Guest Post: Spreading Happiness with The Happsters

22 Jun

Hi All! I have a visitor on the blog today. Her name is Kelli from The Happsters. She was one of the first blogger friends that I met. She is in the San Diego area too, so we have been able to get together and build a friendship through our common interests. So happy to have met her, and I love the movement she is starting through her blog. I asked her to stop by and share a little bit about The Happsters. Take it away Kelli…

I started the Happsters in January when I saw that the Today Show had featured a suicide prevention organization called “Happier Boston”. They showed volunteers going to a train station in Boston, holding up happy signs for travelers walking by, and handing out oranges to anyone who wanted them. I absolutely loved the idea and it occurred to me that if people went out of their way to spread happiness, the world would be a happier place. I’ve always been interested in happiness and realized that there wasn’t a movement out there that was created to make the world a better place through random acts of happiness. So I decided to create the Happsters!

We make other people happy and let others know when they make us happy.  One of the ways we  spread happiness is by giving happy notes to express our gratitude to people we encounter (our mailmen, waitresses, family members, friends, etc.). You can become an official Happster & get free Happy Notes here. We also blog about everything related to happiness. Check it out here.

We now have over 320 official Happsters in 20 countries, and our goal is to have 10,000 Happsters spreading happiness in their communities by 2014 (ambitious, I know!).

happy, the happsters, smile

Have you spread happiness lately to friends, family members, or even strangers? Let me know in the comments!

Hello Again, Monday.

17 Jun

Hello again, Monday. You sure do come around quickly! Why do the weekends have to be so short?

Even though it was a short one (and my little guy was teething and unhappy a lot of the time), we had a good one.

We played at the park on Friday and Saturday…

grass, park, baby

playing, park, grass, baby

outside, sunshine, park, grass, happy, baby

My little man really loves to be outside. Playing in the grass makes his day! 🙂

daddy, Father's day, baby, park, playing

He sure loves his daddy too! We spent the afternoon with my hubby’s family for Father’s Day. It was a nice day. 🙂

I don’t have high hopes of today being a nice day though. I have jury duty. Boo! I hope I get released early!!

I sure hope you are nice to me, Monday.

And, I sure hope today and the rest of the week flies by because I am really looking forward to meeting one of my bloggy friends from A Fox & A Wolf on Friday!

How is your Monday going so far? What do you have planned for this week, anything exciting?
