Eeyore, Tigger, or Pooh?

Yes, it is life lessons taught by Eeyore, Tigger, and Pooh. You see, it is all a matter of choices, ones that we exercise every day, every minute that we live. We choose how we react to each incident in every day.

Eeyore is depressed. Let’s face it. No matter what happens, he chooses the negative perspective. Things go downhill from there.

Tigger, on the other hand, is the ultimate optimist. He is full of life and yes, bounce. He is like a freshly-opened bottle of champagne. He approaches it all from a cup-overflowing attitude, ready to enthusiastically go forward, no matter where it leads him. He is not guilty of thinking too much or planning ahead. That sometimes gets him into bad situations.

Pooh is a true example of balanced living. When he is hungry, he hunts up his honey jar and eats till he is full. He thinks about things, but not overmuch. He is just where he is. He is actually living in the NOW.

These are characters from the children’s stories of Winnie the Pooh. Yet you will meet them in some form every day of your life. Perhaps one of them is you. You just get to choose which one.

I like to think that I am Pooh with a pinch of Tigger: That is, choosing balanced living in the NOW, but with great enthusiasm. I am definitely a glass hall-full kind of gal. Yes, I have lived through my Eeyore times, including the missing tail incident, feeling a sense of loss about people and things that were not part of my existence any more. I am certainly familiar with Tigger, just bouncing into life without regard to consequences. As I have aged, I now choose to be Pooh/pinch of Tigger, which is the best of all.

How about you? Which character type are you at present, and which would you most like to become? It is your choice with every incident that occurs to you daily. Are you willing to make a different choice?

God’s blessings upon your journey!

 

About upliftingthoughts4u

Life-long learning has been my quest always. There is so much in the world that brings us down. Like the old song says: "Eliminate the negative, Accentuate the positive..." Life, Love, Truth, Peace, Beauty, Laughter, Light, Joy = All these and more need to lift our spirits so we can soar. Daily wear and tear affects us all. Each one needs to take the time daily to look beyond the problems in our lives so we may find the solutions needed. I wish to use all my lessons learned to share uplifting thoughts with you. Come join me in trying to make this world a better place... :-) I have been happily married to author and poet W. Foster Welborn for 29 years. (His blog is URL: www.wfosterwelborn.com = RSS Feed is: www.wfosterwelborn.wordpress.com) He has 6 books on Kindle and 2 in print. I am his editor/typist. I currently have 4 more books that are in my finishing process. Watch for them!
