Being in the right place at the right time is really simple now that I have observed the master of this activity.
The bee. Especially the great big bumble bees of August – high summer in North America.
Right now the Rose of Sharon, which is a prolific flowering shrub here in the south, is in full bloom. My garden has dozens of the shrubs which come in 3 different colors. A gorgeous white with a bit of red. You can see it in the picture to the right. I also have a light purple and a deep pink.
The bees are all over the flowers and deep within their petals. In the pictures I took, sometimes there we two big bees in the flowers at a time fussing over the pollen they are trying to collect. Trust me, in my yard there is enough for everyone.
The bees like the Rose of Sharon so much that they will try to wiggle their bee bodies into the curled up bud before it is even open. They want that pollen right now!
Most of the Rose Sharon flowers are short lived. Maybe a day or two, but not much more. So the bees need to get busy. They don’t want to miss this splendid event of the blooming. The shrub grows dozens of branches each year with as many as 30 flowers on each branch that bloom successively up the branch. You can almost watch the bees calculating their pursuing of the opening of the flowers on a daily basis.
Forget trying to weed under these shrubs when they are in full bloom. The bees bump into you rushing from flower to flower and branch to branch.
The right place at the right time.
The bees have this behavior knocked. They are the gurus of finding pollen and the Rose of Sharon better give it up for them. Boom.
You are also in the right place at the right time. If it is not feeling that way, then your guidance system needs some attention. It is not possible for us not to know what works for us. Our body, gut and mind tell us all day long what is good and what to do through our emotions and reactions.
We get covered up with doubt, negative self-talk and criticism so the message is tough to access or hear. What is a person to do when they are covered up with muck and can’t get to their true brilliant selves?
Well, you can take a deep breath and remove yourself from the environment that is creating the destructive situation to begin with…take a walk, hydrate, pray, read something nice, music, observing nature, checking in with your self talk and quieting it a bit.
AND…You could get a really good coach to help you too. What we do is help you grab hold of the bar to steady yourself, support a really positive mindset and help you uncover that really terrific person inside you…faster than you ever thought possible.
Let me help you guide you back to what is good about you and your life. We can be big bumble bees together and collect the best pollen of your life. CoachNatalie@NatalieManor.com
