I wonder if a wasp would wanna' be a bee? A wasp, a 'wannabee' honeybee? Do you reckon that wasps are jealous of bees? Honeybees are probably the most industrious, vital creatures on our planet. Honeybees are responsible for pollinating most edible plants. Honeybees get loads of positive publicity. Wasps, however, get loads of negative publicity.
So wasps may been envious of the honeybee. Then again, do you reckon that the honeybee may be jealous of the wasp? If a honeybee stings you, its stinger will stick in you and the honeybee will die. The wasp, ofcourse, can sting and sting and live to sting another time.
Comparisons, envy, jealousy, longing to have what someone else has. The old ' keeping up with Jones' scenario. Aspirations of having the same or better than our neighbour. Why do we place such importance on material things in some meaningless 'rat race'?
If we can learn to be comfortable with who we are; we can understand that competing with our fellow man, to outdo them, is really quite pointless. Is it not better that we live in harmony? Is it not better to be pleased with the accomplishments of others and pursue the goals that make us truly happy?
Be the best than you can be. Why stress yourself out comparing yourself to others? It is your life and you are unique. Celebrate your special uniqueness. When we discover that inner contentment; we discover that embracing all our diversities, without comparison, without jealousy, will make this world a better place.
This 'bug blog' is coming to an end. We have gone from 'a' to 'bee'. We know that we are the 'bees' knees'. The honeybee will go about its 'buzziness' and the wasp will get on with its life. Right then I will conclude by saying that this blog has 'no sting in its tail'.
