The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: "Peace Begins..."

Peace begins with a smile.
— Mother Teresa

 

Kelsey smells a lavender bundle and smiles.  

 

Smiling is a powerful action.  Smiling can pave a pathway toward positive interaction with a friend or a stranger.  That pathway leads toward peace--within oneself and with others.  Physiologically, smiling sends messages to our brains that help us feel better--(for more on the science, see this article from Psychology Today.)

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.
— Thich Nhat Hanh
