Happiness Is Fun

By Pauline Oliver

Happy is as happy does
When all is said and done
Truly being happy
Starts with having fun

Set those happiness endorphins free
To flood your stressed out brain
With lots of happy thoughts
To relax and ease the strain
Eat chocolate
And laugh-a-lot

Chew chilis hot and red
Wear bright colours instead

Keep a dog or a cat
Try yoga on a mat

Feel sunshine warm your being
Seek beauty for the seeing

Classical music wins by miles
Exchanging lots of smiles

That's how to raise your spirit
Lift your body and your mind
This daily dose of happiness
Is a pleasure - you will find.

Our favorite famous faces become almost unrecognizable when we see what they looked like before Hollywood got a hold of them. These baby-faced future stars were only dreaming of fame when these photos were captured. Here are some of the best photos taken of celebrities when they were young and before they were famous.


Angelina Jolie, 1990

A 15-year-old Angelina Jolie shows off her baby face, which looks strikingly similar to Mila Kunis. Her career quickly picked up in the early 90s, and she has maintained her status as an A-List actress and one of Hollywood’s most sought-after talents.



Brigitte Bardot, 1958

The French model and actress rose to fame throughout the 1960s and 1970s. She is pictured above as a young and aspiring entertainer. She would go on to have a successful career in music, as well. One of her most famous quotes: “A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you.” 


Robbin Williams, 1974

Photographer Daniel Sorine happened to be shooting in Central Park in New York City one afternoon. Years later when he was looking back through photographs, he realized he captured then up-and-coming comedian and actor Robin Williams as a mime.



Pamela Anderson, 1989

Pamela Anderson lets her natural beauty shine through in this incredible early modeling photo. This was before her transition to Hollywood (and before her many surgical enhancement procedures). She went on to model for Playboy and star in the beach drama Baywatch.


Neil deGrasse Tyson, 1973

The young astrophysicist captures a selfie prior to the days of smartphones and front-facing cameras. Tyson and his family grew up in the Bronx neighborhood of New York, and he enjoyed a love of science and discovery from a very young age. He is regarded as one of the brightest minds and influential thinkers of all time.
