Yes I completed this poem after reading your buzz on smelly organisations. This traid is a very interesting topic. I'll sit on this at night.
But I have promises at work
And targets to meet
And Miles to go
Before I buzz
Ah Time stand still ! ☺08/01/2017 #7 Ali AnaniSo, you are a poet as well dear @Fatima Williams and a "moving" one too.
I can see in the poem an indirect reference to your triad of energy-people-place.
You are a great honor as much as you honor all of us to be members of the beBee society. You spread love as much your words spread pure honey.

Someone whom we can share...
Comments04/01/2017 #19 Chas ✌️ Wyatt@🐝 Fatima 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.04/01/2017 #17 🐝 Fatima Williams#13 I remember that Buzz very much @Ali Anani 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. GrinbergNice 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 🙏👏🐝🐝✌️️04/01/2017 #14 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#12 you better get started Dean. Ok, just teasing... couldn't resist.

Actually, very nice item on your bucket list. That has been on mine for years. Love my hubbie but he's not a hands on the beach kind of guy... that's OK, I love walking alone. @🐝 Fatima 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.' Close04/01/2017 #13 Ali AnaniThis is a challenging post dear@🐝 Fatima 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"?
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.04/01/2017 #10 🐝 Fatima Williams#8 I don't get offended easily Dev. I haven't had time to read your posts or interact so I am yet to know you here on beBee.
But we are all here for one reason to learn from other's experience and to share our own.
And that's why I share what I feel and would like to know what others here feel about a particular idea, thought or experience.
Just because I say something it's doesn't mean the other person would do it.
It is Because Gandhi and other great leaders showed us all that wars can be won peacefully, there is some peace left in the world.Hence explanation is vital. For me to change opinions I need to know yours. Hence I explain, give, receive and share :)
That's just me ☺ and Thank you for being curious.04/01/2017 #9 🐝 Fatima Williams#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.04/01/2017 #8 Devesh BhattMutual6 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 yourself04/01/2017 #7 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWould 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.04/01/2017 #6 🐝 Fatima Williams#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.
I would love to see what @Deb🐝 Lange and many other lovely beBees think of the same.04/01/2017 #2 Devesh BhattYou 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 :)04/01/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 HelfrichFeelings and thoughts are so often incompatible, @🐝 Fatima 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.

Comments21/12/2016 #77 Wayne Yoshida#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!

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.11/11/2016 #66 Aaron Skogen#65 I do try to stay on the right side of the law Paul. So to your point, I would need to obtain a micro-distillery permit from the state of Minnesota (for a nominal fee) :-) I've actually thought about it. . . I was looking to expand my home-brewing into a micro-brewery (NV Brewing™) a few years back after receiving several awards including a Sweepstakes award for my Black IPA, Diabla Negra. Whiskey would be a nice addition to the portfolio, IMHO. Plus, I could then use Buddy Guy's tune as our theme song!11/11/2016 #60 Sarah ElkinsOh dear, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian and @Aaron Skogen, this reminds me very much of our first winter in Montana! I was prepared, I spent high school and college in Colorado. My husband? Not so much. I have to say that my first winter after buying our little Subaru Outback Sport was pretty fun with the studded snow tires. We park behind our house, off an alley. The snow was well above the bumper and I backed right out, no problem at all. The trick to surviving that kind of winter? Lots of Irish whiskey. Love this.

Thanks for the knock - knock and thanks for your story which I enjoyed reading.03/12/2016 #48 Laura MikolaitisI love the random thoughts that you shared here @Donna-Luisa Eversley. Sometimes, the random thoughts can be the best fuel for our fire.
Some days it is difficult to accept that there are things we can't control. That's why it is important to enact our gift of choice; especially when the out of control things can seem overwhelming.
It's taken me a while ton fully grasp the concept but I am better at it now. Each day is an opportunity to exercise our ability to choose - to decide whether we will make the best of a bad day or make the worst of it.
I enjoyed reading this, Donna.

