You probably wonder what inspired the Secret Society of Happy People. Years ago, 1997 to be exact, my inquiring mind wanted to know, “Where are all of the Happy People?” That question lead to me asking people, “Are you happier than you admit you are?” I wanted to know if our conversations about what made us frown were disproportionate to the ones about what made us smile.
After talking to lots of people, I realized happy people needed their own group and the Secret Society of Happy People was born.
Our goals were simple…
- Encourage happy people to talk about being happy more
- Create a space for happy people to connect
