{Smile Away the Blues}

Dear Bride-to-Be:
Here's a little more about “having the blues” and the rewards of smiling! There are so many choices to make when planning a wedding—finding the right date, place, dress, invitations, flowers, service, officiant, attendants, favors, etcetera—and sometimes it all flows and sometimes it seems like it's all too overwhelming. Although your upcoming wedding is a happy occasion, you can get the blues from the weight of it all, yes?

The “blues” are heavy, but smiling lightens the heart and lights up the world around you. Take a deep, long inhale and a slow, full exhale and allow a smile to ease across your face. (Here's a secret: If you allow yourself to smile as you breathe in and out slowly, deeply and with grateful pleasure—no matter your circumstances—you will change your world on the spot!)

Smiling away your blues just may get a little grin from others as well. So be generous and give the world a gift—smile! Then keep on smiling...there's so much to be grateful for...yes?

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