Here's Why I'm Missing My Honey - Paradigm Shift !

Living in Dubai I never take alot of time off work for a holiday. With my sister in town this past year I take advantage of the situation and give myself alot of breaks. My weekend spent only for family and friends. I've been reading alot of books drastically reducing my onscreen reading time.

And one of the best news this Christmas is, after months of looking for the right job, my sister Sheryl finally got offered a challenging role in one of the top 10 companies in the UAE.Β 

n town for the last few months. Alot of Sister Time. Soaking up the sun. Feeling the love.Β 

Out of the many places we hang out quite often I love the desert. The beauty of the sand dunes, the stillness is a timeless story, I get lost in thought looking at it.Β 



Here's Why I'm Missing My Honey - Paradigm Shift !

Last year was about finding my purpose and this year has been so enlightening understanding my value proposition to the people around me and to the world.Β 

Though I haven't been writing alot, I have been reading each of your honey filled articles. I love extending my support to my fellow favorite Bees via Linkedin, Twitter and the beBee newsletter.Β 

I've had an excess of social media in the last few months and the intake was overflowing. I had to take a step back and observe. As many of you know me I am a learner and when I have an information overboard I take a step back, re-evaluate and relax. Which is exactly what I've been doing the last couple of months.

I lost my best friend this year and I will talk about that Happy Soul in my next buzz. She left a deep impact on me changing my life forever!Β 

I realize when these tipping points arise, they are moments in our life that are accompanied by curious and even challenging moments.

It dawned to me the potential developing within us is greater than the challenge of the work we are doing, so unless we are doing meaningful work we cannot pinpoint where?Β 

My recent favorite read on beBee is Dr. Anani's recent article -Β  Is Self-Awareness a Remote Dream?

He talks about how "We need to know where we stand to know where we are going. The paradox is that the more we know where we stand now becomes less-known as we get to know more about ourselves."

I commented to his buzz "Self awareness is currently undergoing a paradigm shift in the name of finding purpose in life, love and our jobs. I agree with Pascal that no one can attain 100% of awareness of the self but what most people are currently doing is looking at their feelings and matching their character with what fulfilled them and gives them purpose in life. Thereby indirectly attaining a self awareness state knowing if one is conscious of and wants in life!"

And I agree with Harvey Lloyd'sΒ  comment as what he said resonates with me!

Β "This new paradigm of self awareness and follow your feelings leads us to circular, frustrating self worth analysis. Almost as if we are trapped in the matrix. When in fact we should see our environment as a fluid ever changing ecosystem of success and failure. With each cycle I am measuring my own footprint (self awareness) within the cycle. The cycle is permanent, I am the variable.Β 

With each cycle I self evaluate and become wise from what worked and what did not based on my own inputs."

Harvey

I am connecting the dots and it is a straight line with infinite possibilities than a circle.

I learn to continue to trust myself, it is a process of transformation and growth. I learn what a transition is and how it can be a moment of great growth.Β 

It required me to have a lot of patience, to stand above the many side-track distractions.Β 

As my life shifts and transforms, things are beginning to settle down to a new pattern. as I continue on a path of growth and learning development. I have never been more confident than I am right now and will continue making a difference in the lives of the people around me living a testimony of how well we can live!

A big hug and Thank you to , Harvey Lloyd , Ian Weinbergand as they have played a critical role in my learning journey.

I've learnt that this is not an end-point but a beginning point, facts that life is pointing me in a different direction and no one including me knows what that is.Β 

I must become a master of this uncertainty and turn these energies towards opening my mind about what will enlargen and make best use of my life.

I'm sure you've seen me come by and say hello because I care about each person here on beBee and I share a great affinity with each one of you.

I love beBee and all the honey I consume here but I should agree that over the last few months there was too much clutter in my feed. Β 

I know where to look for good content and still enjoy reading the honey filled buzzes from my favorite bees.

It is Holiday time and I cannot wait to talk to each one of you through your articles and comments. There is alot of beBee catching up to do.

Love to all and wishing you a fantastic Holiday season. A Happy Fulfilled Christmas!

I am a brand ambassador for beBee Inc, an ardent reader, a Purpose-Driven Career Strategist and HR Manager.

My passion is to help create a purpose-driven world around me.

