These last few weeks, since our last “Quote to Inspire”, I’ve been doing a lot of remenising about my childhood and somethings that were my favorite then and are still my favorite things now. The thing that triggered this line of thought was seeing the movie “Goodbye Christopher Robin”.
I am hoping to get a review of the movie posted soon, but this made me think about how much I loved (and still love to this day) Winnie the Pooh and all of his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. Now my favorite character from Winnie the Pooh, was that bouncing, spring tailed friend, Tigger – however today’s quote, while not said by him, comes from one of my other favorite characters, who wasn’t always the happiest. Did you guess it? Yup, I’m talking about the one, the only, Eeyore.
This quote is beautiful and can relate really to any and all situations. Now, I did say that this is not a quote that Eeyore himself said, but you can see it in how the characters of the Hundred Acre Wood are always there for each other. Whether it is Piglett to help Winnie the Pooh gets his face unstuck from a honey pot, or Kanga to be there for Roo when the adventure he and Tigger are on don’t go to plan, or even how when Eeyore is at his lowest (and usually missing his tail) the Hundred Acre Wood gang is always there with a reassuring smile and a happy thought.
Really, I think that is was we all need, in this day and age – just a friend who is there to let us know that we are loved, cared for, and supported by those closest to us. We might not need them to fix something or do anything at all, but that knowing that there is always someone there, that truly is the greatest gift anyone can give.
How does this quote make you feel? Who is that one person in your life that you don’t need to even ask, but you know that they will be there for you to support you (or tell you not to do something crazy)?
Till Next Time – always strive to be inspired, everyday!
