    @Anne ๐Ÿ Thornley-Brown, MBA, This is an impressive list that tells a lot about unquestionable writing skills. I wish you continued success, dream assignments including Inc. Magazine and Forbes in the near future, a lot of good and paid articles, and congratulate you on all that you have already achieved. I write out of my profession only when I have inspiration. Which means rarely :) And my connections in social media are a constant source of inspiration, both professionally and socially. I learned a lot. Therefore, I won't show you mine, but please fell free to show me yours achievements in writing. I'm a careful reader.

    #40 @Ian Weinberg I think so too --once was enough with that one, lol. Also the critical part was (not being able to make It across) that I landed it on the main runway at Philadelphia International Airport!
    The thing is, at the time I thought I was doing the "sane thing" because of the weather and not being instrument rated...my instructor's "voice in my head" was telling me that the riskier thing would be to fly blind into those "billowing into the stratosphere" cumulonimbus --JFK Jr. substantiated that --12years later.

    My great uncle ran a dairy...he flew B-25's in WWII...after the war he used the Cub to land on cowpastures around the Northeast to get milk samples from different farmers...and to drink heavily and not maintain the aircraft . I couldn't afford to "pay for hours" so he let me use that "death trap" for free!
    Until that fateful day in Philly... I never got instrument rated; because later that summer I was old enough to get my driver's license!

    #38 I'm impressed @Gerald Hecht There's something about experiencing the 'edge' that puts a different spin on things. I think that as one gets older we lose a bit of that boldness. I'm glad I exercised my madness in the earlier years (we were invincible weren't we?) because I've lost the nerve for much of it now.

    Welcome the honey Debasish ! Watch out for one word that I have begun to see being used rather a lot, which is the word hyperbole or hyperbolic, somehow it is one of those words that is getting more airplay in the zeitgeist right now. Hyperbole means excess, overstatement, exaggeration, embellishment and fellow netizens may all becoming hyperbolic about hyperbole is kind of strangely ironic :-) I am sure someone famous must have said it or sung about it or filmed it but it is seems like the currency right now. Let's just hope it wasn't triggered by something Trump said or did for our obsession with Mr. T. is now definitely excessive.

    #11 Water finds what is level and you have found yours, my friend! By all accounts, this buzz is raising important issues which is commendable, perhaps at the cost of a little levity - well worth it! Just look at the comments, debate, comprehension this is bringing up.
    Always, from the other side of the pond, Americans seem to feel they have no voice, no worth (forgive me my interpretation). It's endemic and follows through with what the Europeans have long known; just how very conservative the Americans are....certainly not in Kansas anymore.....
    Deb ๐Ÿ Helfrich
    20/07/2017 #19 Deb ๐Ÿ Helfrich
    #17 Organic is very old in America where food is supposed to be shelf-stable. That is what every single food purveyor dreams of.

    But in making it non-digestible by air-based bugs, we've also made most of it non-digestible by gut-based bugs as well.

    The vast majority of packages in American stores contain stuff we simply are not able to digest. And this often means things end up in our bloodstream that are very hazardous, indeed.

    Broccoli stalks are a good metaphor for the decisions being made for consumers without any regard to nutritional availability.

    As usual, we've sold our souls to an easy but overall useless metric, caloric totals, when what really matters to our health is whether or not we can digest the food into usable nutrients. One very reliable prompt to over-eating is being micro-nutrient deficient.

    #15 I do see the method to your 'grumbling', Joyce. You gain strength from shooting straight from the hip, getting it all out, calling all the spades, as such. Then you go through.

    I can get a little verklempt - okay a LOT. And, frankly, therefore stuck.

    So I glimpse horrific wrong, outside my direct actionable environs, and try to envision how to make this impossible in the future.

    Look, we are a society heavily burdened with punishment. We aren't caring for kids because we are caring for criminals. This way does not deter, we've proven it. Although, we also need to address how we glamorize law breakers....

    What does deter is when a person is fully loved by those around them. The main driver in our society is how we exchange all our time for very little money. This keeps people from showering those they love with affection in all sorts of ways.

    If everyone had a right livelihood, if we as a society invested in this core principle, so much would change.

    I have no idea how to make this happen by September or 2020. But I know talking about it is the way to open up more minds to the damage of our current world of work - and significant lack thereof - and how this system perpetuates all of our societal ills.

    They require first seeing outside the current systems. It's going to be a long time before this happens. There's a new term in the market " Organic" weren't all food suppossed to be that way. Money & desires making man blinded from knowing his own daughter and mother this would apply to nature as well. Realisation is the only weopon we have now and one that noone can take away.

    #9 We do have a lot of choices. But they require first seeing outside the current systems. Having open debate on what better frameworks can be created. And being willing to endure difficult change.

