I always think Winnie the Pooh has some great pearls of wisdom. It was the ultimate Disney for me when I was little – my bedroom wall was the 100 acre wood (as painted by my Mum – there’s dedication. I was always bought Winnie the Pooh characters for my birthdays, until I had the full set (I even had a Gopher…who else had a Gopher?!). So when I had to think of my favourite animal, I was fairly certain where it would come from. Sure, Tigger is great, Piglet is a top best friend, Pooh Bear himself is so loveable…but it had to be Eeyore.
Eeyore is the ultimate optimist – despite being the most downcast animal you can imagine. Everything is a disaster for Eeyore – but he can always find a bright side.
