There is a reason Kate Middleton, a commoner, married herself the 2nd in line to the Crown… She is smart, composed, poised and calculating. When Prince William chucked her, Kate didn’t sit at home, sad on the couch, crying to Pippa… Instead she got dolled up, painted the town red with Pippa and made sure William knew that there were plenty of other fish in the sea….Obvi this worked in her favor…
The thing I realized is Kate’s outlook doesn’t just work with men… It works with everything. For instance:
Q. Should I go to the gym tonight?
A. What would Kate do? She’d totally workout. How else does she keep her tiny frame looking fit in those Issa dresses?
Q. Would Kate sit at home and be sad about something silly?
A. Hell no. She’d say “chin-up” and don’t let a small fish bother you cause you are the bigger fish.
Q. Would Kate order the fried chicken or the sea bass?
A: It depends on how much she exercised that day AND what else she ate. Kate might be regimented but she likes to have a little bit of fun too.
I literally could go on and on… “What would Kate Do” is an amazing way to look at things.
Yesterday I had a bad day.. It started off bad and when I got home I realized how much I hated the entire day. Monday was effing DEAD TO ME. I texted Beej that I just wanted the day to be over and she sent me back a picture of Baby S…The picture made me laugh. Realizing that the day could be salvaged, I decided to give myself a pep-talk on why I was in a bad mood and what Kate would do about it.
A REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS later, I was right as rain…
Seriously, next time you are debating something try the “what would kate do” method and tell me if it works as well for you as it does me.
