An extract from Winnie the Pooh

By AA Milne

If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember.

You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.

Who would have thought growing up reading Winnie the Pooh books that a golden yellow bear was giving us so much insight? Most of us probably didn’t even realize there was a deeper meaning in those words. The ones above have to have the most intent two lines that seem so simple but yet have such depth.

If a word with depth so deep at times we begin a sentence with if or what if, if only, or If I had or if I were a rich man. Life is filled with many ifs and if we don’t experience it in the full, we will never know. With that being said what was AA Milne telling us? Most likely that life is meant to be lived and all of us will be apart from someone we love and care about at some time or another. Yet the reality is the deeper one that death will occur and we will be separated from the one we love for a time.

There is a silver lining in this, we will be reunited with those we love. The message is pretty clear if you don’t over think it, if you take it as it is. Yes, loss is painful and it will happen in our lives and we will develop our own ways of coping from past experience. And YES, we find we can and will survive no matter what.
