I ran across this photo of young YaYa and me from many years ago. Those were tough times — yet somehow we found reasons to smile. At least that’s how I remember it.
It seems that there are scientific reasons that support “putting on a happy face” even when you aren’t feeling it. Smiling can calm the nervous system, lower your blood pressure, and boosts your immune system. Furthermore, it’s contagious.
So smile and watch as the whole world smiles with you.
