Tigger or Eeyore?


Bitter or better?

Attitude plays a huge role in survival.

It all boils down to your expectations of life. What do YOU want, and are you achieving the goal?

Are you helping or yelping?

Yes, the squeaky wheel may get the grease, but is the grease toxic? Is the grease a cure or cover up?

Things are heating up in the middle east- to biblical proportions. Damascus – Jerusalem -Cairo… geographically close together, socially and religiously worlds apart… With a brewing war at hand in Syria, we’d all better get our spirits in check. The Bible doesn’t predict what may happen, it’s about what has happened, what is happening – and what will happen… and there’s plenty of evidence. We can continue to turn a blind eye to all this, or we can be prepared. Tigger or Eeyore?

Wonder what either one would do, facing the cataclysmic prophecies we are living with daily…

Well, after 53 years on this earth, I finally understand, to some degree, what living life with strong faith is all about. How there IS a peace that passes all understanding. The day you believe that God has your back, and you can truly live feeling the security of this; only then will you be able to cast away the worries and bounce-bounce-bounce like Tigger – happy and carefree. The day unbelievers are dreading, is the day believers will gloriously receive, be reunited with their loved ones passed, and the day they actually meet their loving Maker. Who could fear that?

The Eeyores of the world drag along, carrying the heavy burden of worry on their tired shoulders. Tiggers of the world enjoy what is here, regardless of circumstance… Perhaps one could be called cautious and cynical, and the other blissful and ignorant. Either way, the end result is the same… Tigger is more likely to enjoy his last moments on earth, while the Eeyore is burdened by worry up until his last breath. The self- fulfilling prophecy applies to each character individually – as the Tigger can enjoy life, thus IS happy, while the Eeyore is bothered and worried – not enjoying life – and is NOT happy.

So, the question is – how to be a Tigger?

Actions speak louder than words. A Tiggers’ main function is to spread the joy- so look joyful. Make a joyful noise… hoo-hoo-hoo-hooooo- Be physically fit, so you can bounce… and bounce… and bounce… Hang around with like-minded positive people- The emotional contagion naturally occurring between Tiggers and Eeyores keep them apart regardless. Most likely, the Eeyore is taken back by the Tiggers’ relentless outward expressions of joy and enthusiasm; as the Tigger is frustrated by the Eeyors’ perpetually pessimistic attitude. You can only share the joy with those who are ready to receive it.

So Tiggers, don’t frustrate yourselves with the likes of Eeyores. Forget about trying to help them see the light, or change their attitudes, or make them happy. It’s like teaching a pig to sing, or bringing a horse to water… if they don’t want it, it ain’t happenin’, and you can bounce all you want – to no avail.

Tiggers, don’t let anyone or anything dissuade you inner confidence and your ability to hope, your dreams are free – remember, the light always shows in the darkness…
Perhaps if there were more true Tiggers in the world, it would be a much better place. Being a Tigger doesn’t have imply ignorance. Real Tiggers are wise beyond all comprehension- as they don’t let the world touch them. Real Tiggers are resilient, confidant and able to weather any storm using the umbrella of content to shield them.

How to be a Tigger? Upgrading your expectations to preferences gives you a broader scope of acceptable outcomes- thus opening the door to be satiated, allowing more possibilities for happiness. Get in shape, cast your worries, for tomorrow is not promised, not even the next moment is promised- so it is up to US to own the responsibility for our own happiness. Accept that and take measures to fix whatever is broken and you will be on the path to becoming a True Tigger – and sealing your personal survival- in the insecure times, current and futurelly pessimistic attitude. You can only share the joy with those who are ready to receive it.

So Tiggers, don’t frustrate yourselves with the likes of Eeyores. Forget about trying to help them see the light, or change their attitudes, or make them happy. It’s like teaching a pig to sing, or bringing a horse to water…if they don’t want it, it ain’t happenin’, and you can bounce all you want – to no avail.

  2. Thanks so much! Keep writting!
    We all fall sometimes and the Light draws us back up. I bounce all the time and I annoy the Eeyores. Unfortunately, that makes me sad for them that they wont just join in on the fun and let loose. Make a Joyful noise and be spontanious with Gods Love. Letting themselves see what it means to be free of hang-ups regulation and constictions of this world . Be in this world but not of it! Rock On Girl!
