Welcome to my weekly adventure to “Occupy the Blog-o-Sphere” each Thursday. I offer this hopefully uplifting picture and quote to brighten your day and bring something buoyant into your life. As you move through your day with a renewed outlook, may you pass it along.

Okay. I'll admit that this cuddly guy is not tops on most people's list of profound and motivational figures. But he sure looks great in red and was my son's favorite character until the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles came along (a sad day in Pooh's and my life).

“Don’t underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of Just Going Along, Listening to all the Things You Can’t Hear, and Not Bothering.” 

Winnie the Pooh, Stuffed-With-Fluff Philosopher 

I know you can’t live this way all the time, but in this hectic world, most of us aren’t very good at slowing ourselves down to notice and appreciate our life that is happening while we are otherwise occupied. We can learn a great deal from those who know the gift of relaxing, even if those “in the know” are imaginary characters or critters with whom we live.
