Nothing

Take a Nap

When all else fails, take a nap.

If you’re ever having a bad day, Pooh is here to tell you to take a nap. You can never go wrong with naps, and let’s be honest — we all love sleeping. Sometimes, you just have to take a nap.

Puddles

When life throws you a rainy day, play in the puddles.

Sometimes, we all have bad days and feel like we’re getting rained on. However, we can take these days and use them to our advantage by playing in the puddles. Don’t let a bad day get you upset — try to make the most out of it.

Forgetting

I do remember, and then when I try to remember, I forget.

Just like the rest of us, Pooh forgets too, so don’t think you’re alone. We all forget sometimes, and that’s okay. After all, we’re only human.

Disorderly

One advantage of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.

Many of us, especially creatives, tend to have messy organization skills, but this gives us a fun new way to think about it. We’re always able to make new discoveries, just like Pooh Bear.

Weeds and Flowers

Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.

We all have value, regardless of the way others view us. Even weeds have value. Winnie the Pooh knows it, and he wants you to know it, too. If you ever have a day where you feel less than you are, remember that Pooh loves you all the same.

Love and Everything

When you love what you have, you have everything you need.

In a fast-paced world, sometimes we forget all the things we have, as we’re constantly thinking about things we don’t and things we want or need. Winnie the Pooh wants to remind us that we might already have everything we need — just take a look around. You might already everything you could ever want.
