Authentic Happiness – Can A Bee Show You How to Find Happiness?

By: Joyce Marie

My husband, Brian, finds happiness from saving bees, one bee at a time. Where does he save bees? Right in our backyard.

Just outside his office is a swimming pool, and since there is a door right there by his desk, Brian frequently goes outside for a break – when the weather is nice, of course. While out there, he scans the pool for any unfortunate bees that are struggling to get out. Almost every day he finds one.

When he spots a bee exerting all its energy, going in circles in the pool, Brian makes his move. He wants to save the bee that cannot fly because its wings are wet. Picking up the bee on his finger, Brian knows this bee wants to be saved.

The bee clings to his finger, and Brian has no fear of the gentle bee. The poor bee is disoriented, not knowing where it is. It just wants to survive, and it is grateful to be on Brian’s finger.

Brian nudges the bee to keep it moving. As he watches, the bee tries to dry off. It raises its rear end upward and uses its little legs to wipe itself dry. Then the back end of the bee goes down and the front end goes up. The bee then uses its front legs and feet to dry its head and antennae.

The wings of the bee are stuck to its body, so Brian lifts up the wings to help them get dried out. After a while, the wings begin to whir like a helicopter or the propeller of an airplane. Then the bee zooms off, like a helicopter!

As Brian watches, the bee heads toward him,

touching his forehead, and then it flies away! Touching Brian’s forehead must be his way of saying thank you.

Meanwhile, Brian is watching, enjoying the drying process of the bee, followed by the whirring of its wings, its takeoff and the thank you sign. As he says, it is very interesting to watch, and it makes him happy to play a role in the survival of the bee.

And Brian is so nice to occasionally let me interact with the bee on his finger. That makes me happy.

Maybe it is not among your ways of how to find happiness, but have you ever tried it? It is always good to be open to new ways of finding happiness. Would you agree?

I cannot say that I blame you if you do not want to use this method to save a bee. After all, you might be afraid of getting stung. Maybe you are allergic to bees. And there are many other ways you can choose to find happiness.

However you are finding happiness, do remember just how important bees are to our planet. You should not have too much difficulty finding out why, if you do not already know. Just do a little research online or at the library.

So, anyway, here is how to find happiness another way. Observe what is around you while you are outside in nature. Something or someone out there would love to get your attention. Even the plants and trees. Send some loving energy to them and feel authentic happiness!

Release a smile as you send good vibrations out into the universe!

    I find my happiness in several ways.

    1 – Watching my children develop as young adults, learning from life.

    2 – Doing the things I am called to do – Building in the lives of others. Some days this is difficult, but each is a reward.

    3 – Looking into the eyes my wonderful wife; knowing she we stand in this life together no matter what.

    These things and more bring me much happiness.

    I guess the bees would all be happier if Brian removed the pool completely! Seriously though, good on you for saving the little blighters – I just hope one of them doesn’t thank him one day by stinging him!

  8. joyce Says:

    Rod, thanks for your comments. If only it were simple to remove the pool, we would! Yesterday Brian let me save a bee…a big one! That bee was on my hand and arm for a long time, crawling around and drying itself. I was amazed at how it could cling to my finger with its legs while its body was upside down.

    I loved that little cute story.
    You know how to write so vividly.
    You know how to appreciate the moment too.
    Happiness is not in the outside…
    Happiness resides in our heart and soul, in our attitude,
    in the way we look at our wonderful world.
    Miracles are around us. We just have to pay attention…
    Peace, Love, Happiness

    Hey I just wanted to let you know, I actually like the written material on your web site. But I am using Chromium on a machine running version 9.04 of Crashbang Ubuntu and the look and feel aren’t quite proper. Not a big deal, I can still fundamentally read the articles and research for info, but just wanted to inform you about that. The navigation bar is kind of tough to use with the config I’m running. Keep up the good work!

    Thank you, Ziya. Have you tried viewing my blog in Firefox or Internet Explorer?

  25. Bob Lipply@clearwater homes Says:

    This is what happiness is all about, there are many ways through which we can derive happiness and this depends on how we look at life itself. If we lack what it needs to get a deeper insight we cannot recognize the small packages of happiness which comes to us throughout the day.

  26. Joyce Says:

    That’s so true, Bob. Thanks for your comment. I appreciate you!

  27. Steve@Electric Cig Says:

    Happiness is not all about money. It’s about helping other people and helping your surrounding. Happiness comes in different ways and sometimes we take them for granted since we are more focus on earning money. Just like Brian, he find happiness by helping creatures in simple ways and yes i do agree that it’s indeed an authentic happiness.

    Interesting way to be happy though bees never come into my mind. But you have an unusual insight, I love watching bees and I realized they are actually very relaxing to look at and soo cute while they are so busy making honey… honey is my favourite syrup for may pancake! Thanks for sharing!

  30. Joyce Says:

    Hi Joan, I’m glad you enjoy bees, too!

  31. Bobby Says:

    What a delightful story! There are so many simple ways to boost our everyday satisfaction. My grandmother used to associate friends and loved ones with piece of jewelry in her fine gold and silver collection. She would wear an item whenever she felt a connection to that person on that day.

  32. Joyce Says:

    Thank you, Bobby! I love your story about your grandmother!
