“What is day is it?” asked Pooh
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet
“My favorite day,” said Pooh
Pooh has a great attitude. We should have the same but we don’t live in Pooh’s world. He lives in a happy and loving world where no matter what today brings it always ends up wonderful and there are sweet dreams. Pooh’s world is fiction where all ends well and everyone lives happily ever after.
Our world is not a place of fiction, though there are those that would like us to believe their fiction is truth, and all does not end well with sweet dreams to follow. Still, we should try to have a good attitude. But there are things that just get in the way. Some of the things that get in the way of my good attitude and don’t make for favorite days in my life;
- Sometimes I don’t see what others see when looking at the same things
- Sometimes I don’t hear what others hear when listening to the same things
- Some things I think are right others think are wrong
- Some things I think are wrong others think are right
- There are people I like that others don’t
- There are people I don’t like that others do
- I don’t love or even like some people
- Some people don’t love or even like me
That’s just the way it is. I am trying to be more understanding. But it is a bumpy road.
This day is the only one we have
It may not be a favorite
Let’s make it the very best we can

Do the best that you can! Be grateful and respectful and be sure to stop and smell the roses! Excellent post, Patricia.
Wise words, Eugenie!
I have to tell you just how much I loved this. The innocence of it, the way it flows, how you teach a noble lesson while softly entertaining us, like the teacher you are.
You remind me to include gratitude in our mixed bag of emotions. Right now I’m mewling over a decision I made feeling it was the best thing for me, letting go of the financial part of it. Came down to peace or money, I chose the former. I guess having choice is something to be grateful for.
Again Patricia, I loved this! Susannah
Having choices is something to be thankful for but it is not always easy to have to make a decision. You are a wise woman to choose peace over money…money cannot buy peace or happiness.
Thank you for your encouraging words.
I love the piece, as well as the peace I hunger for on a daily basis.
I do love Pooh and his attitude. But you’re right in real world we cannot be like him.
But we can root for the sentiments of Pooh, can’t we? 🙂
Yep, we are in the real world and it is not always fun. We may not have Pooh’s attitude but we can have a good one no matter what the day brings.
That’s absolutely right. ❤️
Every day is a good day………… some just better than others. I like Pooh’s philosophy
Yes, we can, even if we have to act as if sometimes. I’m here donning my act as if wear as I write this. I always like your comments. They’re gentle and apt for all that Patrica pens.
Thank you very much indeed. I’m pleased.
I like your take on the days. Sometimes we just gotta take what comes and make the best of it.
🙂 thanks Patricia.
I can relate to all those questions. I think all of us can relate to those questions. Perception is such a wonderful thing.
Awww on that kitty. It looks like it’s going to do some fun things.
Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. ♥
The cat does look like he has some plans for the day. Whatever happens, he will probably end up taking a nap…what we should do when we can.
Hello Patricia – I have a friend who says “it is what it is”. Soo my thinking is we must make the best of what we have. If we can, then change it otherwise learn to live with it, or drop it from our life.
Yes, we need to change what we can and those things we can’t change we need to let go of and do the best we can. Good to see you, Judith, thanks for stopping by.
