This past weekend, I watched Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017), and am now having a lot of feels because of it. Unlike Disney’s live-action adaptation, Christopher Robin (which hit theaters earlier this month), Goodbye Christopher Robin is a biographical drama of Winnie-the-Pooh author A. A. Milne, with a more depressing tone unfortunately. You can read an in-depth review by Robin Wright over at The New Yorker. Yet, like similar tales of hardship, there remains some light. The Winnie-the-Pooh series has brought uplifting wonder to its readers for nearly ninety years, through times that may have been considered as anything other than bleak. This week’s Monday Motivation presents you with some Winnie-the-Pooh and Winnie-the-Pooh inspired quotes to sweeten up your Monday.
“You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.” —Winnie-the-Pooh
“‘When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,’ said Piglet at last, ‘What’s the first thing you say to yourself?’
‘What’s for breakfast?’ said Pooh. ‘What do you say, Piglet?’
‘I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?’ said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. ‘It’s the same thing,’ he said.” —Winnie-the-Pooh
“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”—Winnie-the-Pooh
