My logo is the bee. Its homophone to “be”, which implies staying present and aware, being alive. Being alive means to be happy, follow your passions and enjoy the life with gratitude.
Bees also symbolizes the wise use of nature in a sustainable way, community spirit, team effort. Taking care of others and personal power at the same time. It’s also a symbol of the sun and celebration. A balance between hard work and enjoying the fruits of the labor… honey. ️
One more interesting fact – similar to an advanced yogi, bees can control their body temperature. Be like a bee. Be strong, consistent & stay humble.
