Wisdom comes from many sources, and so does inspiration

What is wisdom? I’m not sure I have any but I know I have loads of experience, some of it mistakes, hopefully not too many repeats in there.

But I have learned, and I have observed and I probably know more good habits than I practice, but I try to practice a few consistently.

One of the sources of wisdom I think we have is from our family, and friends. If we listen, they will gladly share their experiences, if we are wise enough to hear.

I think that wisdom begots inspiration in many instances.  I think A.A. Milne must have been listening and observing closely when in 1926 he wrote Winnie-The-Pooh, his first inspiring story.

Inspiring, endearing, the stories were written by this Dad for his son, Christopher Robin, and the main character was teddy bear owned by his son.  The stories are sincere, and have been translated into many languages and even made into film.

The stories are about friendship, encouragement, and written indelibly between the lines, the love of a father. Don’t you think?
