Winnie the Pooh

A friend of mine posted a Winne the Pooh quote on Facebook. I don’t know if anyone else is a fan – I loved it as a child and I love it now. Just for different reasons. As a child it was a usually happy story with cute characters. Now as an adult.. the book/film/show is full of beautiful messages. 


Change

LyricsWhat I love most about rivers is

You can’t step in the same river twice

The water’s always changing, always flowing

But people, I guess, can’t live like that

We all must pay a price

To be safe, we lose our chance of ever knowing

What’s around the river bend

Waiting just around the river bend

I look once more just around the river bend

Beyond the shore where the gulls fly free

Don’t know what for what I dream the day might send

Just around the river bend for me, coming for me

I feel it there beyond those trees

Or right behind these waterfalls

Can I ignore that sound of distant drumming?

For a handsome sturdy husband who builds handsome sturdy walls

And never dreams that something might be coming?

Just around the river bend

Just around the river bend

I look once more just around the river bend

Beyond the shore somewhere past the sea

Don’t know what for why do all my dreams extend

Just around the river bend, just around the river bend

Should I choose the smoothest course

Steady as the beating drum? Should I marry Kocoum?

Is all my dreaming at an end?

Or do you still wait for me, dream giver

Just around the river bend?

Riverbend – Pocahontas

Decision 

I’ve been staring at the edge of the water’Long as I can remember, never really knowing why

I wish I could be the perfect daughter

But I come back to the water, no matter how hard I try

Every turn I take, every trail I track

Every path I make, every road leads back

To the place I know, where I can not go, where I long to be

See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me

And no one knows, how far it goes

If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me

One day I’ll know, if I go there’s just no telling how far I’ll go

I know everybody on this island, seems so happy on this island

Everything is by design

I know everybody on this island has a role on this island

So maybe I can roll with mine

I can lead with pride, I can make us strong

I’ll be satisfied if I play along

But the voice inside sings a different song

What is wrong with me?

See the light as it shines on the sea? It’s blinding

But no one knows, how deep it goes

And it seems like it’s calling out to me, so come find me

And let me know, what’s beyond that line, will I cross that line?

The line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me

And no one knows, how far it goes

If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me

One day I’ll know, how far I’ll go!
Just like Moana, we all have to search deep in our souls to know how far we will go. Sometimes when we rise to overcome adversity we far exceed any preconceived expectations. 

How Far I’ll Go

Wish


When a star is born

They possess a gift or two

One of them is this

They have the power to make a wish come true

When you wish upon a star

Makes no difference who you are

Anything your heart desires will come to you

If your heart is in your dream

No request is too extreme

When you wish upon a star

As dreamers do

Fate is kind

She brings to those who love

The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue

Fate steps in and sees you through

When you wish upon a star

Your dreams come true

When you wish upon a star

Makes no difference who you are

Anything your heart desires will come to you

If your heart is in your dream

No request is too extreme

When you wish upon a star

As dreamers do

Fate is kind

She brings to those who love

The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue

Fate steps in and sees you through

When you wish upon a star

Your dreams come true
While this song is beautiful and sweet..I feel that JK Rowling actually has a better measure of life ‘It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live’.  

Olaf

I’m Olaf and I like warm hugs! Came home from the gym.. showered.. and wanted to snuggle in something warm and soft. Totally cute. I’m grateful to a very special friend who bought this back from Europe for me. Snuggle time! 

Blizzard likes warm hugs too ❄️
