Wisdom from Winnie the Pooh

From the Tumblr

“Yesterday, I sat down with my youngest two brothers for a Winnie the Pooh movie. Pooh’s Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin, specifically. I was enjoying myself well enough. Then something happened.

Christopher Robin and Pooh Bear were sitting on a tree, talking. Christopher is going to school the next day, and he knows he’ll miss being with Pooh and his other friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. Here’s a piece of that dialogue.

Christopher: “I wish it could last forever.”

Pooh: “Then we must do it again tomorrow, and the tomorrow after, and the tomorrow following that.”

At this point my eyes went wide open. I believe in such a thing as eternity. I also believe that what we do right now counts when we die. If we want to be happy forever, we should probably start doing the things that make us happy right now.

I was a little speechless for a while.”
