Doesn’t just looking at this blog post graphic, with its bouncy, colorful, confetti-like dots, make you feel a little perked up? A little JOYFUL, dare I say?
Confetti falls under the category of Abundance in the great pantheon of joy-making visuals that Ingrid Fetell Lee explores and explains in her excellent book, Joyful!
Fetell Lee was a designer with an eye toward useful, ergonomic items, who had an mind-opening experience that led her to research what visual experiences seem to elicit joy in humans on an almost universal, primal level — and now, we’re reading all about it and how to implement those facets into our own lives in the Boho Berry Book Club!
If you’d like full instructions on how the Boho Berry Book Club works and how to join, head here.
My interest was initially piqued by Fetell Lee’s TED Talk that almost serves as the thesis for the book, and it got me thinking about the things that bring me joy — which is different than happiness. While happiness is profound, joy comes in pops. But stacking up enough of those pops seems pretty profound to me…and I’m so happy to be exploring that idea this month in our book club. I hope you’ll join us!

Kristen Rogers Anderson (@chillinkristen) co-hosts the podcast Guide to the Unknown (gttupod.com), where she and her brother Will Rogers talk about mysteries, the paranormal, urban legends and folklore, but ya know, keep it light. She works as an assistant for Kara Benz and probably packed those Boho Berry stickers in your journal.
Kristen also teaches restorative yoga — basically an assisted nap — and has a major thing for Bravo programming. She loves being outside with her dog, Crumbs, eating good food in restaurants or crappy food in front of the TV with her chef husband, Ryan, and cracking up with her very, very loved friends and family.
