The other day, I trapped a bee (or is that a wasp?). I was particularly thrilled to catch this stinging creature with a new baby in the house but I don’t kill animals, even bees. So, I carefully transported the bee (in a very nice Glassybaby Votive Holder, natch!) outside, uncovered the top and quickly stepped back.
The bee had no idea that it was free to go. It frantically buzzed and walked around the bottom of the votive holder, never looking up once and never trying to find an alternative way out. I finally got bored of waiting to get my votive holder back and tipped the cup over to put the bee out of its self-imposed cage.
The bee’s behavior got me thinking about me as a businessperson, wife and friend. Where are my blindspots? What are the areas in my life that I am not looking for alternative solution? And, what problems could have difficult solutions if I just tipped them on their sides and looked at them another way?
Thought for the week: Where in your life are you not looking up? Where are you not seeing the possibilities?
