Happy Happens.
Just like the proverbial shit happens, happy happens.



Short and sweet, happiness is little more than a collection of the simple moments that bring a smile to your face, instances that surround all of us each and every day. Beautiful, soothing, or heartwarming moments that exist in both your “glory days” and within the crevices and cracks that are there in the midst of your conflict, grief and suffering.

Let’s pay homage to the joyful flashes that lift our spirits, for they are the springs that fill our souls, the many pieces that help bring about peace within us, and the littlest things that fill us with hope and promise…Every Sunday since 2010, I’ve been posting big and little moments that make me smile, those that keep me inspired to live the life of my dreams. even in the face of adversity, and simple moments that have buoyed me in difficult times.

So many of you have shared your moments with me, validating this simple, yet powerful self-care and healing technique. But here’s the thing: We need to reach MORE people, Journeyer…for there are millions of people who are looking for hope during difficult times and inspiration to fuel their days!

The best way to reach those millions in need is for them to see MORE stories, Journeyer. YOUR story, and YOURS, and YOURS, and… Together, we can collectively heal a world of hurt. Do you want to join us in spreading joy and hope, Journeyer?
