I arrived back in NYC at JFK to be surrounded by hoards of stressed people. I noticed I began to feel my body tensing and agitation towards the lost travelers. My how quickly my zen from time on Hilton Head Island melted away. Alas just as I was about to grit my teeth and give a dirty look to the couple in front of me on the taxi line I noticed a beacon of yellow light! A seemingly small smiley face sticker was staring at me and it made me smile and instantly my mood lifted.

When I saw the sticker the subtle agitations to my system fell away. I was reminded that everything is already okay and to smile! The simple act of smiling can put you in a better mood.