I coach individuals, train teams down the path of change, and enable them to fit comfortably in the project/job assigned to them.Β 

A more human workplace is something I've dreamed of since I realized how much we get back from the community by being human and were we all not created for this very same reason.

I encourage women worldwide to recognize and embrace their true potential as entrepreneurs and believe in themselves.

I'm purpose drivenΒ and believe we must have the courage to make the right choices to activate our value-driven purpose.

For we do not grow alone we use the immediate surrounding and the people around us to grow and shine. And when we shine we shed light enabling others to see a well-defined path - Fatima Williams

I am humbled by your mention and quote of my comment. Self awareness is a journey that never ends. Each day we learn and add to our skills and understanding. It would make sense that we also are forever changing the footprints we leave in others and their footprints on us. Even a simple understanding of this process can help define our perspectives in a positive light. Decreasing the rocks we seem to place in our box routinely. The path towards wisdom begins with self and i would say that you have come quite a long way in developing a paradigm of peace and joy. We have bad days and good days, the common focus is our vision of moving forward. This is difficult to grasp if we have not begun to understand our own emotional paradoxes created in the past. Although time forces us forward it is also a healing law of physics. Time with vision lowers duration of events but more importantly, increases perseverance through future events. Amazingly the opposite of this concept hands control of our self to others/environments. My well being is now connected to someone else's.

It is good to see you write on beBee again, Fatima. I was also less present on social media lately but for a different reason - I took a social media detox. The comment by Harvey also largely resonates with me. I never try to "find myself" in the way life coaches "teach" us. Our self and the world around us change constantly. Both are variables. We live in an unstable and imperfect world, and we need to alter things constantly to this "fluid ever-changing ecosystem of success and failure" as Harvey beautifully said. I am sorry for your loss. Wishing you all the best in the year to come.

Amazing you picked up on that quote because I was reading an article yesterday that was built around it ( here : https://lifehacker.com/dont-confuse-motion-and-progress-1678075284 ) It looks like Denzil was quoting some dude called Alfred Armand Montapert - who wrote a book with a curiousity inducing title "The Supreme Philosophy of Man: The Laws of Life".

CityVP \ud83d\udc1d Manjit To take one step back and learn through observation is important. This is exactly what I've been doing and I see the power observation has when compared to action. I will not to confuse movement with progress like Denzil Washington had said!

Stepping back is a great choice and I stepped back in 2012 or so for one full year. That however was a complete stepping out, but to take one step back and learn through observation is important. Important enough to acknowledge one group of people I absolutely respect. We as a digital society call them lurkers. In the offline world we call them the silent majority. How we relate, engage or process our learning is about who we are and not a social straight-jacket that is we are socially engineered into - or at least that virtual straight-jacket that we become aware of.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

- what a great read this buzz is. I enjoyed your flowing ideas, emotions, appreciation, my mention and the uncertainty that helped you grow in such a wonderful way. I am moved by your mention and your consideration. I have had several occasions of synchronicity between us, but never to this level I experience this time. I am building on my buzz that you referred to in your buzz and amazingly you touched upon some of the points I intend to elaborate on. I shall keep my detailed response to explain in my next buzz, and surely I shall refer to this buzz substantially. Congrats on the job your beloved sister secured. Lucky she is to be your sister. I wish you a very happy Xmas and great and successful New Year.

Ken Boddie Hello Ken, Lovely to hear from you, you never cease to put a big grin on my face. I appreciate the wisdom you share and always look up to you with great enthusiasm. One of the things I've learnt this year is nothing to confuse movement with progress and I think I will be just fine. Much love to your grandkids and a Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Good to see you writing again, Fatima. As for life, the universe and where the hell are we all going, personally, I’ve never dwelt too long (if at all) on self analysis, preferring to help others on their journey instead. When faced with a choice of doors to open, I prefer to believe that whichever is the one I’ve gone through is the one for me. It will always lead me along a linear progression of improvement rather than in circles, unless I choose to look back and ponder β€œwhat if?” One thing I’ve learned in my almost 70 years on this magic revolving planet is to learn from the past but look to the future and don’t procrastinate over what might have been. As for the present, sorry but I didn’t get you one.πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ but Merry Xmas anyway. πŸŽ…πŸΌ
