New month. New day. New leaf. So you’ve woken up and decided you’re finally going to take on the big, big problem that’s been weighing on you — perhaps it’s shoring up your public libraries, helping homeless dogs and cats, or fighting climate change.
The lifespan of a worker bee ranges from six weeks in the summer to twenty weeks in the winter. Most of which is spent gathering nectar to make honey.
A bee in her lifetime makes only 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey” — a tiny fraction of the hundred pounds of honey that a typical colony needs to survive. The most remarkable thing is that they don't even do it for themselves. A bee won’t directly benefit from the honey she makes; instead, it will allow future generations to thrive after she is gone.
This too is how we can change the world — by not worrying about the size of our contributions and by letting our efforts join the actions of others.
Keep making honey. Your 1/12th of a teaspoon counts.
