“Today was a Difficult Day,” said Pooh.
There was a pause.
“Do you want to talk about it?” asked Piglet.
“No,” said Pooh after a bit. “No, I don’t think I do.”
“That’s okay,” said Piglet, and he came and sat beside his friend.”
“What are you doing?” asked Pooh.
“Nothing, really,” said Piglet. “Only, I know what Difficult Days are like. I quite often don’t feel like talking about it on my Difficult Days either.
“But goodness,” continued Piglet, “Difficult Days are so much easier when you know you’ve got someone there for you. And I’ll always be here for you, Pooh.”
And as Pooh sat there, working through in his head his Difficult Day, while the solid, reliable Piglet sat next to him quietly, swinging his little legs…he thought that his best friend had never been more right.~A.A. Milne
We all have those Difficult Days that seem to pop out of nowhere, stopping us in our tracks. Rather than allowing these days to derail you from your joy and your purpose, use them to propel yourself forward with a renewed and vibrant appreciation for everything that is so wonderful in your life. For in every Difficult Day you get through with grace and joy intact (and with the help of your own version of Piglet!), there are a hundred magical days waiting to remind you of the beauty of your life.
