'You go up to bed and I'll come and read you a story,' my lovely Mum would say, and I'd shoot up the stairs, got washed and tucked up before she could say 'Winnie the Pooh.' As she took me to this other place, I imagined myself deep in the 100 acre woods, playing pooh sticks.
I LOVE Pooh. If you want a lesson in mindfulness and living in the now, read Pooh. And today, on Pooh day, I have been working on my own new Collection of children's stories. Before Christmas, I release 5 teeny, tiny story books to go with my new TV Series and they flew out of the door. My lovely husband and I spent every waking moment making up postal boxes and wrapping up books. The first batch sold out in just 3 days and by Christmas, I had ordered 4 batches!
I realised that this is exactly how I want to spend my life. Writing Children's Stories and making teeny tiny books. I have so many amazing things that have happened since I stepped into this whirlwind and if you'd like to stay up to date, I talk about them on my group page @ facebook. You can come and join my page HERE if you like. It will be beautiful to see you.
So, like Pooh, I am letting myself embrace the next 'grand adventure' and loving every moment. Thanks Pooh, for opening my heart at such a young age, to the idea that stories can heal us.
