People are still people, disabled or not. In contemplating various outlooks on life, I named them the bee-attitudes.
May-bee. A noncommittal buzz lacking passion, dependability, or predictability. The may-bee flies aimlessly at whim without a sense of direction or purpose.
Wanna-bee. An envious stinger filled with grandiose illusions and lack of conviction. The wanna-bee is lost within the ambitions of self-centered pride.
From Romper Room:
Don’t-bee. Making deliberate destructive choices or doing nothing…indifference.
Do-bee. Worker mindset. Creative, busy, active, exploring.
I learned about succeeding in life as a preschooler from Romper Room – “Bend and stretch, reach for the sky”…as a Do Bee.
Attitude is sometimes a struggle for me. I have my off days of may-bee, wanna-bee, and don’t-bee. Flying with a bumblebee do-bee attitude, I want to reach for the sky.
Ironically, the meaning of my name, Debbie, is bee.
