Deep in the Hundred Acre Wood where Christopher Robin plays,
you’ll find the enchanted neighborhood of Christopher’s childhood days.
I cannot help remember with fondness the endless times my daughter and I watched Winnie The Pooh when she was little. I felt inspired to write this article one afternoon and I was going to write about all of the shadow aspects of each character but, realizing that very soon was going to be Winnie The Pooh Day, I decide to focus on what I can learn about each character instead.
Here it is. I hope it inspires you.
Pooh – Stay in the present moment, be kind, look at the bright side of every situation, accept
yourself, enjoy the sweet things in life, be honest.
Tigger – Be proud of your talents and uniqueness, be excited about life, bounce off challenges, laugh at yourself, be ok with making mistakes.
Piglet – Ask for help and support, honor your feelings, be polite, acknowledge your limitations but don’t give up, take care of your home.
Rabbit – Grow and harvest what you eat, be a leader, share, work hard, keep your space free of clutter, enjoy time alone, have values, surrender.
Eeyore – Even when you don’t feel the happiest, stay connected to your friends, forgive, release expectations, there is wisdom in facing your sadness.
Roo – See the world through the eyes of innocence and wonder, have fun, be respectful to your family and elders, love, enjoy life.
Kanga – Be kind, be flexible, have compassion, nurture yourself, be of service.
Owl – Educate yourself, share stories with others, recall the things that make you happy and proud, look at things from a different perspective, be polite.
Christopher Robin – Build a community of support, be of service, celebrate, stay connected with nature, play, use your imagination, have fun.
