Ignorance Is Bliss

“Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly,  but the bumblebee doesn’t know that, so it goes on flying anyway.”

~  MaryKay Ash  (1918 – 2001): Founder :~  MaryKay Cosmetics ($2.9 billion industry).  

  You go, girl!  With her pink signature Cadallac….  before Barbie.   Hahahahaha!

Remembered having watched a film several years ago. and recently read a short bio-story regarding MaryKay Ash. Reminded me of this quote about the bumblebee.  Dug it up from an archive of favorite quotes, and…TaDah!

“Coincidently”  (ha!  Not!) what also brought this to Mind is the fact that a few folks I’ve spoken with lately have been stuck in the “I can’t,” primarily due to their belief that their loved ones. or people they look up to, have the power to potentially sabotage (through disinterest, nay-saying, negating) the “I’d like to…” that lives inside another.

How sad. Amazing what someone else’s fear can do a dream, a goal. A betterment.

Please don’t be “one of those.”  MaryKay didn’t let it stop her!

And…..if you have that dream, that goal, remember that “ignorance can be bliss” ~ unfold those wings and go ahead and fly.