    It certainly is the case that we've numbed ourselves with material possessions and given ownership of our health to ever increasing work stress, both of which essentially mean that the agglomeration of wealth by the few is a very difficult structure to topple.

    But if we squash the discussion right from the moment it arises, which is the tendency right now from all corners, it will only be a handful of years until all self-preservation instincts are industrialized right out of us.

    #7 I was hoping that line helped people realize I wasn't actually mourning broccoli stalks in isolation, but all the tiny little ways the massive industrialization of our lives, without representation, is squelching the small delights of being alive.

    We really are only about 3.7 years away from absolutely everything being owned by 11 corporations. Who cares if the precise numbers are factual the concept is rippling around us with ever stronger frequency.

    Every aspect of our lives, what we eat, wear, and think is being sanitized and standardized.

    This is reminiscent of the warped way our silly little society works...The more profitable 'pretty little pieces' can stay because they are pleasing to the eye and effortless to prepare...whereas the real soul food is thrown out with the trash because we cannot 'see' it's value.

    Love this @Deb ๐Ÿ Helfrich! The icing is 'Broccoli brings us joy'!
    I save all my veggies cut-offs (except for celery leaves, eggplant and zucchini - bitter) for the freezer. Bones, carcasses, herbs stalks - all goes into stock that I will slowly boil down over a couple of days when my frozen stash justifies my largest pot. Old or too soft tomatoes, carrots, and anything else threatening goes into the freezer to add to my mass.
    Zanzi is glowingly healthy - and cute!!

    @Deb ๐Ÿ Helfrich I love seeing the photos of Zanzi! I love that Zanzi loves broccoli! I will have to let River give it a try. I know we have regular stalks here at our markets. Farm grown. I wonder what they do with the stalks? I know some frozen broccoli has stalks and florets?
    Joanne Gardocki
    20/07/2017 #1 Joanne Gardocki
    Glad the florets helped your doggie's stomach. I know this won't help the loss of stalk but may take the sting out a bit, I buy broccoli slaw which is shredded (fine julienne) broccoli stalk so the stalks are getting used to some degree, not just thrown away. Are you in an area with local farms? Organic co-op? There's a small local chain here called Produce Junction that gets crated veggies which may have broccoli with stems. Possibly privately owned organic pet food store might be interested in fresh broccoli "bones". Make sure you post updates on progress, @Deb ๐Ÿ Helfrich.

    @Franci๐ŸEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador this means so much.

    I was sincerely JUST sitting here musing, after our evening dog walk, that we really never know what will happen next.

    It's up to us to decide to do the work, but it is rather futile to fret about outcomes when initiating anything scary, new, exciting, and potentially life-changing.

    Thank you!

    @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. International Management, Certified Executive Coach. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc. I usually visualize my personal Unknown as being "outside." You have thoughtfully reversed that with powerful "inside" images for an Unknown that is hidden in the heart, in the egg, in the bubble, and in the seed hidden under the soil.

    #41 I agree with what Lisa says: we have to be honest with ourselves and that's the ideal Karma. Plus that's the basic requirement also. Further, @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher is once again dot on in her perspective when she says that ... there are parts best left untouched... yet. those parts can be understood with correct training. This is like knowing the contents of the medicine, however taking it only when prescribed by a qualified physician.

    The unknown is known by someone else. There is comfort in this statement as we consider moving forward. If i can communicate correctly and identify those that my unknown is their known, i can navigate and share a journey with that person.

    Control is something i must give up in order to share the journey, i must be teachable.

    For me to do this i also must understand my own pride. Pride is the biggest maker of fear. The walls of pride stop me from seeing past many obstacles to my own success, creating a journey where fear funnels me past success.

    The irony, one of the greatest joys of existance is helping others through their journey. The person we helped had to stow their pride and accept the shared journey. Yet i cant release my own pride.

    The word karma is interchangeable with narrative. A prideful narrative creates a blindness that establishes a reoccurring theme of missed opportunities.

    Thought proving post.

    "K arma, is what we create by the choices we make. When we respect our heart's desires and do no harm to others by achieving these, life will always reward us. It is one of the laws of living a fulfilling life." I'm still waiting for more good Karma :)) All kidding aside, wonderful points @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. International Management, Certified Executive Coach. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc. As for the unknown, there are times I want to know and other times it's best not to know.

    Thanks so much, Liesbeth, for this poetically profound and inspirational buzz. You make many excellent points. I was watching a music documentary on HBO the other night in which Bruce Springsteen offered some words of wisdom about a very successful music producer on his first album, "Born to Run" (the music producer is not well known outside of the industry).
    Springsteen attributed to this music producer's success to: "A tremendous lack of fear for moving forward."
    The music producer provided this sage advice: " Make fear your tailwind, not your headwind."
    It's also about putting fear by the wayside and confidently taking that leap of faith into the unknown. That's the way to achieve success. But it's easier said than done.

