Today (18 January) is Winnie the Pooh Day, but really, every day should be!
Pooh, Piglet and his friends at the Hundred Acre Woods have been regaling us for decades. We’ve shared in their adventures for so long that it bears (hah!) remembering that every now and then, we’d get an inspirational thought from him or from Piglet, Owl, or even Christopher Robin himself that we could use in every facet of our lives.
So this post is dedicated to those moments, and we’ve collected some of the greatest truths dropped from the mouth of that ‘silly old bear’ and the most lovely maps to go with them. Do enjoy!
For someone special
“I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long. If we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time.”
“If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever.”
“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”
“When you see someone putting on his Big Boots, you can be pretty sure that an Adventure is going to happen.”
“You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”
How to live life
“Life is a journey to be experienced, not a problem to be solved.”
Quotes to motivate you
“You’re braver than you believe and stronger and smarter than you think.”
“The things that make me different are the things that make me.”
Don’t forget that you can personalise your map the way you want, with any of these thoughts, or your own as well. Show someone how much they mean to you, with a map that they’ll never forget. Or you could choose a Pinboard mounted map, that you can stick push pins into, or even write on, for someone to cherish travel memories.
