    Dear Dear@Donna-Luisa Eversley I love being tagged on your posts but 🀐. πŸ˜‰

    I must have missed this as I was on holiday and I'm giving an excuse πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ Absolutely grateful to 2016 for having introduced you to me. Thank you for mentioning me 😍

    I always try to change my back stabbers in getting to like me by doing the exact opposite of what they do. This guilt makes them turn over a new leaf.

    It's takes a second to show yourself to others and many will love you for who You are. And that's exactly why we adore you.
    You are absolutely a cool Caribbean Queen. Wishing you only sweet dreams #beBeesforever #beBeelove Hugs Happy 2017 πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ˜˜

    As I was writing this post, I realise there are many divisive folks who hide behind smiles, etc. Evil comes in many guises. In the Harry Potter series good will always overcome evil, and so too good dreams come when you realise the light will shine brightly to cover the evil unveiled.

    Hi DL, I hope this finds you doing well and enjoying the holiday season.
    Regarding your statement: "Will you smile while stabbing another in the back? Do bystanders even care when the bus rolls over another brother / sister?" Well, unfortunately, that seems to depressingly be par for the course here in the Washington, DC-area. I assume that it's similar in other big metropolitan areas where folks are overly stressed out and have a poor work-life balance, if any.
    Thank goodness for the holiday season which tends to bring out the best in some of these stressed out and angry people, even though there will always be the proverbial Grinch around. Please be well and keep buzzing!

    It is undeniably the case that our dreams and nightmares reflect the environment around us, @Donna-Luisa Eversley. And I make it my mission to pass along the kindness and support necessary for sweet dreams to occur every chance I get.

    The question I find myself focusing on is the opposite one, though - what do you stand for when everyone is watching? Can you state a harsh truth, as you see it, with the greatest good in mind?

    My contribution to your peaceful sleep would be a re-read of the heart-warming story written just for you by the absolutely precious, @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. 🐝 beBee Brand Ambassador : https://www.bebee.com/producer/@liesbeth-leysen/lady-love

    #1 Aw, thank you Deb. That pic with the boots is 40 years old and it is a bit fuzzy, and I am surprised it is as clear as it is. I tried to make your picture clearer using Picmonkey but I wasn't successful. My intention was to thank you for your lovely contributions. You are such a gem and I love your comments and support. I love the hat and the fact that you wanted to celebrate it. I truly believe you, Donna-Luisa Eversley, Lisa Gallagher and I walk to the same beat.

    You made my freaking summer, Franci! I was thinking since all the avatar's are so small, no one would notice the poor quality of this photo taken on an actual disposable camera somewhere around 1990. Since I could come nowhere near your model pose with boots, I did want to celebrate the hat in your interview with Donna-Luisa.

    It's more accessible than other social media types. Facebook is only good for your friends. Twitter you can add everyone, but there is no connection even with all the tweeting. Instagram is causal and great for images, but not friends. I feel like at bebee, you can really make pen-pals and new friends, without coming off as a troll. I don't know why, but being a bee makes you more likable than a random on facebook.

    Every time you comment You share information that we would have otherwise not known. Like who knew there was a ""The Daughters of the American Revolution" in Washington DC. You talk about masculinity in its politics there. Imagine other parts of the world.

    Women are still being trampled in some places I know. I was disheartened to read political views on the recent Mass Molestation of women on New year's eve in Bangalore , when everyone all over the world were welcoming the New year.
    I wish that Women are looked up for more than just the feminine part that exists in them. I wish the world had more people like yourself. I wish 2017 brings more grace & humanness to the people & leaders of the world.

    Nature is so good at adapting to the environment. Humans have worked hard at making things from nature as if we are not nature. Now that the tide is turning and we are returning to a sense that we are nature, I imagine that nature will provide both metaphors and real strategies to mimic and adapt ourselves. (biomimicry) I imagine that the more we see ourselves as nature, and learn from nature herself, the better our strategies will be for how to live together in this beautiful world.

    β€œHuman people are not adults in full possession of their means.” is a powerful statement in a quiet way. "The fragility is the essence of men and women, and it is at the heart of humanity. And once you realize that, you accept your own fragility." is important to heed because once we come to terms with ourselves, we can understand suffering within others and ourselves.

    Weak. Fragile. Vulnerable. Those words used to be criticism and insults. But now, as we humans start to consider what makes us human in relation to the very real, very near potential of AI, the values in those words are changing. I recognized the name, Le Pichon, from studying plate tectonics with our sons during Earth science classes in school. I had no idea what else made him such an exceptional human being.

    #67 @Irene Hackett These styled discussions always make me think of musical chairs. Everyone is focused on the music and the empty chair that is closest to them. Our society, through systems, have initiated and nearly perfected, the game of musical chairs. We focus on the media or social alignment, music and our ability to seek success and joy, the chair.

