{Just Smile}

Dear Bride-to-Be:
Okay, so being a bride is not always full of fun and delight. Planning a wedding can become overwhelming, and you just might “get the blues” sometimes. Here’s a little secret about feeling better in the moment from a wise woman affectionately known to many as Dr. DooLady: “What you do is simply turn up the corners of your mouth as if you were smiling. The mind translates that as being happy—as in, ‘Oh, we’re smiling, I think that means we must be happy!’”

See how fast this little smiling mind trick can lift your spirits until you’re remembering how much you have to appreciate, how much you are loved, how much you really have to smile about!

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