The Pooh Perspective


I choose an area of my house to “purge” each week, I hate clutter and don’t have much of it, however, I do have a bit of a hoarding problem when it comes to books…it’s a rainy Sunday and the girls are still sleeping so I thought I’d sort my “library” and I found a book my sister had given to me that she had given my grandmother a number of years ago.

Granny was a lover of Pooh Bear 😀

The title of the book is “Pooh’s Little Instruction Book“.


It’s a really fun book to look through, full of reminders and suggestions on how to live a good life – Winnie – The – Pooh style.

Like this one:

“Always watch where you are going.  Otherwise, you may step on a piece of the Forest that was left out by mistake.


“You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you .  You have to go to them sometimes.”

and quite possibly my favorite:

“Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known.”


Happy Sunday and don’t forget

“A little Consideration, a little Thought for Others, makes all the difference”

Daily Prompt – Take it from Me

Another Daily Prompt. Challenge

Challenge :

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve given someone that you failed to take yourself?

The best piece of advice I have given and do not always follow myself is “Don’t worry about what other people think, just be yourself.”
 I must admit I often don’t follow this advice myself … I do my best and usually what you see is what you get but I think we all wear some sort of mask from time to time…. Something I need to work on….
One more….Be yourself cause everyone else is taken ≈ not sure who wrote it but I like it 🙂
