{Take A Deep Breath First!}

Dear Bride-to-Be:
Weddings are like a microcosmic slice of real life magnified ... and when planning a wedding, things seem to speed up in the busyness of coordinating and organizing. So do you want a quick way to relax and refresh? You want "time" itself to slow down? Then take a deep breath first!

Try it. Right before you make a decision, or begin a meeting, or when you're feeling overwhelmed, or an upset is bubbling up, or you feel just a little weary: Take a slow, deep breath (an easy, soft inhale and a long, slow exhale) and see the difference it makes in the outcome. It's simple but very effective. Take a deep breath first...then followed by another and another. (Slow your breaths and time slows down. Deepen your breaths and reach a deeper part of you.)

Take care of you first, then there is more of you available to love on others! A beautiful bride takes a deep breath first so her I love yous come from deep inside.

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