Comments04/01/2017 #44 Dean OwenI keep missing your articles! (Hurry beBee team, we need the sting function!) Definite difference between a wait and a pause. I do like to take my pauses once in a while (like taking a year off when I was 30, and then again when I was 40), but I hate waiting for life to happen. I don't have to wait long for your next article fortunately as I spotted it in my feed just now. See you there!14/12/2016 #43 🐝 Fatima Williams#42 This great experience that you share with us Preston about being in the Wait phase and not taking any action is a lesson you learnt and then you adapt yourself to intiate the action needed. We need to move before its too late. We need to act.
I love this phrase, "You need to Build your Plane while your Learning to Fly it.” Building our Dream or achieving our Vision can have better results if we are in consistent action.
I believe we need to be the drivers of our own car(Life) we don't want to be in the backseat and Wait cause we don't know to drive or end up in the wrong destination as the driver does not know what we want. Rather we learn and act and achieve.
Thanks for the lovely contribution Preston. Enjoyed your comment thoroughly 😊14/12/2016 #42 Preston Vander VenI like your article. You have some great points. I totally agree with finding ourselves to move forward, yet from experience I prefer the NOW. I once heard the phrase, "You need to Build your Plane while your Learning to Fly it.” Building our Dream or achieving our Vision can have better results if we are in consistent action.
Even if at the beginning, they do not create any results and seem futile, our actions are still habit forming. “It feels like you’re jumping off a cliff and building an airplane on the on the way down.” I am a very analytical person, so I use to wait and try to plan every detail, and keep studying whatever I was doing. During this time, I never took action. It always delayed my goals. It was like me wanting to lose 15 pounds, but first studying every book, audio, and workout video. After all that knowledge was absorbed, I then realized that I never changed my diet, or began exercising.27/11/2016 #40 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#39 If we are what we eat, we are also what we think and in this regard there is plenty of suggestions on how to get unstuck. The 7 things to remember when stuck by Allison Fallon serves as an example of the mental shifts available :
7 Things to Remember When You're Feeling Stuck
http://allisonfallon.com/stuck/27/11/2016 #39 🐝 Fatima Williams#38 Thank you @CityVP 🐝 Manjit It's an inevitable truth waiting is a part of our life.
But I feel sometimes we get stuck in our cocoons afraid to fly and spread our beautiful wings.
I remember a story of how an impatient person who saw a butterfly struggling to come out of the cocoon tried helping it and that eventually lead to the death of the butterfly.
This waiting phase in the cocoon is sometimes required to collect the strength as you said that required to break out and fly.
Transformation is the fruit of waiting but lets not wait too much. 🤗🤗🤗🤗27/11/2016 #38 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#37 I welcome moments of life which are a cocoon. In modern culture we treat cocoon as a euphemism for prison, but it is not that, the caterpillar is not a prisoner of the cocoon, but a transformation in waiting and we are not butterflies, we are are more than a transformation that is no bigger than our thumb.
Let me take the song by Milky Chance called "Cocoon" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ernVvrYH9vg so while his main lyric is "so lets go back to our cocoon" the context is still escape and not transformation. http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/milkychance/cocoon.html If we identify with this song, we identify with escape and pain rather than transformation and privacy.
I do not offer this as a perspective to a single a person because my own cocoons are a source of personal liberation. I am not afraid of melancholy or sadness, for when grief comes I will participate in the process of grief, but when freedom comes, I can place that in a cocoon too - for that is a different kind of waiting. The best privacy is to close my eyes or enjoy time at home.
Whether it is waiting such as Van Morrison "Days Like This" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UUWkr4FUlo or I have to do what it is I must do for this thing called our work life and I can't open up my mind to you - there is something gestating in the waiting, there is something fermenting in the waiting, there is something good changing in the waiting. Waiting is a part of life.26/11/2016 #36 Deb🐝 LangeDear @ Fatima I resonate with the wait and the move. I wrote a buzz last week which was well received. I said there is a part 2. I know I have been putting off part 2 as I feel some pressure in myself to have it as well received as part 1, but maybe it won't be. --and maybe it will. I know incubation time is useful but I sense I wait a little too long and need to be bolder with my action in the world. Things are never perfect and are always perfect just the way they are. And can always be updated and improved.26/11/2016 #35 Ali AnaniPart 2

I just request you to read my last buzz and the two co (Parts 1 and 2) and you shall realize what I mean.
We are working on developing a formula for movement and we need your brain. I hope your time would allow you to visit.
Your explanation of the wait time, steps how to deal with it and highlighting the Waiting Step as the critical step leave me with much to think about.

Comments14/11/2016 #16 🐝 Fatima WilliamsWow @Andrew 🐝 Goldman I just love the view and the flowers covered in ice they look so magical. I've never seen snow in my life and I just had the feeling I was right there with you. By far the best live buzz with such a powerful message, a statement that the power lies in us and the change always begin us.
Love your energy and my it's infectious. I'm proud to say that even I get asked how I manage to stay happy and positive 🤗 I give them the same reply " What's not there to be happy about ? We are alive and we have the power to transform our lives into the magic we want it to be. I have been letting myself down on happiness over the last few weeks and this buzz a good reminder of myself. Thank you @Andrew 🐝 Goldman To Happiness and beyond #Youaremagic #Stayawesome14/11/2016 #14 Jared 🐝 WieseThis is so great, Andrew! What a neat idea for a Live Buzz. Such beauty combined with a powerful message. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this.
Your Power Moves reminds me of Tony Robbins and what he calls anchoring. You get into a peak state then reinforce it as needed.
"80% psychology. Success is 80% belief, 20% mechanics" is all about the Why. Again, so true! So often, we need to get our body and emotions (state) to believe more than our minds.
For more info:
"When he was starting out on his journey to become the world's number one success coach, Anthony Robbins used anchoring to prepare himself to take action.

