SOAPBOX® mini-motivation…with Pooh

     We’re always told it’s the little things in life that really matter...keep us going…reveal the greatest importance…and leave the most memorable mark on our fleeting memories.  Chances are we have that 2-second a-ha moment every other day or so.  But with the buzz of an obnoxious alarm, another day-o-decisions smacks us upside the head, and, admittedly, many of us wake and grunt through another seemingly nightmarish day (though it rarely is) towards our artifically flavored, pie-in-the-sky American dream. 

I suppose an alternative habit might be to create your own a-ha moment upon waking… I mean, it’s called WAKING UP, right?!  Perhaps a Pooh-ism might put you in the mood of change…                  ~KD


“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.
