Be Like A Wasp by Delina Hill-Brooker


There was a wasp that got into her house the other day. We have vaulted ceilings and it seemed to only want to stay in the upper most part of the ceiling, where I could not reach it with a broom or spray. It kept moving, coming down a little bit, only to return back and hit the ceiling. I grew tired of watching it continuously bumping itself on the ceiling, so I decided to sit down and watch it. My plan was, once it got tired, and came down for a rest, I’d kill it.

Thirty minutes went by and it still hadn’t come down. That got me to thinking. Maybe it hasn’t come down because it KNOWS that it was meant to go higher. Just because the ceiling is there, doesn’t mean that there’s nothing beyond the ceiling.
That made me reflect on instances in my life where I’ve tried, and because I kept hitting a brick wall or ceiling, I stopped or changed my route, but still felt unfulfilled. Maybe it’s because my original path is what I was supposed to be doing.

It’s so interesting the things we can learn from nature. Don’t let obstacles stop you, bring you down, kill you, your dream or what you feel is inside of you. Be like a wasp, ignore the ceilings and always aim higher.
