I felt about love at that time.
    And there were some great comments on that buzz.I must revisit and read that.
    A mothers love and a brother/sister love cannot be compared to love between two people.
    I seemed to have loved the person more than everything else at one time and then forgot that I was leaving my world behind.

    So I think as Lisa very beautifully says "to have our individuality, space and be with a person who has similar needs and who can love me unconditionally. I think I may have just found him. And pretty excited and scared at the same time.

    04/01/2017 #16 David B. Grinberg
    Nice buzz Fatima. I am of the persuasion that true love can indeed conquer all. But true love is also a two way street, which is absolutely essential for a long-term relationship to last and blossom. Each person must go the extra mile for the other and put the other person above themselves. Moreover, the flipside of the fear to fall in love again, is the fear of being alone for the rest of your life. I think the former overrides the latter. Thanks for a good read and keep buzzing in 2017 🙏👏🐝🐝✌️️

Love my hubbie but he's not a hands on the beach kind of guy... that's OK, I love walking alone. @🐝 Fatima G. Williams, I think we all crave love and need it but the person we love should not be our entire existence. I find it healthy to have our individuality, space and be with a person who has similar needs. I don't want a puppy following me around but I am thankful I have a person who seems to love me unconditionally and respects my space as I do his too. Your poem above is beautiful, not sure I could get my husband to repeat that. Thanks, I find this topic so important. Sometimes people can be together so long they may take each other for granted, reminders are good too. Let your brain guide you and then your heart will melt and so will 'his.' Close

    This is a challenging post dear@🐝 Fatima G. Williams. You asked "Love isn't Enough ! Anyone care to agree or disagree with me".
    You remind me of my own buzz on "I Love You- What Does it Mean"?
    https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/i-love-you-what-does-it-mean
    This buzz generated 168 comments. Ideas on the meaning of love showed a wide spread. So, for me to answer your challenging question I need first to know what love means to you. Love without action isn't love. To love is to give willingly. A mother who loves her kid is willing to sacrifice and do all it can for the kid. Does love have a hierarchy of different levels? If so, only the top level is genuine love.
    I shared your buzz and joined your hive.
    I end by saying I love your writing. I am acting on my love as you can see.

    #7 I am a romantic @CityVP 🐝 Manjit.

    I completely agree with the arranged marriage pathway. I have seen and had conversations with most of the older generation and a few of my own friends happily married.
    But I have also seen my parents and some of my friends parents that had this love which is so magical
    I see there is magic both ways but I'm sure both are scary if the wrong spell is cast !
    Thank you for a thought provoking comment.

    Mutual6 Good for you. You don't owe me an explanation, we haven't connected beyond profiles. Still I will read all that you share :) simply because it is here to read.
    I am curious . Why reinforce with statements that you love those around you, those you love already know, they have moved ahead to the mutual experience. Fear is normal, it happens to everyone, but why does it surface again and again? Is it insecurity linked with love?
    Why must you explain the joy of giving? You have given a lot, those who know just know. Those who take you for granted can't be changed without am affirmation of self.
    I hope you don't get offended, I'm expressing what I believe.
    Another thought, why be at the mercy of opinion? Opinions can be changed instantly, you have all the means to do it. Change opinions and teach people to look beyond their shallow view of you, this is rooted in how you look at yourself

    Would you rather have unrequited love, love that is never reciprocated or never spoken as love to your beloved?

    This is a legitimate choice. One either goes all in or they don't. There are people in this world who did not and I am one of them. That kind of hurt is softened by reason and my reason was simple - not basing my life around a romantic decision. That is why the pathway I took was an arranged marriage. The roots I trusted in where my family and over 30 years that trust has born fruit.

    Now imagine if I had taken the other fork in the road and trusted solely on my feelings. Since there was nothing good that would come from that pathway, the most loving thing one can do is to let that person go, never revealing what was in my heart.

    Today there are two sets of lives that are both successful in their respective roots. It was duly considered and based on pragmatic decision to be best course and way. Hurt on the front end so there could be happiness on the back end - but of course this is no guarantee. There is no guarantee that happiness cannot be stolen from us by the vagaries and twists and turns of life, but there is an improved chance of weighing up life and recognizing the odds. This is not possibility thinking, it is probability thinking.I took the right road, ensuring head was not greater than heart but that heart was not greater than head either.

    Love as a value judgement can be quite a horrible thing, but as a compass, it is altogether a different proposition. Even if you feel alone in that decision, the spirit of your father that is within you amounts to recollections of how he would see this. His legacy is now your legacy to live but the choices of that life are entirely yours. Nothing anyone can say, changes the relationship you personally have between the flow between your head and heart. Who knows what tomorrow brings but it is our vision to make.

    #2 @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt I think if you have read my posts then you must know that I love myself and the people around me alot.
    I believe in giving we receive but that I don't see is applied in love between a man and a woman.
    The fear is of the unknown that is to come and not with the self. I've seen the most passionate couple separate and the most indifferent couples stick together.
    Thank you Mr Dev for reading and commenting.

    You are already in love with a definition of love.Is this your understanding of love? I'm sure there is a lot more because your comments and posts reflect the fact that you think a lot about it.

    Love yourself more, understand yourself more, be deep in your imaginings of self, with each dive come out with something to celebrate.

    You will find the right match.Someone who likes to go deep :)

    Feelings and thoughts are so often incompatible, @🐝 Fatima G. Williams. Remember that the only antidote to fear is love.

    Whether a relationship will work out often is not down to love alone and there is not a piece of advice in the world that can actually help anyone navigate the journey. Sometimes the hands clap for a limited run engagement and sometimes the hands clap for longer than anyone could ever foresee.

    I feel that what matters is whether two people decide to stick together and then affirm that decision time and time and time again. The commitment to that choice is what overcomes the absolute certainty that life will eventually make love hard.

    You described exactly what I think needs to happen - the words of love and joy and companionship are said back and forth as often as possible. Thereby exchange of the words of love cements the feelings into thoughts.

    #75 Nope. I was there for the 1995 season. Amazing El Ninio year. I rented a 2-bedroom apartment and had 3 roommates. Although we didn't get snowed in, I have a picture of the snow bank outside of one of our windows -- snow was above our second floor unit. One night it dumped 3-1/2 feet of fresh powder.

    At the main lodge -- the third floor sun deck turned into a first floor sun deck, the service guys had to dig out the first floor entrance!

    An amazing winter and a great ski season for me - skied / snowboarded from end of October to mid-July.

    #63 Sweet memories; my stepfather loved Jameson and always kept a bottle on hand. I learned to 'mix' his drinks by the time I was 10. (that would be Jameson on the rocks, not a difficult drink to make, but I still remember; it was 3 ice cubes, and two shot glasses of whisky, swirl to chill :-) ). He let me take a sip one time, that's all it took for a 10-year-old! It tasted nothing like the Iced Tea I expected!! But I still remember the hearty laugh my facial expression received. Now I love an occasional whisky on the rocks; I think it's a nostalgia thing.
