Today, positively b.e.e. reached a small but significant milestone!

Exactly one month ago today, I launched this site to bring more positivity, light, joy, and gratitude to the world, and I’m thrilled you’ve joined me for the journey.

In the past month, there have been over a thousand visitors to positively b.e.e. from all over the world! And the Facebook page has reached 122 likes as of this writing. YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!

I’m wondering if I can ask you a small favor? I’ve received many kind messages/PMs/comments from you, telling me what this site and its purpose means to you. If you are enjoying what you see here, would you be willing to help me to grow outreach for this little nugget of positivity on the web?

Tell your friends and family. Link to the blog. Share and "like" the Facebook page. Any of these actions will help me get the message out: that life is worth living; that there are good things in the world, even when it seems scary or dark or contentious; that there are better ways of dealing with difficult things; and that fun and beauty are worth noticing and sharing with others.

Thank you, ALL of you, for reading, sharing, commenting, or sending in your support. However you use this site, it’s for you. Knowing that positively b.e.e. can make a difference in someone’s life is why I write. Let’s all “bee” positive together!

Fortune Cookie Friday: The Means of Happiness

Ok, so, as I mentioned in this post here, Fortune Cookie Friday will be an occasional feature here at positively b.e.e. I get a lot of these every time I order Chinese food or go out, plus I sometimes buy a package of them (you can get a big box here), because I like them a lot.

I find the sayings inside often start a train of thought, for me, so I may as well share those trains here and see what you have to say about it, and I invite you to share your fortune cookie fortunes with me as well!

So without further adieu, the first fortune cookie fortune on this site:

"We cannot be happy unless we think we are the means of good to others."
What do you guys think of that?

My first, knee-jerk reaction to this was: "Nah."

But that was my brain trying to get in the way of my heart. When I tell my brain to pipe down, I get so much more out of thi…

Fortune Cookie Friday: Bide Your Time

Hello fortune lovers! I hope you have had a most excellent week!

Here is today's fortune:

Bide your time, for success is near.
This one has me scratching my head a tiny bit. Is it saying to just cool my heels and wait for success to show up? I mean, to bide your time means to wait, but I've never been good at that. :) Let's explore this concept a little more.

Imagine the following scenario:

You really want to launch a new business. You develop a product, and then put it up on the internet to sell it. Do you then sit back and wait to see if it'll sell?

You're going to market it, right? You're going to place ads, tell everyone you know, maybe hold an open house or pass out flyers or business cards.

That said, there is value in patiently following the steps you need in order to be successful, and not shortcutting on any of the stages or materials.

Fortune Cookie Friday: The Roving Bee

Hello, and happy Friday! I hope you've all had a great week. It is Fortune Cookie Friday, so let's see what today holds:
It's the roving bee 🐝 that gathers honey. 🍯
First of all, I'd like to start with a side note: I love how my house is a virtual scavenger hunt when it comes to fortunes. It's fun for me when I find them. I have these things tucked away in all kinds of tiny little places, and it never ceases to amaze me when I come upon one that seems to speak exactly to what I'm thinking at the time. This one was tucked away in a drawer, with a rusty old paperclip on it. I have no idea what it used to be clipped to, by the way, but I took the clip off to take the photo, and it left those imprints on the paper. I don't even know how long I've had this one, but it has probably traveled with me through several moves over sever…
