Through the enchanting world of Winnie-the-Pooh we can soak up some invaluable lessons on simplicity and natural living
GOOD MORNING !
It seems to me that simplicity is something to be desired and worth striving for. A lot of people I know pack so much into their lives, that sometimes finding a quiet moment is hard to do. Not only do we clutter up our homes with lots of stuff, but we clutter up our lives with things that don’t really matter also. It pays to take a long hard look at what is really necessary. Some get so involved in things outside their family life, that the family gets left behind. Some get so overwhelmed with work that nothing else seems to matter. Balancing it all out is so important for our well being, both mentally and physically.
In our world many have an “I want it all’ disposition. Take it from me we just cannot have it all without consequences. I’ve learned to step back and evaluate many things in my life and when it comes down to it, I make do with a lot less than most folks I know and I’m probably more at peace that a lot I know too.
I do hope that you can have a peaceful day and not let any outside influences stress you out. Remember the story of Christopher Robin and just go along with what you need to do and don’t bother….
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Today I know that I cannot control
the ocean tides. I can only
go with the flow. . . .

the Atlantic to my specifications, I sink.
If I flail and thrash and growl and grumble,
I go under. But, if I let go and float,
I am borne aloft.
