Pam Palmer Posted over 3 years ago Can we really become happier? Happier ourselves? Can we create happier places to work? Or even happier societies? I was going to say, happiness starts with a smile. Even when I don't feel like smiling, I do. It not only changes the way I feel, but also changes the way people around me act. It can't be a fake smile, though, has to be a real one.