    Neither of these goals are bad, it's the game. I don't play within that circus. I don't require the music or reflection of media to find my peace and joy. I will have to say, a lounge chair and a umbrella drink is required to watch the game from a distance:)

    "Oneness" i don't believe is the same as interdependence. This may be splitting hairs, but interdependence requires me to understand your journey and how we might benefit from each other. Oneness means that i need to not only share the journey but also belief systems. In this you and i can't be one. This journey of oneness is reserved for our spouses. I can share a portion of others journeys and each can benefit for the time.

    Our answer for interdependence is a homogenized viewpoint that i feel is ground zero for some of our cultural issues. We are requesting oneness in our belief systems when this is next to impossible. We have all refined our systems from our perspectives and the journey has showed us wisdom. In this we are each unique, not one. We can all share a portion of a journey over time but we can't all live in a journey that has been homogenized.

It is their duty - not to gloat about their strength and build a following of loyalists - but use it to raise the others to higher strength and productivity. Transform the weak into the strong...and nothing can be more heartbreaking than seeing a strong man falter and fall. Not just literally. And wise are those who Rise, after the fall.

    @Irene Hackett, @Ali Anani and @🐝 Fatima Williams thank you for comments and more importantly thank you for considering a different perspective of direction. Our journey as humans is one of interdependence. When we accept this our eyes are opened to possibilities that otherwise didn't exist under dependence or independent. The transformation into interdependence cant happen until we register a strong set of core values that include the success of others.

    Without these values then we will remain either dependent on others success for our own or be the ones others depend. Ali has shown, along with your article here that nature is interdependent this why nature is our guiding light for existence. Nature doesn't have the emotions humans have (in General) so it/they don't create barriers to interdependence.

    Within interdependence we have to have faith. Or in today's language, trust. We have to believe that by serving others the value will be returned in a form that is self fulfilling and rewarding. When we transform from independent our feedback could force us to remain where we are. Courage is needed to keep moving forward. It took us a long time to behave ourselves where we are and it will take a long time to behave our way out of independence.

    #54 @Milos Djukic, If i could be so bold as to state, future society, not future leaders, will understand their true value within the scope of fractal math and leaders will become organizers of resources. The larger question is will we arrive at this conclusion through discourse or because of our need for survival? In this concept of fractals i believe that the series will be served regardless the outcome. So time is the elusive equation we all seek.

    Unfortunately we have behaved ourselves into seeing completed fractal elements where folks do not belong nor engage. IMO i sense that this is because we are being taught/shown that individually we are our own fractal within a vacuum. This vacuum could not exist if the societal fractal wasn't present. Until we see that we are all a part of the fractal math and play our role, then time will be the discussion. The fractal cant move forward without each of us participating. The illusion of individual success implies that time is moving, where in fact the fractal development for the next stage is at a stand still. Waiting for the individual to recognize their role in development.

    We all seek that great leader that will draw society/company/country together and serve the fractal math in this context. Those leaders are already present, you and me. No one person can take this responsibility. It will take individuals that stop listening to the chatter of what success is and realize that the person next to you is who needs to be successful. Building each other is the fractal answer to the time equation.

If humanity is to be saved, it will be by the "regular guys" with grit, who will do the job.

    A story well told @Pascal Derrien. It's so sad because many of the homeless people are mentally ill and from what I've heard, suffer from Schizophrenia. Yes, there are those who are homeless because they lost it all but those who choose to live in the streets through out each bitter winter, well it brings tears to my eyes. You saw it first hand and I'm glad you touched so many lives. I'm sure you touched more than you were ever aware of. Thank you for sharing, you have a kind and caring heart- it's very evident in your writing. Obviously I never knew Joey, but I echo your sentiments, RIP Joey and to all the "Joeys" who died homeless.

    I would like to share with you something that resonates with the last three points in your buzz...Companionable Silence. Where you spend hours in the presence of someone whose aura doesn't disturb you at all in anyway. Could be anyone. No compulsion to make conversation. No need to touch or caress. Company that not only lets you be yourself but also acts as an ingredient to that harmony. Sometimes Silence is a conversation with the Self pregnant with suggestion, punctuated by our words! It is the sound of our sub-conscious perhaps? True silence is achieved only in deep meditation, where thoughts cease to distract or attract other thoughts! Thank you for broaching on a thought provoking subject. Silence is as unfathomable as it is deep, and becomes our master, as we sleep! Close

Then there is the extended family and the forgotten and even expelled child called "sadness" - and when all of that comes together in the flow of my own being - I reach towards finding flow with the value of living my life closer to a whole and not just in its parts. As for what others do and think, that is their business, whatever knocks your head back is your life choice I say, for this is simply my trip and I appreciate whatever trip another wishes that does not end in harm. Whose to say happiness will emerge unless we were happy. Close

    #3 Thank you @Neville Gaunt . Each one of us need coaching is my view on Coaching. Some accept it , other's don't. Whether people are ready to be coached depends on their readiness to accept that they need coaching. Once they have been coached they need to track their progress to make sure they don't fall behind. And if they do , that's when a Coach comes handy again. If they set new goals that need to be acquired then again they can approach a Coach.