    @Deb ๐Ÿ Helfrich

    I think financially, being a cop for a few years makes sense. I mean getting into those creative positions is not easy. Hell getting a good position in anything is not easy. I have a friend who keeps declaring the best job for me would be actress, but i laugh at him because that definitely feels like going on a wild goose chase. If i was 18 i would chase some geese, but right now i just want to have a decent salary position. Creativity is not necessary. I feel like i need more financial stability before i can even think about being creative as a hobby or for an extra income. If what we write about we bring about, Lyon Brave brings about the Law bitches...just kidding.

    I mostly make coffee at home too, but it is nice to grab a cup in the city from time to time. Maybe read a book.

    22/06/2017 #132 Deb ๐Ÿ Helfrich
    #131 I am here because I love the rain, the gray, the views. You know, I don't go out for coffee much, because it is mostly about buying milk and dairy protein isn't my thing. I do love coffee, though, and I try to buy specific varietals and press pot them.

    Since I am going thru the near 50 mid-life crisis, and did so rather regularly since around 15, the only way to make 'em stop is to figure out how to live your own best life. Of course, this will likely evolve. And it often involves compromises to keep the income flowing.

    But when we diverge too far from our true nature, we are cruising for a crisis.

    I'll leave you with a phrase I think might be true - what you write about, you bring about. At least, there is a far greater chance than if it stays caged in your mind.

    #130 @Deb ๐Ÿ Helfrich Yeah i'm in CT. I'm going through a presumptive midlife crisis. I mean why wait till 50 to freakout and panic about my life. Right now i'm kind of torn between becoming a cop and going back to China to teach. I have been feeling the most stress I have ever felt. I think it's a combination of all my experiences are burdening me. I wish there were an easy way to hit the reset button and forgot things and experiences.

    #129 I certainly noticed you do add a very unique value with your buzzes, @Lyon Brave. We all have our style. Elaborate is not a standard, but a heartfelt, authentic comment is how we end up building a relationship.

    And that is what matters. Just a few words can spur a sense of understanding between two people - and then all sorts of magic can occur.

    So where are you? Still CT? I ended up driving back to Seattle, or well, middled up. The end is still far from being written.....

    haha I almost always blow by the comment section and drop in with a cool. The value I add is I noticed you, but i didn't leave too many thoughts. A good article should of said enough and usually other users have said everything there is to say. Currently, I don't have the time to be so elaborate. I focus on value in my own articles when do i have time. For this reason I hope my bebee friends are not cross with me when I don't always notice or comment on their brilliance.

    Thank you, @Deb ๐Ÿ Helfrich for sharing thoughts on beBee networking. What resonated "There are a lot of people talking about how the 'new' key to networking is to add value." linked to collaboration, which has been on my mind lately. Living in collaboration means more than networking which to me feels like "really I just want something from you." Living in collaboration means being in that sweet spot of potential where who I am transforms the subject of my focus in a positive way, creating greater value. There is no waiting for rewarded effort, the reward is concurrent with the comment as it brings out the best I have to give for another. Wonderful conversation, deep and wide, is what I love about beBee in the welcoming community here.

    The comments sections and the conversations we are all having are the heart and soul of beBee. It takes time and effort, but investing these human commodities is really the only way to unlock the world of opportunities waiting around the globe.

    Building trust and respect is not something that happens at the speed of the internet, but that is not to say that it cannot be done; we just have to go about it with sincere intentions and an understanding that we are dedicating our time and effort to a longer term outcome.

    #120 You make a very true point, @Lyon Brave. Time is of the essence.

    The key is to know why we are investing our time and then target our activities. There will always be some percentage of comments that are just for fun and joking around - but primarily all of us are investing time demonstrating who we are and what we can do in order to attract future opportunities.

    I comment consistently on beBee because I want this platform to succeed. I believe in the affinity concept and the open, engaging, and supportive community led by some great founders. It might be pro bono commenting right now, but I am certain there will be a measurable ROI in the near future.

    We will definitely have to come up with something outrageous to share with the Bees! Start planning Lisa! :-) Oh, and don't worry too much about making a little noise, I sleep like the dead! A hurricane could come through and I'd never know it. A couple of months ago a huge, and I mean HUGE, oak tree came down in our yard during a storm and I never heard a thing, the tree nor the storm. It took out a 6 ft chain link fence and crushed a brand new outbuilding in my neighbors yard...still I slept on! So no need to tiptoe!
    I love Justin, he's like Michael, he makes you want to dance dance dance dance!
    Oh, and we still need to write our blog: Men-oughta-Pause...LOL! I'll let you explain that one.

