When I first heard that the Christoper Robin movie was coming out I was so excited because I knew that my kids would enjoy it. They had recently been listening to Winnie the Poo on audiobook and were now happily intertwined with the character and his friends. Eeyore, Owl, Piglet, Tigger, Kanga and of course Winnie the Poo. Now, this is not a typical Christopher Robin movie review. It is however, my thoughts on the Christopher Robin movie, wrapped around life,love and tidbits about a cute bear named Winnie the Pooh.
But the Winnie the Pooh is not the focus of this film. Christopher Robin is. Once spontaneous and carefree, Christopher Robin is now enveloped in the responsibilities of adulthood.
I couldn’t help but relate to Christoper Robin in that way. As a matter of fact, just this morning I was busy selecting the kids school activities for next fall and was conflicted between those activities that they really needed to be involved in and the part where sheepishly somehow cross over into over scheduling.
It happens so quickly and before you know it, you’re all caught up. No room for spontaneity. No room for play. No room to be wild and free. That’s why everyone needs a Winnie the Pooh in their lives. Winnie the Pooh may be your friends but many times Winne the Pooh are your kids.
Winne the Pooh introduces simplicity. Spontaniety. Wonder. Sometimes we can get so busy chasing the dream that you don’t realize that the “dream” is chasing you.
So here’s why you should take your family to see Christopher Robin movie.
It’s a great excuse to wear this cute shirt.
A true family movie.
Many introspective moments.
It’s a movie for kids as well as adults.
You’ll learn and grow.
Winnie the Pooh is so cute.
Christopher Robin is a great summer movie.
And at the end of the day, what is the motivation behind an over scheduled and frazzled life? Where we don’t even have time to spend with the ones we love. The ones we deem most important.
Love is taking a few steps backward, even more…to give way to happiness to the one you love”.
