Christopher Robin’s Goodbye To Winnie The Pooh




“Promise me you’ll always remember you’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think!”

Have you ever had one of those days where everything you did seemed to go wrong? You should have stood up for yourself and you didn’t; you gave up too easily and your brain didn’t seem to get in gear all day?

It’s at times like these I often think of those wonderful words of Christopher Robin in AA Milne’s beautiful parting story between him and Winnie the Pooh as he is about to go to college.

Pooh Bear isn’t and never claimed to be Yogi Bear. He’s not “smarter than the average bear” he’s the one that Tiggr observed as “the one whose head is stuffed with fluff!”

Over many adventures Pooh Bear learned many things from his experiences and Christopher Robin was always there to encourage him into being a better bear! So came the words of this wonderful advice that I believe we should all take to heart!