    Also, here's a great motivator IMHO to repeat when someone's morning begins (as deemed appropriate, of course, based on one's religion, spirituality, etc.):
    "This is the day that the Lord hath made, I shall rejoice and be glad in it."
    Well, at least it works for me. I find great meaning, peace and motivation through faith. There are similar sayings that can be found in the Book of Psalms. I also like the motivational messages of faith preached by minister Joel Osteen per his congregation in Houston, Texas. Most probably know his sermons are nationally televised on various cable TV networks and he is also a best-selling author.

    What a great read, Liesbeth, really exemplary for self-reflection and introspection. Keep in mind I may be a bit biased here not only because I hold you and your writing in such high esteem, but also because I'm nearing that mid-life age in which you so deftly describe, "We have outgrown our old selves and are ready to wear our new skin."
    For me, this involves my current job situation of over two decades in the public sector and my strong desire to transition and move forward with new challenges ASAP. The funny thing is that everyone always says things like, "Just be happy you have a government job" and/or, "the private sector is very risking in today's gig economy."
    In short, I receive much more negative feedback then positive. But I know because of that little voice inside (my gut feeling, intuition and instincts) that it's time to move on rather than hold on. Yes, taking that leap of faith with no risk no reward. But then fear of the unknown surfaces to hold me back.
    Therefore, your brilliant blogging buzz really helped me to view my own situation with a sharper focus. Albert Einstein and others have said," "Insanity [is] doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

    #3 Having been recently liberated by a 3rd party of all but a handful of my most precious photos, I can say there is definitely energy captured in those little rectangles of paper. Even ones we don't remember, since they'd been securely packed away for years. I scanned so much useless financial stuff and never thought of the scenario of the photos being taken.

    In my own case, I didn't immerse myself to the extent I could have. And getting into the feel of joyful immersion is exactly what I am courting right now. I can use moments like this one to calibrate my shifting into the calm, giggling present.

    "we are often our own worst captors and Independence from fear is a state of mind worth partying into." Totally agree @Deb ๐Ÿ Helfrich
    I enjoyed this snapshot of your life during your immersion summer in "gay Paree".

    "Sometimes a photo of a moment of simple, pure joy can be a gateway into reigniting that feeling, even decades later."

    I currently believe that photos contain the energy and trap the e-motions we associated with that time. A healer friend highlighted a photo that I passed daily in my environment (she had never physically seen my home), which was undermining my perception of my own authority. After that experience, I proceeded to release my attachment to a number of photos I was fond of, and burned them. I felt incredibly lighter afterwards, but the head work to let go of the argument for keeping them for sentimental value was "interesting" to say the least.

    I don't think we realise during our youth just how carefree and fun-filled life can be - we just live it. We create the fun; we take those good times for granted and then we "grow up" and partying falls further down the priorities list. As Nike say (we 'should') "Just Do It!" โ˜บ

    #15@Sarah Elkins, There are many more details I could have elaborated on from this experience, but, I figured it was long-winded enough and didn't expect it get many views because of the length. Like your experience in New Zealand, it had a huge impact on my life. My current station in life doesn't allow for such adventures, even though I am open to the possibility. I did go for a short jaunt up a favorite river in the National Forest this weekend just to get away from the routine, however. I am glad you read this, as you are one of the people I especially wanted to view it.

    What an incredible memory you have, @Chas โœŒ๏ธ Wyatt! You could write 4 posts from the stories in this post, just slow them down add more detail about your experiences. I wonder why we are so much more attached to the adventures of our youth, than the adventures later in life. Though I can continue to write about my hitchhiking adventure in New Zealand, and I know it had huge impact on my life, I also love to reminisce about more recent adventures with my family. I think it's about being curious. As long as we keep that curiosity along with an adventurous spirit, there's no reason to place all of the importance in our past. Thoughts on that?

    Moments in time and true tales of life, Chas, are, for me at least, what should be the basis of this community of writers. If more bees wrote with such heartfelt reality and opened their soul like you have in this post, then we would all be better off. Those who proffer their self proclaimed expert advice, on all manner of activities on this platform, would do well to improve their credibility by personifying their journey.

    This is a remarkable tale, @Chas โœŒ๏ธ Wyatt, both in the way you've described details that create landscapes in my mind and for the way you've enlivened the journey with all sorts of human energies.

    #5 @Dean Owen, Thank you. It is Mt. Wai'ale'ale that is so wet. It is basically a swamp with a lake in the middle of it that feeds the numerous waterfalls.

    Travel writing enhanced with personal watercolours and not square pixels - now that is luxurious ! It is a beautiful speck of dirt although I would have liked to have known it back then. In the 90's it was a regular hop for me from Tokyo and I was strangely drawn to the brochures that claimed it was the wettest place on the planet, a tall claim to someone coming from England. The weather was always perfect. Beautifully written.

    The possibility of change comes when we finally accept that we are not living until we have the courage to risk all vulnerability. Do not hide your vulnerabilities, this is blood in the water to sharks and life just like poker, if you play the card, nobody can play it against you.
