Hey, I am not sure if you grew up with Tigger and pooh or not, but WOW, the lessons we can learn from this group of misfits.
First off, you have pooh, who is mild mannered, loveable and just a calming soul. Next you have piglet, um, well he is kinda neuroitc, bordering on a nervous breakdown and drinking problem (that is when he discovers drinking). Then we move onto Eeyore, well he is a mess altogether. Most of us have that one friend that sees mostly the negative things in life. And finally Tigger, the guy who can’t be brought down. Sure, he has his moments of self pity, but he always find the bright side and make the best of it.
Sure there were others, owl and rabbit, kanga and roo. But these 4 were helpful for me in learning how to deal with each other. Piglet was a challenge sometimes, how do you bring someone down to your level to communicate with them? What about Eeyore ? Keeping him positive was impossible, so they learned to let him be him and help him when he needed it. Pooh, well he wasn’t hard to please, give him honey and friendship and he was yours forever. Tigger on the other hand, I like him, might even get a tattoo of him come to think of it. He was always rocking his game, excited about life, adventure and I bet he loved mondays like I do.
This group of friends along with Christopher Robin created many memories for me along their journey, just took me awhile to realize it. Thanks guys for never growing up!!!!
