Ed Sheepan: Oh silly old bear! It’s not hunny Pooh. It’s a glass of white wine.
Pooh: Oh bother. No hunny for me then.
All beginnings have an ending. An Alpha has an Omega. An alphabet starts with A and ends with Z. A job starts with an offer and ends with a resignation letter. A relationship ends with a break up. And of course, a life ends with death.
Oftentimes, we look at endings as a bad thing – a thing we dread the most as this means we’ve stopped, we’ve died, we’ve given up, we’ve been defeated, we’ve quit.
But no matter what happens, we have to say goodbye to something anyhow. Because that’s the reality – endings are inevitable. And for Pooh instead of mourning the end, why not be thankful?
As Pooh have said: “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”
Everyday is a day worth celebrating for. But today is a much more important day as today is Winnie the Pooh Day! 🙂
What’s so special about today? Well, it’s A.A Milne’s birthday!
How should you celebrate #WinnieThePoohDay? If you live near Hartfield, East Sussex, you can visit Pooh Corner, home to the world’s largest selection of “Pooh-phernalia”. You can also call your friends to spend the afternoon playing Poohsticks. 🙂 But before all these activities, “let’s begin by taking a smallish nap or two.” 🙂
