The movie Christopher Robin is a heartwarming film that reminded me of the many reasons I love being a creative. There is something so special about being in the moment, taking in people and environments with an open heart and slowing down to be grounded. The film reminds a grown up Christopher Robin played by Ewan McGregor what it was like to be loved and give love. He is also reminded of the importance of playfulness in discovering new ideas with a fresh perspective.
Some of my favorite quotes from the stories on Winnie the Pooh:
“You’re braver than you believe and stronger and smarter than you think.” —Winnie-the-Pooh
Winnie The Pooh: What day is it?
Christopher Robin: It’s today.
Winnie The Pooh: My favorite day.
“There’s always time for a smackeral of wonder.” —Winnie-the-Pooh
I have been enjoying reading the book “A Walk in the Wood: Meditations on Mindfulness with a Bear Named Pooh” by Joseph Parent. The book brings up the point of being grounded and connected to the earth. One of my favorite expeditions to take is to go grounding where your bare feet can touch the ground. I have come away with a clearer mind, sense of calm and inspiration to do something new.
