Gretchen Rubin is the author of several books, including the #1 New York Times and international bestseller, The Happiness Project ~ an account of the year she spent test-driving the wisdom of the ages, the current scientific studies, and the lessons from popular culture about how to be happier. On her blog, The Happiness Project, she reports on her daily adventures in the pursuit of happiness.

……..

In the expanding universe of TED talks, Dan Gilbert will surprise you with his take on science of Happiness.

Malcolm Gladwell offers up the nature of choice and Happiness with a story about spaghetti sauce.

There’s plenty more chatter here about Happiness ~ how to buy it, how to design it, how to measure it.

But at Happster.com, it’s not about pursuing Happiness.  It’s about making someone else happy.

Happsters make other people happy. Through random acts of Happiness, they make the world a better place.

  1. I love this one, Toni–and you are the Poster Child of the movement! So much of life is choice, which is what I remember each time I recite the serenity prayer. Some things can’t be changed, but each of us CAN choose to be happy and pass it on to others. You do that every day–and I’m sure trying! I have the perfect mentor, friend! M.

  3. This reminds me of the little notes I’d hide in the kids’ and Jack’s lunches. Years later I found a stash of them under one of the beds. I love that they weren’t thrown away in the school trash. This is a great post, Toni. “Be Happy” is right up there in my mind with “Stand Up.”
