About this Happiness Blog
Welcome to the Happsters, a blog about happiness. I believe that happiness comes when you focus on the 4 G’s: Gratitude, Growth, Giving & Gathering, so I focus a lot on these four elements of a happy life in my writing. I’m all about supporting others, appreciating everything I have, continuing to learn and grow, striving to help others, and coming together as a community.
About the Author
My name is Kelli & I live in San Diego, CA with my husband, Billy. I recently completed the “Science of Happiness” 10 week course through UC Berkeley. I love learning about ways to make ourselves happier and thinking of new ways to spread happiness. I graduated from USC in 2010 and started the Happsters in January of 2013 when I saw volunteers from an organization called “Happier Boston” holding up happy signs for travelers at a train station and handing out oranges to anyone who wanted them. It occurred to me that the world would be a much better place if we put happiness at the forefront of our lives and went out of our way to spread happiness to other people who needed a boost. So I created a movement to do just that. I hope you’ll join me on this happiness journey! Questions or comments? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A few fun facts about me:
♥ Community is incredibly important to me, both online and offline, and is a big part of the reason that the Happsters has become such a meaningful part of my life. I’ve met the BEST people through this happiness movement and I am so grateful for all of you.
♥ I loooooove a good quote and think that a simple sentence has the potential to change how we view the world. I share quotes every day on my Instagram page.
♥ One of the activities that makes me happiest is taking sunset strolls around my little beach town. I go on these walks most days after work.
♥ Sandwiches are my favorite meal and I eat them every day – sometimes multiple times a day – and avocados are my literal jam (on everything).
♥ My favorite game is Tetris and my favorite sport is ping-pong.
♥ I took guitar lessons after college for 6 months and came out only learning half of Eric Clapton’s song “Tears in Heaven.”
♥ Kittens are an instant happiness boost for me and I look up pictures of random kittens daily.
♥ I like to think of myself as crafty, but my husband ends up finishing most of my projects.
P.S. I started the Happsters for fun and have a full-time job (at Inspire360), so I try to get back to everyone as quickly as possible. Please be patient with me :). Sending you love!