    I find that most people are ready to accept coaching when you tell them that they need it and have seen employees grow in front of my eyes to reach the positions or goals they want. Thank you once again for your kind words.

    #12 Thanks, Don, for the link. It's a great video, makes an important point. I would say that one should consider some spec or reduced-rate work ONLY if one does not have a sufficient portfolio of past work to demonstrate what one can deliver. Once you have such a portfolio (and recommendations -- which are so important), there is absolutely no need to do spec work, and the request for same should be a red flag to doing business with the firm in question.

    When I was managing an engineering firm several years ago on consulting contract, the Navy put out a full RFP in connection with its troop ship-to-shore combat ferrying program. (The SSC-1 program). After dozens of firms put together proposals at a cost in the tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars to the "bidders", the Navy changed its mind, modified the requirements, and threw out all of the proposals. Put several firms out of business. The others refused to bid again.

    The key in submitting consulting proposals is to include sufficient teaser information to demonstrate that you know what you're talking about, but not so much as to enable the potential client to take your plan to a "cheaper" source for execution. For among other problems with that, make no mistake, you will own the failure, whether or not you got paid for the work. Cheers!

    @ @Irene Hackett - to continue our discussion, Irene, I agree, as well, that we are in the midst of a growing transition away from the historical model of long-term, full-time employment toward one of limited-term contractual employment. However, I think it a mistake to conflate the situation in respect of upper-level execs cast out of FT employment with that of middle and lower level people joining the ranks of unemployed. Highly paid top level execs often have the option of joining the ranks of business owners and entrepreneurs (not the same thing, BTW) whereas middle and lower level people will be seeking to reinvent themselves as consultants and contract workers. I submit that it is important to recognize and understand the differences and nuances. Cheers!

    #40 Dear Fatima, where else does happiness start or end other than within ourselves. It is we who have made it a thing by trying to make it a having rather than a being. One day my mother will pass from this world and it will not be a happy day and on that day the gift of sadness will be more accessible than the gift of happiness. That I can access that within me means that it can either be a blessing (a gift) or a curse (a theft). Happiness as a curse is not at all the same thing as happiness as a blessing. Happiness is not a simple off and on switch and it is nothing without sadness, it is a flow that emerges from within, which is what makes the pursuit of happiness an endless chase of vanity. The greatest vanity of all is to explain happiness when we are happy. If we need to go look for happiness in other things or people, all we will find there are the symbols and expressions of their vanity, and not our bliss. Take the Woodkids remix [Unhappy Version) of Pharrel Williams song Happy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyBFx18E6O4 - whatever you feel, whatever it triggers, how it effects you begins with what it evokes in you. This is what Socrates meant by "Know Thyself" - so why use my language or experiences of happiness - when they are within you and yours to discover? This means your question is a rhetorical question, which means you already know the answer, but are you ready for the practice, a practice that is yours to discover.

    #37 Thanks @CityVP 🐝 Manjit All our emotions are very important to each one of us. But do we really need to go looking for happiness in other things or people , can happiness not start with oneself ?

    If I get asked if happiness is important to me, this is like asking me "which of your children do you love?", but I reply "I love all my emotions" and unless I can love all of them, how can one of them be more important? It is when we hate some or most of our emotions that we are most likely to be in a search for happiness but searching for happiness is like getting on a rocket ship and head out into the distant Universe so that we can find Earth.

    #23 Wow @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher some of my friends @HCL also send me messages saying the same thing. They always wondered what made me so lively and thought that I had no problems to deal with ( Believe me I had many) , but what they failed to realize is the value the power and potential of happiness , what it could do to us in helping us in our lives. With all the sadness happening in the world, the only thing that can keep us going, is spreading happiness. Stay Happy always Hugs πŸ€—πŸ€—

    #22 Thank you @Jim Cody 🐝 . Happiness also comes through people who are genuine and kind like yourself. Stay Happy always :) I love what you said in your profile about " Life is too short. Hug often and tell your family and loved ones you love them " This is the pathway or ingredients to cooking Happiness in our lives.
    Talking about Hugs when I left my last job , I hugged one of the house keeping ladies ( Name:Dalanamayendi) to say goodbye to her , thanked her for doing her job which she mostly cribbed about ( LoL ) and I always took up her issues with the admin team ( to make her happy), to show her that she needed to express her work feelings to her seniors to be helped. When I hugged her in her uniform the Happiness in her face was unfathomable and at that minute I realized - the power of a hug. So Happiness and hugs go well together :)
