MRS AUSTRALIA PIPER ONEILL: FLIGHT OF THE BUMBLE BEE BY


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

If you were a bumblebee and knew that scientifically it was impossible to fly... Do you think you would be able to?

We are all taught that the entire universe can be explained by mathematics, but what about the story of the bumblebee? According to the greatest minds of science it cannot fly. Aerodynamics says it is impossible. They are too fat, their wings are too small, and they can't flap their little wings fast enough to be able to fly. But what does the bumble bee do? It ignores all the great minds, the skeptics and the science... and it just goes ahead and flies.

Now imagine if they knew they couldn't fly.  How many bumblebees would overcome the knowledge and prove that it's possible? You see the bumblebee has a purpose on this earth just like each and every one of us.  Their job is to pollinate the planet and create honey and against all odds they overcome what is seemingly impossible and do what they were put on this planet to do.

So, if a little bumblebee can defy the laws of mathematics and achieve flight then what can we achieve as humans? There is a little saying out there "If you think you can or you think you can't, you are right." Many times in our lives we are all told that there are things you can and cannot do.  Well, I'm here to tell you that "where there is a will, there is a way" and if there is something in life you want ot a goal you have to achieve you can do it.  If anyone tells you that it is impossible just remember the little bumblebee and don't let their limiting beliefs become your own.

What goals have you set for yourself? Are you actively striving to achieve them? Are you putting in the maximum effort? Or are you buying into a belief that the bumblebee can't fly? Because for every person that says it can't be done I can show you someone who can do it.

We all have the ability to reach our goals, become who and what we wish to be.  It's all up to you to believe in yourself and follow your dreams.

So the next time anyone doubts you and your goals ask yourself: if you were a bumblebee would you be able to fly?

Reach for your dreams! -Piper O'Neill Mrs Australia International

MRS AUSTRALIA INTL: A DREAM BECOMING REALITY

Today was one of the most proudest days of my life.  For the past 5 years I have been working tirelessly on a special project and today I watched my vision unfold and become a reality.

I have been writing and producing a television series that I will be putting forward to Australian and US networks later this year.  Today we filmed the first episode which showcased Look Good Feel Better, the charity closest to my heart and treated a very special cancer patient to the ultimate Look Good Feel Better experience.

I was so proud to see everyone come together and help me raise awareness for such a wonderful cause.  There are currently over 14.5 million people across the globe suffering from cancer.  My dream is to make the Look Good Feel Better program more accessible to each and every patient.

After loosing my grandfather to cancer I know first hand the physical and emotional effects that treatment can have on a patient.  Look Good Feel Better run workshops that teach makeup, skincare and head covering techniques to cancer patients to help them better cope with the appearance related side effects of treatment.  I have been with the organisation for over 6 years now and absolutely love the program.

The television series I am working on will do just that and also help to raise awareness not only for my charity platform but so many that deserve attention.

I can't wait to share with you the first episode!
A HUGE thank you to...

Don't Quit

by: Unknown Author


When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high, 
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh. 
When care is pressing you down a bit. 
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit. 
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns. 
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out: 
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow. 
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt. 
And you never can tell how close you are. 
It may be near when it seems so far: 
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