Comments15/11/2016 #24 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsThanks one of my very nice writers😊! I'm so glad you like the story. It's been a both fun and challenging! @Paul Walters was the other one! What is it with me and Pauls lately! @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian has been such an inspiration to me for social media and now you two writing rock stars IMHO! #2315/11/2016 #23 Paul KemnerWow- this series is an excellent first fiction! Writing serial stories seems to be a great way to get started- you get feedback and encouragement as you go along, and it's a lot easier to get someone to try a short chapter instead of something that will take weeks to read.
I agree with you that the female warrior and high-elder words would be the ones to keep- they describe important characters. You're using them frequently, so we get a chance to learn them.15/11/2016 #22 Pamela 🐝 Williams#21 I always thought I would love to get an actual Passamaquody tribal member to teach me how to say the words. On the site where I found the words there are pronunciations available, but even still they are extremely difficult to verbalize. You never know exactly how they sound things out. Like German. I sometimes find myself reverting to German pronunciations of certain words that I can tell are of German origin. No I don't speak German but I took so many German grammar classes the pronunciations come easily if the vocabulary does not.!!15/11/2016 #21 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#20 That's one of those things that someone will either love or hate. I thought it brought so much of the world alive, and you used the parentheses at just the right time. But for a larger audience, I can see it being a stumbling block...there has to be a both/and situation of using the words as enrichment while keeping the readers in the flow of the story. Audio comes to mind..... a short clip of how to say the words might help the sounders-outers in the crowd, for instance.15/11/2016 #20 Pamela 🐝 Williams#19 If I do a rewrite and expand the story I've decided, with the help of some very nice writers whom I turned to for advice, to simplify the use of the words, but there are some I'll keep just because I liked them! Like the word for the high elder and the female warrior. They seemed add 'punch' to the characters. and roles.15/11/2016 #19 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#15 I did want to report back that I both am glad I binge read the first 9 installments, because it really built a world for me, but that my initial reason, to be able to follow the complex use of names, turned out to not be an issue. You did a great job in keeping the flow of all the new terms easy to remember without the reader needing to generate their own cliff notes.15/11/2016 #17 Pamela 🐝 Williams#12 Well I sent you on a roller coaster ride of emotions on this journey @Donna-Luisa Eversley, I'm so glad it ended with a happy sigh for you. So, how are you feeling about Running Deer now? Go ahead, admit it, maybe we all have the potential to be a bit mean when our heart is broken. We're human, all of us, we all say and do things we wish we could take back. It's about finding the strength to move on, just one step forward.15/11/2016 #16 Pamela 🐝 Williams#14 I thought hard about the ending, even as I was writing the other chapters. I wanted it to end realistically; we all suffer losses and sometimes sacrifices have to be made to move forward in life. As I wrote in my reply to Franci; it ended with hope and dreams for the future. You've been a wonderful fan Fatima! thank you for that, my readers gave me the courage to finish the story.14/11/2016 #14 🐝 Fatima WilliamsOMG @Pamela 🐝 Williams I love the ending and it's a perfect end for this drama. I would have loved for them to have met to rekindle the love they had, which was blinded by guilt and revenge nevertheless I love it. Thank you so much for giving us such an entertaining engrossing story that connects to each one of us at a different level.
I am your fan and then your sister. I've loved fiction since I knew how to read and this is going to the grave with me. An absolute entertainer. 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗 High five ✋✋✋✋✋✋14/11/2016 #11 Deb 🐝 HelfrichWow, as far as I am concerned, it is the happiest of endings. Some times we just don't fit somewhere and we would fit perfectly somewhere else. Especially when someone with a very prominent role seems against us.
This was a gift, @Pamela 🐝 Williams View moreWow, as far as I am concerned, it is the happiest of endings. Some times we just don't fit somewhere and we would fit perfectly somewhere else. Especially when someone with a very prominent role seems against us.
This was a gift, @Pamela 🐝 Williams Really and truly a fantastic piece of art. Close13/11/2016 #7 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#6 I think I understand your mushy self a bit! Remember, dont lose hope . Its easy to let go of hope when things feel as though they are crumbling around us, thats when we need others as reminders or 'pick me uppers'.. no not drugs (referring to my phrase, uppers') lol, just ways to uplift our spirits!13/11/2016 #6 Pamela 🐝 Williams#4 I'm going to show my mushy self again and admit that I was sitting in my favorite coffee shop downtown and cried as I wrote the last few paragraphs of this story. Whether they were tears of happiness that Kisuhs Nicanol and Running Deer found peace or tears of sadness because she had to leave all that she knew is still a question I'm asking myself. What I liked most about the ending was that the high elder, a true leader, was willing to make the sacrifice of banishing his wife if Kisuhs Nicanol chose to stay, that he also realized that if the young warrior was to live life to the fullest she had to make the decision to simply live. As I told you on the phone; I don't understand where this story came from, or why I was driven to write it, but I know it wasn't mine. Live in Peace and Hope my friend.13/11/2016 #5 Pamela 🐝 Williams#3 As I told Deb in a comment; not what I would call a 'happy ending' but the best ending that could occur. Sometimes sacrifices have to be made for the betterment of everyone. She now has family and hope, and in the end, isn't that what matters? That after all the trials and tribulations that we all suffer, that there is in the end; hope?
