{True Blue Love}

Dear Bride-to-Be:
You've heard the expression “true blue”—yes? The old phrase means “loyal and unwavering in one’s support” and comes from the Middle Ages where in Coventry, England, a manufacturer’s blue cloth had a reputation for not fading; the color stayed “true.”

In the world of love and commitment, what’s the nature of being “true blue”? Staying true to your word . . . staying true to your heart . . . staying true to yourself.

Even when affection, connection, or attention fades, you can always return to love to find your direction. Love has many colors but perhaps only one truth. How do you express “true love”?

Take this moment to have a little “check-in” with your heart. How can you create love that is even more “true blue”? What needs to be said or done? Perhaps an apology or just be in touch with someone to restore your heart connection. Say the “hard stuff” with love and stay true to your soft, strong self. Gentle words are courageous words and have a certain strength to them.

Love. Listen. Let go.
...with love from  Cornelia
