I’ve Always Been a Bit of a Rebel

I’ve always been a bit of a rebel. It was something that gave my parents a gray hair or two. I call myself the black sheep of the family although my sister says that she is. So, we do what twins do – we share the title of black sheep! But, let’s be real, my sheep would actually be blue. I’ve always said I’d paint myself blue if I could because I love the color blue so much.

I know, you wish I would just get to the point. That is another thing you will learn about me. I like to take a meandering walk to the point. Hopefully, I keep you engaged along the way!

I tapped into my rebel side.

So, when I was creating my business and deciding on a logo, I tapped into my rebel side and went against the grain. Instead of choosing the butterfly which is the mascot for Fibromyalgia, I chose the bee. Initially, it may seem strange – of all the logos I could have chosen why a bee.
Let me give you the 411 on the symbolism of the bee. This way you will understand the relevance of this mighty insect to Positively Powerful.

Here are a couple things to buzz about:

  •  Miracles

    • When a bee buzzes around you, it’s a reminder to trust in miracles.
  • Peace and love

    • A bee’s wish is for all living things to live in peace and love.
  • Abundance

    • A bee manifests abundance.
  • Productivity

    • The most common message it carries has to do with your levels of productivity.
    • Maybe you’re doing too much or maybe at other times not enough. The bee’s spirit has a strong work ethic but also knows the        importance of stopping and smelling the flowers.
  • Bees are not meant to fly.

    • Technically speaking, a bee should not be able to fly because of how it is aerodynamically designed.
    • What’s fascinating about this is that it speaks to our limitations and how to move past them successfully.  Ahh-Blocker!
    • A bee doesn’t know it is not supposed to fly – it just flies, and so can YOU!
    • Where there is a will, there is a way!
  • Bees are a necessity to life.

    • An interesting fact is that Einstein believed so deeply in the importance of bees to the ecosystem he predicted that if bees disappeared humans would not survive for more than four years afterward.
  • Mindful Service

    • The pollination process symbolizes our social nature.  Bees live and work as a community. They enrich the world as they pollinate from flower to flower.By working together, they teach us about networking and community service. Bee people often become teachers, motivational speakers and healers – Mindful Service
  • Warmth

    • The bee has a strong tie to the sun, light and warmth – something people say about me all the time. I’m just a ray of sunshine! Hehe!
    • The bee gives you clarity about your path in life.
  • Protector

    •  The bee spirit is a strong protector.
    • Bees represent those defending the underdog as well as those they love with fierceness. Hmm…I always thought that was the           mamma bear in me. I guess it’s the sting of the bee instead!

We can fly even when we are not supposed to.

As you can see, the bee carries a lot of symbolism – symbolism that resonates with me and with my journey from Fibromyalgia to Fibro-DREAM-gia and yours with COVID-My-Dream Life.  Just like the bee, we can fly even when we’re not supposed to. And, as the bee pollinates the flowers bringing beauty to the world around us, we too can bring beauty and joy to lives of others.

Be sure to watch my Facebook page this week where I will be posting additional fun facts about bees. You can also find this information and more great things on my Pinterest page.
