I forgot I wanted to be a writer until 2005 when I began blogging under the super creative pseudonym Miss Britt. Since then, I've rediscovered myself and redesigned my life through the power of writing and connecting with people all over the Internet. In 2011, after narrowly escaping a divorce, my husband and I sold our McMansion in Central Florida, gave away my car, got rid of my beautiful shoe collection, and moved into an RV to travel around the country for ten months with our two kids. I learned a whole heck of a lot about happiness during that adventure.

We're currently living in Pittsburgh, a city we discovered and fell in love with during our epic road trip.

I blog about happiness at www.inpursuitofhappiness.net.

Britt and Elizabeth GilbertI don’t go to church. My affiliation with religion has been in name only for several years now, but I still find inspiration and guidance in the words of great books – most of them found in the self help section and written by women. Elizabeth Gilbert–who I lovingly refer to as “my Oprah”–and...

“For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations.”
Michael J. Fox

“When you hear the call to happiness, it is your responsibility to answer it.”
Britt Reints, An Amateur's Guide to the Pursuit of Happiness

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
Albert Einstein

“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia
