If You Want to Look Younger

“Joy is the best makeup.” Anne Lamott

Most of us don’t realize how witchy or decrepit our faces look when we are unhappy, mean, worried, fearful, jealous, or bitter. Sometimes I scare myself when I accidentally see my reflection in the computer screen while I am working. EEK!

When I don’t actively concentrate on joy and contentment, my mouth turns down into a nasty, wrinkle-inducing, upside down U, my brow furrows, and my lips tighten up like a constipated old lady who is angry about things not being the way they used to be.

Awareness of this “beauty thief” also keeps me from acting like a creep sometimes…which is good for others too, even if part of my motivation is just a tiny bit narcissistic. haha
