Barry – the Bee



Recently (this is definitely a throwback), I saw this really fascinating, exciting, interesting, sweet, brilliant animated movie called THE BEE MOVIE! If you haven’t seen it, please go look for it. It is a must-watch! The quality of the movie was DOPE and its content was nothing short of awesome. I’d like to believe the genre is ‘comedy’. Errm…ok, we are not here to get a movie review, rather to take away with us some ‘honey’- one or two lessons I learnt from the movie using the main character, Berry, as my focal point. :D.

 Barry is a ‘bee-man’, young college graduate hoping to get an amazing job! Well yeah, like us humans.  However, he was the type that liked to explore. So, he decided to go on an adventure – to go out there, to the real world.

 He got to the ‘real world’ where humans live and noticed the ills that were done by men towards the ‘bee-world’. He tried to correct these ills in which he ‘awesomely’ succeeded. Yes!!! Berry never quit, even when the cause he was pursuing seemed IMPOSSIBLE. He was ‘bervin’ like that- resilient. He identified the challenges that were posed by the human world to the bee world and with every and all resources at his disposal and beyond; he was able to solve all mystery. What was exactly fascinating was how a small bee conquered an entire human race.

 I particularly revere him for his ZEAL, COMPASSION, INTELLIGENCE and BRAVERY. These are basic human qualities that take us to places we could never imagine. Your interest in and passion about something drives you towards its attainment even in the midst of hardest of tussles. Also, the relevant and necessary information you have about what you are pursuing takes you closer to your desired goal, therefore, seeking knowledge is very important. Confidence and bravery are also very essential in becoming successful in this world. Remember that confidence isn’t pride. Trust me, develop these qualities in the right mix and in no time, you’ll be climbing the ladder of success with your own stories to share.


Be BERVIN MAVIN like that.
