"Promise me you will always remember:
You're BRAVER than you believe,
and STRONGER than you seem,
and SMARTER than you think."

Christopher Robin said this to Winnie-the-Pooh, written by A. A. Milne in 1926!! Still true today.
This helps me when I feel overwhelmed, or just plain tired. emoticon

    so sweet, so simple and yet so important for us to say to ourselves every day and whenever we need it! we are far stronger and more capable than we think. this reminds us that by constantly challenging ourselves we will find the strength within us we never knew was there before. emoticon
