Jumping In

Welcome!  So glad you've found your way here.  Bee a Little Better is a project that's been on my mind for almost a year.  Finally I've given up the excuses and the fear and decided to just start.  There are a lot of things I'm not good at, and a lot of things I'm not interested in being good at, but one thing that I have learned about myself is that I'm always trying (or at least desiring) to be a better person.  Bee a Little Better is my journey to improve and a gathering place for the inspiration I find along the way.

One of my greatest motivations is seeing the examples of others.  I love watching the dedication of runners training for marathons.  I marvel at the strength of mothers who make great sacrifices and endure great heartaches in the raising of their children.  I am amazed by those who experience physical challenges and manage their lives without complaint and instead with a passion for life.  I believe people are awe-inspiring.  Everyone has a story, and the learning and sharing that happens when we share our stories is powerful.  I love these thoughts:

""We are all in this together. We need each other. Oh, how we need each other... We need deep and satisfying and loyal friendships with each other. These friendships are a necessary source of sustenance."- Marjorie Pay Hinckley

Bee a Little Better will celebrate the human experience and all that we have to learn from each other.  I have a lot to learn, and I'm excited to see where this adventure takes me.  I hope you'll come along for the ride.

You said something that reminded me of this powerful video (about 20 minutes...but so worth it). The beauty IS in the struggle at times. No pressure to watch. It's changed how I think...
