Email of the Day: I Went From Upside Down to Right-Side Up

Email of the Day: I Went From Upside Down to Right-Side Up



When I started listening to you, I was neither a girlfriend to my husband, nor was I a very good mommy to my kidlets. You quickly convinced me I needed to become both, and fast. But the change seemed too enormous, and I hardly knew where to begin. So I started to smile. And it has made all the difference in the world.

 

My husband used to come home to a stressed-out wife who was overwhelmed with responsibilities, and who always had four million things on her mind that hadn't been done yet. Now he comes home to a wife who is delighted to see him. Every time he walks in the door, no matter what I am doing, and no matter the "to-do" list scrolling through my brain, I put on a smile and suddenly, he becomes the only thing on my list of things "to-do" (wink wink).

 

My children used to have a mommy who felt unprepared to raise and mother them--a mommy who was constantly tired, and who couldn't even just keep up with them. Now, when they come downstairs in the morning, I greet them with a huge smile and a hug. And for just a moment the breakfast and lunch dishes I haven't done all disappear. When school is over, I greet them with a huge smile and a hug, and nothing else matters.

 

Dr. Laura, you have turned me from upside down to right side up, and it has made all the difference in the world to my family.
