I was writing to someone – making an analogy about bees; explaining how bees are attracted to sweet things, work hard and serve their queen. Cute turn of phrase I thought.
I wondered about perspective for boys and young men – old men too, how our successes in relationships might be better if we behaved more bee-like.
No equivalent message for women – I’m only able to see my boy-bee-view.
At this point in you are wondering what-the-heck I am talking about – consider the notion of being attracted to someone, like that worker bee to every flower – doing its work, gathering life’s sweetness only to go home at the end of its shift, depositing his day’s harvest as a gift to his queen. Then the next day, the same – day after day, shift after shift, working with just one goal in mind.
Do we ever do that? Do we start our day with ‘one goal in mind’, one thing/issue/project or person to focus on all day? I know we all often say that, but how often do we do that – to the exclusion of every other important thing, to the exclusion of every distraction and frivolous thing, to just focus.
