“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”
Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh
During 2 years of serious health and financial turmoil, I found this to be very true. In the most difficult times, we can still choose to smile and surprisingly, that simple act can lift our spirits. I found this quote when I had cancer and immediately loved it but now that we are going to Vietnam, I am more curious about the Vietnamese Buddhist monk who coined the phrase.
