This quote brought Tigger to mind, as anything to do with bouncing will. You can learn about Vivian Komori- here. Tigger has bounced in and out of our lives since before my youngest, Andy learned to walk. Right before he took his first steps, he would bounce in place. “Teeeeger” was his favorite Winnie the Pooh character. Little did we know how telling that was until Andrew walked, or should I say bounced. To this day, Andrew has a spring in his step which makes him easy to identify everywhere he goes.
Very early on, little baby Beej expressed an interest in Tigger. He is mesmerized when Tigger enters his line of vision and has recently been reaching out to grab his furry friend. It appears that Beej has inherited Uncle Andrew’s love for Tigger.
This quote really jumped out at me this morning. There are times when I feel like I’m not accomplishing everything I should and it’s been weighing me down. I’m not making progress. I’m letting the smallest obstacles trip me up. After first thinking about Tigger, Andrew and Beej, this quote really got me thinking about my response to what’s going on. I think I lost my bounce somewhere along the way. All it takes is one unexpected thing and I’m knocked off course. I seem to have forgotten how to bounce back on track, or at least look at the direction I’ve been pushed and see if it’s worth pursuing.
It’s time for me to channel my inner-Tigger and get my bounce back!
