Is Eeyore Happy too?

I have always thought Tigger was a pretty good representation of what happiness is supposed to look like.  He is exuberant, has a zest for life, and is even impulsive at times. I have actually been proud to be called Tigger by many!


I will be honest in saying that some days I feel more like Eeyore. Does that mean I am not happy?  After all, Eeyore is usually viewed as pessimistic, gloomy and an old stuffy donkey.

I think that depends on our definition of happiness, and I am learning that happiness is so much more than I thought it was.

Tigger does represent a part of what happiness is…but so does Eeyore!  He shows up everyday; he is persistent and honest; he never gives up!

That’s just as much a part of happiness… Being resilient!  So on those days when we feel more like Eeyore than Tigger, let’s give ourselves a break.  Be proud that we are showing up and not giving up!  That’s happiness too.
